Silvio Berlusconi believes it is impossible for the Rossoneri to re-sign the star striker, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire in the summer
Milan president Silvio Berlusconi believes the club have no chance of re-signing Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Sweden international is expected to leave the Ligue 1 champions at the end of the season when his current contract expires.
Ibrahimovic has been linked with clubs from England, United States, Qatar and China, while Milan are also believed to be keen on bringing him back to San Siro having been unsuccessful in an attempt last year.
The 34-year-old enjoyed a fruitful spell with Milan between 2010 and 2012, but a return now seems out of the question after Berlusconi admitted Milan can't pay what other clubs are willing to for Ibrahimovic's services.

"It is impossible to bring back Ibrahimovic," Berlusconi told Tele Radio Stereo.
"Zlatan is receiving offers from China and the UAE that we simply cannot match."
Milan have also been linked with a surprise move for Francesco Totti, whose future at Roma is in doubt following a contract dispute, but Berlusconi has dismissed suggestions they could lure the 39-year-old away from his current club.
"Totti is impossible, too," he added. "You just don't buy club legends like him.
"I hope that Totti can reach an agreement with Roma to stay put after his active career."
