There has long been speculation about the future of superstar Ibrahimovic. Now a decision has been made – and the new contract has a special feature.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will apparently stay with AC Milan next season despite his serious injury.

Both parties have agreed on a contract extension for another year until 2023. Ibrahimovic would thus decide against ending his career, contrary to all speculation.

In exchange for staying, however, the experienced striker is to forgo a fixed salary, and his income will depend on the number of appearances, according to the report. Finally, Ibrahimovic is expected to be unavailable to the Rossoneri this calendar year after undergoing surgery in May.

The Swedish superstar had recently revealed that he had been playing on painkillers for months with a cruciate ligament injury.

However, these enabled the 40-year-old to make good on his championship promise. Milan won the Scudetto for the first time in eleven years, with Ibrahimovic contributing eight goals.
