Report: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave PSG for AC Milan after French Super Cup on Aug. 1
The career of Zlatan Ibrahimovic could easily be described as nomadic — in the 14 years since he left Malmo FF in his native Sweden, the Swedish striker has played for six different clubs in four different countries (Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France).

His 126 official appearances and three seasons played for Paris Saint-Germain, his current club, signify his longest stay at a club during that span. And yet, Ibrahimovic might just be gone from PSG after making appearance No. 127, if a report out of Italy is to be believed.
According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Ibrahimovic has held talks with AC Milan, for whom he previously played from 2010 to 2012, over a transfer back to the Serie A side this summer. According to Pedulla’s report, Ibrahimovic has already negotiated a three-year deal with the Rossoneri that would pay him north of $8 million per year.
PSG appearance No. 127 would reportedly come against Lyon in the French Super Cup on Aug. 1 in Montreal, Canada, after which the 33-year-old would complete his transfer from Paris to Milan.
After finishing 10th in Serie A last season, AC Milan fired Filippo Inzaghi and hired Sinisa Mihajlovic. Upon his arrival at the club, Mihajlovic has spent close to $65 million in transfer fees to rebuild the squad. Strikers Carlos Bacca ($32.5 million) and Luiz Adriano ($9 million) and midfielder Andrea Bertolacci ($22 million) account for more than 99 percent of that total.
