Zlatan Ibrahimovic will leave Milan and return to Allsvenskan to play for Hammarby, according to Jesper Jansson, the Swedish club’s sporting director.
Ibrahimovic returned to Sweden in late March following the outbreak of the pandemic, which resulted in the suspension of Serie A season.
The 38-year-old has worked in his homeland to maintain his physical condition by coaching the Hammarby team, the club he co-owned in November.
The former La Galaxy striker joined Milan in January by signing short-term deals and as things stand, he will be a free player in the summer after the end of the season.
Ibrahimovic has admitted that he is not sure if he will play next season and Jasson believes that there is a good chance that he will play at home.
Asked if Hammarby could bring in the former Swedish international this summer, Jasson said: “Maybe I think so. But only Zlatan knows.
“So far he has not said anything about it and, of course, there is no need to tell him we want him here.” he added.
