Official: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return to AC Milan on six-month deal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to take his talents back to Serie A.

Traditional powers AC Milan on Friday announced they had signed the former LA Galaxy forward to a six-month contract with an option for a one-year extension.

The move, previously reported by Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio, reunites Ibrahimovic with the club he played for from 2010-2012. The legendary 38-year-old striker had been without a club since it was announced he was leaving the Galaxy back in November.

Ibrahimovic is getting up there in years, but during his time in MLS, he showed he's still very much capable of putting the ball in the back of the net. The Galaxy had their struggles on the pitch during Ibrahimovic's time in the league, missing the playoffs in 2018 and getting bounced by rivals LAFC in last year's Western Conference Semifinals, but he still racked up an eye-popping 52 goals in 56 MLS games, many of them of his vintage, highlight-reel variety.

Farewell, Zlatan. We'll always have this:
