Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Swedish striker is too costly for AC Milan

The Swedish striker spent two seasons with the Rossoneri between 2010 and 2012, helping them to the Serie A title during his debut campaign.

He was offloaded to ambitious French outfit Paris St Germain last summer, with the Ligue 1 side one of a few sides who could afford the fee he demands and the salary he earns.

It is the financial package required to land Ibrahimovic which Galliani feels would prevent Milan from re-signing the 31-year-old.

He said: "A return for Ibrahimovic does not seem possible as his salary demands are too high.

"He is a professional. We were sad to sell him but he earns the kind of money that is not compatible with our finances.

"Would I re-sign him or Thiago Silva? The team who concedes fewer goals wins the Scudetto."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
