Ibrahimovic left AC Milan against his will, Galliani reveals

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted Zlatan Imbrahimovic was against leaving the outfit this summer, and only moved to Paris Saint-Germain after the boss went against his original decision not to take any bids for the player.

Galliani met with the Swedish international along with his agent Mino Raiola at the end of the 2011-12 term to decide the striker’s future with the Rossoneri and it is now believed they told the boss that he wanted to continue at Milan.

Despite Galliani promising to hold on to the hitman, PSG put in a bid this summer and since accepting the move Ibrahimovic has severed any links with Galliani.

Speaking to France Football, Galliani admitted, “Ibrahimovic really wanted to stay at Milan.

“I promised him that he would not be sold when he came to meet me accompanied by Mino Raiola at the end of last season. However, the board then had a number of meetings and we opted to sell him after all.

“He doesn’t speak to me anymore since he has left Milan for Paris. I can’t blame him, though, as I broke my promise.”

Since his move to PSG, Ibrahimovic has netted five goals in four Ligue 1 matches.
