Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted that he has had more offers now than when he was younger.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he has been in contact with the AC Milan representatives soon after he decided to quit LA Galaxy.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently arrived in Milan to complete the medical procedures ahead of making his return to his former club. It was also confirmed that AC Milan have assigned the number 21 to the striker.

Talking about his move, the Swede said that he did not have to think much to make up his mind to fly back to Italy.

“After my last match with Galaxy, [Paolo] Maldini called me. We spoke about how I was and about normal things,” Ibrahimovic told as per ESPN.

“At 38, I had more requests than at 28.

“I was looking for the adrenaline inside of me, to ensure I get the best out of myself. I spoke to [Zvonimir] Boban a lot, then a month went by and after [the 5-0 defeat to] Atalanta, there were a lot of phone calls,” the 38-year old continued.

“I wasn’t a difficult decision. In 2012, I left without my say-so, but that was the situation and I couldn’t do anything about it.”
