Ibrahimovic signs one-year contract extension with AC Milan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a one-year contract extension for AC Milan to keep him at the club until June 2023.

The Sweden international returned to San Siro in December 2019 after leaving Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy, having vowed to end Milan’s long wait for the Scudetto and subsequently delivered in the 2021-22 season as the Rossoneri won their first Serie A title in 11 years.

Meanwhile, Injuries restricted Ibrahimovic to just 12 appearances in all competitions last term, as he is expected to be out until January following an operation on his left knee, but Milan have rewarded the 40-Year-Old striker with a new contract to keep him at the club until June 2023.

Former Liverpool striker Divock Origi arrived earlier in the transfer window to bolster Pioli’s attacking options as Milan aim to defend their Serie A title in the upcoming campaign, which the Rossoneri start at home to Udinese on August 13.

The Belgian scored 22 goals in 107 Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side, while only starting 34 of those matches, and will provide additional competition for striking options alongside Giroud, Leao and Ibrahimovic.
