Last season, the Sweden striker, who turns 41 in October, scored eight league goals as Milan defeated rivals Inter to win the Serie A title.

In May, he underwent knee surgery and was expected to be out of commission for eight months.

At the end of the season, Ibrahimovic admitted that he had “barely slept for six months due to the pain.”

The former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain striker returned to AC Milan in 2020, where he helped them win their first league title in 11 years.

Ibrahimovic was also a Milan player when the club last won the Scudetto, joining on loan from Barcelona and scoring 14 league goals in 29 appearances to lead the club to the title in 2011.

He signed a permanent contract but left for Paris St-Germain at the end of the 2011-12 season.

With 62 goals in 121 international appearances, Sweden’s all-time leading scorer is not the only outfielder in his 40s in Europe’s top leagues.

Real Betis captain Joaquin, who turns 41 on July 21, recently signed a one-year contract with the La Liga club.
