According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan are carefully monitoring Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s rehabilitation, but the Swede may undergo surgery if there won’t be improvements by the end of the month.

Ibrahimovic sustained a knee injury against Juventus on May 9 and was ruled out of Euro 2020.

On Thursday, Sweden coach Janne Andersson admitted that Ibrahimovic’s recovery “is not at an advanced stage,” and La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the Rossoneri are carefully monitoring the striker’s rehabilitation, which, however, is not progressing as expected.

Sweden coach issues Ibrahimovic warning

Milan will assess Ibrahimovic’s physical conditions when his treatment ends at the end of the month.

According to the report from the Italian paper, if things won’t look good at that time, the club could decide to continue the conservative therapy for two more weeks or opt for surgery, which would force the 39-year-old off the pitch for several months.

Ibrahimovic underwent knee surgery four years ago, when he was playing for Manchester United.

However, this case is a little different because the striker hasn’t ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament. On paper, this injury is not as severe as the previous one, but surgery remains a possibility if there won’t be any improvement over the next month.
