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.

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.

Asked about Ibrahimovic’s future prior to the midweek clash, Massara told Sky Sport Italia: “We are talking to Mino Raiola and trying to do it behind the scenes, even if it’s difficult to keep anything from the media nowadays.

“There are issues that we will evaluate together, including Ibra’s spirit and desire to continue this wonderful adventure, which has been so positive in the second half of the season.

“We are all happy, first and foremost Ibra, that he’s been able to prove his value to Milan all over again.”

Ibrahimovic and Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma are both represented by outspoken agent Mino Raiola.

Donnarumma, who made his debut as a 16-year-old in 2015-16, is contracted to the Rossoneri until 2021.

The Italy international – previously linked to the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Real Madrid and United – is reportedly ready to extend his San Siro stay.

On Donnarumma, who saved a penalty against Sampdoria, Massara said: “That is a different situation, but we are eager and confident that we can resolve both of them positively. Donnarumma has a contract and we’d like a longer one to create a stronger future together.

“Ibra, on the other hand, is out of contract this summer and so these are very different discussions.”
