Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reportedly preparing to leave AC Milan at the end of the season, drawing an end to his remarkable playing career as he embarks on managerial pursuits.
The Swede rejoined Milan in January after leaving the club in 2012, but his second spell with the Italian giants is set to last only a matter of months.
It is understood the 38-year-old is furious about the sacking of former Chief Football Officer Zvonimir Boban, who was instrumental in bringing Ibrahimovic back to San Siro.
Italian outlet SportMediaset report that Ibrahimovic will opt against staying another year with Milan in favour of starting his managerial career.
The Rossoneri have struggled this season and find themselves seventh in Serie A, outside the European places.
Ibrahimovic was recruited in the January transfer window and has contributed three goals and one assist in eight league appearances, and a further goal the Coppa Italia.
