Former Sweden and Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has rejoined AC Milan on a six-month deal, with the option for another season.
The 38-year-old was a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season.
“I’m coming back to a club I hugely respect and to the city of Milan I love. I’ll fight together with my team-mates to change the course of this season. I will do everything to make it happen” Ibrahimovic said.
Seven-time European champions, AC Milan are enduring a miserable season, sitting 11th in Serie A, with 21 points from 17 games, a humiliating 21 points behind leader Inter and are without a major trophy since their 18th Italian title in 2011.
Recently, they lost their 5-0 at Atlanta on 22 December to record their biggest defeat in 21 years.
Ibrahimovic previously spent two seasons at AC Milan, after initially joining them on a season-long loan from Barcelona in August 2010.
The Swede scored 56 goals in 85 appearances for the club and helped it to win the league title in 2011 and the Italian Super Cup the same year.
He left for Paris Saint-Germain a year later having scored 56 times in 85 appearances.
Ibrahimovic has been named the best player in Serie A three times and best foreign player five times having also played for rival clubs Inter Milan and Juventus.
