Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ‘not an option’ for the club, says Bologna director Riccardo Bigon, regardless of his relationship with Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Tempted by the chance to work at Stadio Dall’Ara with coach Mihajlovic, negotiations with Ibra had been taking place before he chose Milan as a free agent in January.
Now that there are several rumors the Swede is able to walk away from the Rossoneri, it has resurrected the concept of Bologna and another Serie A story.
“I understand the media interest in making this a story, as he is such an important name at the top level, but Ibrahimovic is not a possibility,” Bologna director of sport Bigon told RAI Radio 1.
“We are no longer in contact. He had spoken to Mihajlovic in Winter, then made his choices and from then we haven’t taken the situation into consideration.”
Ibrahimovic co-owns a Swedish club named Hammarby, the most likely outcome for him will be to end his career at his club.
In Sweden, during the lockdown, he was training with the squad for the time.
