The club are currently trying to extend the contract of some of their key players, including Ibrahimovic and goalkeeper Donnarumma, whose deals expire at the end of the current season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he will decide on his future towards the end of the season and has declared AC Milan teammate Gianluigi Donnarumma as the best goalkeeper in the world.

The duo have been key parts of the Rossoneri’s squad which has taken Serie A by storm this season, topping the table with 40 points from 17 games putting them three points clear of city rivals Inter.

Ibrahimovic’s return to Milan at the start of 2020 triggered something in the side as they have gone on a tremendous run of form, with the 39-year-old earning plenty of praise for his performances.

Zlatan says he will decide his future towards the end of the campaign, while heaping praise on the Italian goalkeeper.

“He is the best goalkeeper in the world, but I never tell him. He must continue to have ambition, but it’s not normal that he’s never played in the Champions League,” Ibrahimovic told Il Corriere dello Sport, via Football Italia.

“I’ll continue playing as long as I feel well. Then we’ll see, we’ll talk about my contract. I didn’t want to put myself in a trap with no way out, that’s why I initially signed a six-month contract which I renewed afterwards. Others made different choices.”

Donnarumma has played over 225 times for Milan since making his debut for the club aged just 16 in 2015.

He is the Italy number one, taking over from the legendary Gianluigi Buffon but at the age of just 21 years old, he is yet to appear in the Champions League.

He has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in the summer on a free transfer, but with Milan’s current performance there is growing confidence that they could convince him to re-sign.

Ibrahimovic is currently Milan’s top goalscorer this season with ten goals, despite missing a portion of the season following a positive COVID-19 test and a knee injury that kept him out for a month.

Shocking: Ibrahimovic tests positive for Coronavirus

In a statement on the official website, Milan have revealed that Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID-19 following a second round of swab tests ahead of tonight’s UEL qualifier against Bodø/Glimt.


The Club has informed the relevant authorities and the player has been promptly placed in quarantine at home. All other team members and staff have tested negative.

As a result, it is expected that young striker Lorenzo Colombo will lead the line for the Rossoneri against the high-flying Norwegian side, with Pioli unable to call upon the suspended Ante Rebic or Rafael Leao, who is not yet back at fitness after recovering from COVID himself.

Meanwhile, Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio, Leo Duarte and Andrea Conti are all also out, meaning Pioli has a selection nightmare on his hands if a defender gets injured.
