Italian giants AC Milan are trying to convince Paris Saint-Germain star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return to the San Siro in 2016, according to reports from Corriere dello Sport.

The Swedish striker left Milan for the French champions in 2012 and has had a huge impact in the revival of the club, with the 34-year old scoring at least 30 goals in each of his first three seasons in the French capital.

However, Zlatan's advanced age and his huge salary (€9 million per season) make the negotiations over his contract renewal really complicated. It is still left to be seen if Zlatan would agree to sign for his former employers, as he has also been heavily linked with a move to MLS.

According to reports, Milan CEO Adriano Galliani is ready to take advantage of the situation of the former Ajax man by using his good rapport with Ibrahimovic's agent, Mino Raiola, and the player himself.

Ibrahimovic has also recently stated - as quoted by the Daily Mail - that: "Serie A is the best league in the world," and he has never hidden his affection for Italy. However, in order for the deal to go through, the Swede needs to accept a significant wage cut, as Milan are not ready to offer more than €6 milion per year, which would still make him the highest paid Serie A player.

Such a move would be fantastic news for the Rossoneri, as Liverpool loanee Mario Balotelli was struck by a groin injury and summer signing Luiz Adriano has been struggling for form recently. This leaves Carlos Bacca as the only consistent goalscoring threat in Sinisa Mihajlovic's squad, as the Colombian has netted six Serie A goals in 12 outings so far.

Milan will need Bacca to be on his best, as they are aiming for a top three finish for the first time since 2012. The Rossoneri invested heavily during the summer and they can't afford to miss on the Champions League for a third year in a row.

It is believed that Sinisa Mihajlovic is urging Galliani to push for the signature of Ibrahimovic, as the Serbian considers a Bacca-Zlatan partnership to be the perfect duo to put Milan back on the European football map again.

Ibrahimovic demonstrated his evergreen ability yet again during the internation break, as he scored three goals over the two play-off legs for his country against Denmark and almost single-handedly assured Sweden's qualification to Euro 2016.
