Once Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the MLS, clubs were invariably going to chase him. After United realized the kind of foolishness it must have taken them to sell Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, the possibility of bringing back Ibra to Old Trafford was flashed across the board room.
The Swede has however ruled out any chance of returning to the English Premier League, a league he once said people told him he was too old to play in but came to England anyway and ended up making the league look old.
AC Milan haven been a former club of the Swede happens to be among the favorites to welcome him back to Italy.
Piatek gave them and just about every other club salivating to sign him at the time, false hope and for all the heroics of last season, the striker has failed miserably in reproducing what would have made AC Milan not to consider bringing back Ibrahimovic to the San Siro.
Piatek got signed during last year’s January transfer window. One year later, his team is looking to signing a 35-year-old to teach or remind him how to constantly find the back of the net.
Milan are even lucky if they land Ibra at all. The Swede could very well ask any team to sign him up over the phone and they had obliged but in choosing to go back to Italy, it seems there is some sort of business he looks bent on finishing.
After playing for Juventus, Inter and AC Milan, most believe it is time for him to try out other superpowers especially those that sprang up after he left Italy.
Napoli has been reported to be one of the major teams battling tooth and nail to make sure they have a fire sale for the Swede’s jersey should he ever sign for them.
