Zlatan Ibrahimovic is open to the idea of joining Bologna, according to the club’s sporting director, with the striker currently weighing up his future after calling time on his career in Major League Soccer with the LA Galaxy.
Former side AC Milan have been touted as a potential destination for the outspoken centre-forward, but Bologna sporting director Riccardo Bigon is hopeful that Ibrahimovic’s good relationship with head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic will see him make a switch to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
“With just a month and a half to go before the transfer market opens, Ibrahimovic and the coach already have a very strong relationship. They spoke to each other,” Bigon told Sky Italy.
“He expressed an openness to the idea of coming to Bologna, but right now he’s taking time to evaluate all the possibilities for his future after announcing his farewell to MLS.
“We are very fascinated by this situation, but it is clear that we are not in control of it 100 per cent. The choice is exclusively up to the player, we are just waiting. We’re ready and we’re more than positive.”
