Well the talks of Zlatan Ibrahimovic making the switch to Serie A again has come to an end as AC Milan were able to sign the Swedish striker on a 4-year contract from Barcelona. Although Pep G. has been upset with the way his agent Mino Raiola has been handling the ordeal, this did not Milan from getting the man they need.
“AC Milan would like to communicate they have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Barcelona on a loan deal with the right to an option to buy him after the 2010/2011 season for the sum of €24m. He will have a medical on Monday and then sign his contract.”
Is what a statement read on AC Milan’s official site.
Barcelona lost a lot a money here as they originally paid €66m for his services but after the disappointing season and after having signed David Villa from Valencia, the deal does not really hurt the Spanish champions.
Adriano Galliani has got to be happy that he stayed the extra days to sign Ibra from Barcelona as the deal was able to pull through for the Italian club. It will definitely pay for Milan as they look to regain the top spot in the league.
