Sweden national team striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a new contract at Italian Serie A champions AC Milan thus extending his stay with the club until next summer.

AC Milan have given Ibrahimovic a new contract despite the fact that he’s currently injured. The veteran Sweden international striker will miss the start of the new season as a result of the serious knee injury sustained towards the end of last season. The said injury didn’t stop Ibrahimovic from winning the Italian Serie A title with Milan.

For the new deal signed this week, Ibrahimovic will earn €1m for one year plus add-ons based on performance.
