Since he was very young, Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed that his greatest soccer idol was Ronaldo Nazario. The Brazilian marked history playing for Brazil national team, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter and AC Milan. The Swedish striker tried to copy many things of his idol and is getting to the final of a brilliant professional career.
At the age of 39, the future of Zlatan is still uncertain. Even though he doesn’t talk about retirement, as he is in a perfect physical condition, it is something that could arrive soon as he is 39 years old. AC Milan knows it and that is the reason why they recently decided to sign the attacker Mario Mandzukic.
The contract of Ibrahimovic with the Italian side expires on June 2021 and there are still no clues about a renewal. During his career, the no. 9 played for FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, LA Galaxy, Ajax and Malmo. Now, he could be heading back to Spain after a decade after leaving Barça.
Ronaldo himself, his great idol, is set to make Zlatan a proposal. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the owner and president of Real Valladolid wants him at the Spanish side before his retirement. Zlatan actually gains more than $7 million per season at Milan, something impossible to pay for Valladolid, but Ronaldo will make an effort to get near to that amount of money and sign the forward.
