Zlatan Ibrahimovic has extended his contract with AC Milan by one year, which would keep him playing for the club after he turns 41 years old.
After winning the Serie A championship in early June, Zlatan Ibrahimovic underwent surgery on his left knee to correct the damage and instability caused by an earlier anterior cruciate ligament injury. The procedure took place around the end of May. It is anticipated that the 40-year-old would be sidelined for up to eight months; therefore, it is unlikely that he will be totally fit until approximately the middle of the 2022-23 campaign.
Even though the 40-year-old underwent surgery on his knee at the end of the previous season, which means that he will be out until the new year, he obviously still feels that he can contribute to the group, and he already has a list of records in sight that he could very well beat in the second half of the season. Despite the fact that he will be out until the new year, he clearly still feels that he can contribute to the group.
Ibrahimovic made his comeback to Milan in January 2020, eight years after he had left the club. His presence was the catalyst for Stefano Pioli’s team to begin their ascent to the top of the Italian game.
Joaquin, the captain of Real Betis and a player who will turn 41 on July 21, just extended his contract with the La Liga club for another year after signing it recently.
On his Instagram page, Ibrahimovic provided a response to the news by writing, “The never-ending Zlatan #ReadyToLeaveAMark.”
