​Bologna are in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over a potential deal with the club, despite Milan's extended discussions with the former PSG star. 

Ibrahimovic has been without a club since leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the MLS season, and has since indicated that ​he will return to Italy in his next move.

Bologna's sporting director Riccardo Bigon has now claimed that his club are currently negotiating with Ibrahimovic, with a decision on his future imminent.


Speaking to Sky Sports (as quoted by ​A Bola) Bigon said: "Negotiations are taking place directly between Mihajlovic and Ibrahimovic. We know he will make a decision in December and we are very happy to be in negotiations with him right now, but we are still waiting to see what will happen. Ibrahimovic is a coveted player."

Bigon also insisted that a potential move to Stadio Renato Dall'Ara has nothing to do with money - with many expecting Ibrahimovic's next, and possibly final, deal to be incredibly lucrative.

"We live in a world where everyone thinks it is very easy to solve situations with money, but we have already made a huge investment during the summer," said Bigon. "The coming Ibrahimovic will be a completely different situation."

However, former club Milan are still favourites to capture Ibrahimovic's signature despite talks having stalled recently.

According to ​Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan have offered the 38-year-old €3m until the end of this season, with an extra €6m for next campaign. Ibrahimovic seemingly wants an 18-month contract, but Milan will look to offer him a second-year deal based on what the Italian giants achieve, such as Champions League qualification.

With ​Napoli also outsiders for a potential transfer, Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola has stuck his oar in, as ever.

As quoted by ​Gazzetta, Raiola said: "How will it end? I will not unbalance myself, we will see what will happen. Certainly, if he came back, Serie A would increase the appeal, both on a technical and television level. How many countries would turn on the TV every weekend?"

He added: "Which of the three teams will you choose? Who knows, we are free men. I do not exclude anything, but it is very difficult. Ibra is still very well."
