It wasn't the best final stretch of the season for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The experienced forward suffered an injury to his left knee in early May, Milan began to falter at the top of Serie A and Inter finally conquered the Scudetto. Thinking about next season and with the intact dream of lifting a title again in Italy, the Swede met with the leaders, put pressure on the issue of reinforcements and slipped the name of an Argentine.

Ibrahimovic, who will also miss the European Championship with his team due to constant physical ailments, communicated with the Rossonera board of directors and, according to the Corriere dello Sport media, requested the incorporation of Mauro Icardi, currently at Paris Saint-Germain and with a past in the classic rival Nerazzurri.

Consulted by Icardi on the Striscia la Notizia program, the 39-year-old striker did not deny having mentioned him to nurture Milan's offense and said: "I'm in favor of any player arriving who can help us, but the club decides in the end."

The truth is that the attacker from Rosario made it clear days ago that he is very well in Paris, he has the desire to fulfill his contract and that the rumors about his future away from PSG are “fake news”. However, Mauricio Pochettino relegated him a bit in the consideration of him and the local fans fell hard on him after the team's farewell in the Champions League semi-finals.

Mauro Icardi's season numbers at PSG

Beyond the criticism of the Parisian fans, the numbers of Icardi, who also had experience in the Italian championship with Sampdoria, this season are positive: he played 28 games and scored 13 goals. Will he return to the capital?
