SunSport reported last month how the Serie A side were ready to hand the Swedish striker a £104,000-a-week contract at the San Siro.
And now it has been claimed that he will put pen to paper on a new deal this week once he returns from his break in Saint-Tropez.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ibrahimovic will sign a contract at the club that will last until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
It has been claimed that Ibrahimovic’s signature is all that is needed for the announcement to become official.
After weeks of negotiations, it is believed that news of his stay will be confirmed later this week.
Gazzetta dello Sport reported in July that Ibrahimovic could sign a one-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.
