Zlatan Ibrahimovic tells Mario Balotelli to join AC Milan.
The Swedish striker joined the Italian giants from Barcelona on a season-long loan over the Summer and has now revealed that the young Italian tried to pursuade him to join him at Manchester City so that they could play together.
But Ibrahimovic insists that the only way the two players will join forces again is if Balotelli comes back to Serie A.
He said: “During the negotiations with AC Milan , he often called me to tell me to come to City,. But I only had the Rossoneri in my mind. Sure, I’d love to play with Balotelli. But he must come where I play, that is AC Milan , not the other way around.”
“Should he call me? No, he should call [AC Milan Vice-President Adriano] Galliani and come to an agreement with him.”
And Balotelli admitted that it is his dream to play with the Swede once more, regardless of where and when that happens.
The City striker said: “One day I will return and play with Ibrahimovic. I don’t know in which shirt it will be, but I know it will happen.”
