The Swedish star hopes to reach another agreement on his contract with Milan.

AC Milan


Zlatan Ibrahimović

, is planning on lengthening his stay at San Siro with a contract, which is expected to extend beyond his 40th birthday. The 39-year-old, who joined Milan for a six-month deal before renewing his contract for another 12 months, admitted to being open for contract talks.

He told

Corriere dello Sport


“I’ll continue playing as long as I feel well. Then we’ll see, we’ll talk about my contract.”

“I didn’t want to put myself in a trap with no way out, that’s why I initially signed a six-month contract which I renewed afterwards. Others made different choices.”

“I don’t want to talk about how many games I’ve played, it makes me feel old. My challenge is to develop a young team now, it’s something different from what I used to do. But being successful in it makes me feel happier than when I win."

Ibrahimović later talked about his return to


and his current situation with the team, adding:

“Today I feel like a leader. The team follows me.”

“Ten years ago, it was a different Milan. But even the Milan I found in 2020 was different, a young team. We work and we sacrifice. The results are not just my merit.”

“We are doing great things, but we haven’t won anything yet.”

“It’s still too early, there are many games left, but we don’t set limits, second-placed are just the first losers. I only want to give the best for this team, all the time, also during training.”

The Swedish frontman also praised their 21-year-old goalkeeper,

Gianluigi Donnarumma

, whose contract expires in the summer, saying:

“He is the best goalkeeper in the world, but I never tell him. He must continue to have ambition, but it’s not normal that he’s never played in the Champions League.”
