Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given his firmest indication yet that he will stay on with Milan for the 2020-21 season. 

The 38-year-old scored 11 times in 20 matches for the Rossoneri last season after returning to the club on a short-team deal in January. 

That contract expired at the end of 2019-20 but Milan have been working hard to keep Ibrahimovic at San Siro, with technical director Paolo Maldini making it a priority. 

Agent Mino Raiola denied on Wednesday that fresh terms had been agreed, but the former Sweden international appeared to confirm on Friday that a new deal has been either signed or is a formality. 

He wrote on Twitter, alongside a picture of himself in Milan kit: "Like I said I'm just warming up @acmilan" 

The picture was doctored to indicate Ibrahimovic will wear the number 11 shirt in the new season, rather than the 21 he took on joining the Serie A giants.
