Ibrahimovic: I will stay at Milan if Maldini wants me to
Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 39, was asked about his future beyond 2020-21.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic said he is open to extending his Milan contract if technical director Paolo Maldini "wants".
Ibrahimovic has been a revelation since returning to Milan for a second spell in January last year, the evergreen 39-year-old spearheading the club's Scudetto charge this term.
The former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star – out of contract at season's end – has scored 14 Serie A goals to help Milan up to second position, three points adrift of city rivals Inter.

Asked about his future, Ibrahimovic told RAI's Che Tempo Che Fa via RAI: "I don't know, let's see. If Paolo wants, I am up for it.
"The season is still long, there are many games left. We always play to win, even if they can play once a week."
Nursing an injury, Ibrahimovic has been sidelined as he participated in the Sanremo music festival during the week.
Ibrahimovic was in attendance for Milan's 2-0 victory at Hellas Verona on Sunday.
"I am Zlatan, I feel the responsibility and I feel like a leader. This team is the only one that made me feel thrilled. I want to teach, I want to be a guide," he added.
"When I say something, they others are like: 'Ok, we are doing it'. Today I wanted to be in Verona, I felt it inside.
"When I spend a day without them is like staying without my sons."
