Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a one-year contract extension with AC Milan.

After weeks and weeks of uncertainty, the forward’s future at the club has now been sorted.

Ibrahimovic secured his return to Milan in the winter and scored 11 goals in the second half of the 2019-20 season.

His performances caused the Rossoneri hierachy to push ahead with an offer for a new deal despite the fact the striker will turn 39 next season.

“AC Milan is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement for the contract renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, extending the partnership with the Rossoneri Club until 30 June 2021,” the club said in a statement on their website.

The big Swede joined his team-mates and coach Stefano Pioli when the club’s pre-season activity resumed today.

The Ibrahimovic extension comes as a boost for Milan, with the club looking to continue their recent resurgence under Stefano Pioli.

The Rossoneri have lost only twice since the Swedish forward re-joined the club back in January.

Ibrahimovic’s Milan career began 10 years ago back in 2010. Since then, he has racked up 85 appearances, 56 goals, a Scudetto and an Italian Super Cup with the club.
