The Swedish striker has been on the sidelines for the past seven months.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on the verge of returning to AC Milan’s training after completing his months-long recovery process.

The 41-year-old underwent ACL surgery back in May, missing the first half of the new Serie A season.

However, he’s about to make his return after spending seven months on the sidelines.

According to Goal, Zlatan will return to Milan’s training on December 5.

The Swede will have a few weeks to regain full fitness ahead of the club football’s restart of the World Cup.

Rumours about Zlatan’s plans to retire started emerging in Italian media. However, the experienced star dismissed those reports by insisting he won’t retire in September.

“When I come back, I will be heard, you can count on it. I will do it with violence,” Ibrahimovic told Gazzetta dello Sport“I’m not going to retire, I’m coming back and I won’t give up.”

The Rossoneri veteran added: “If I see a player stronger than me, I’ll stop. But I haven’t seen him yet.”

Milan sit second in the Serie A with 33 points from 15 games so far this season. The defending champions are eight points behind Napoli, who lead the table after a brilliant start to the campaign.
