ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC has agreed a deal with AC Milan despite interest from the Premier League, according to reports.
The ex-Manchester United striker attracted several Prem clubs – including Spurs – but the maverick Swede has opted for a romantic return to Italy.
Having played for MLS side LA Galaxy for two seasons, the 38-year-old has been a free agent since the summer.
The deal with the San Siro giants has been agreed in principle and will initially run until the end of the season, according to the Telegraph.
During his first season in England, Ibrahimovic bagged 28 goals helping United win the Europa League and League Cup.
A serious knee injury eventually saw him move Stateside where he continued to dazzle fans bagging 52 goals from 56 games in all competitions for Galaxy.
