The 40-year-old striker has put pen to paper on a new contract to extend his incredible career for a 27th campaign.

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

The Sweden international’s previous deal expired at the end of June, and while he is still recovering from a serious knee injury, he has committed himself to another season at San Siro.

By the time Ibrahimovic’s latest contract runs out, he will be at least 41 years old.

“AC Milan is pleased to announce the renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract until June 30, 2023. The Swedish forward will continue to wear the number 11 shirt,” read a club statement.

How did Zlatan do last season?

Before undergoing surgery on a knee injury, which may keep him sidelined for the rest of the year, in May, Ibrahimovic continued to impress on the pitch at San Siro in 2021/22.

The former Manchester United, Inter Milan, PSG, and Barcelona striker scored eight goals in 23 league appearances to help Stefano Pioli’s side claim a first Serie A since 2011.

Ibra also confirmed last season that he plans to continue his career, telling an Italian talk show: “I want to play as long as possible. As long as I have that adrenaline, I will continue.”

The big Swede has managed 92 goals and 35 assists in 158 appearances across two spells for AC Milan. He has helped the club win two league titles and the Supercoppa Italiana.
