Italian international wants Ibrahimovic to return to San Siro.
AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has called on the club to bring in reinforcements for next season if they are to conquer Europe.
The Rossoneri are expected to wrap up a deal for Sampdoria midfielder Andrea Poli in the forthcoming days, but vice-president Adriano Galliani has made it clear that players must first leave before they can buy this summer.
As a result, the Serie A giants are in a tricky predicament as they look to improve the squad ahead of next season, with speculation suggesting that both Robinho and Kevin-Prince Boateng are at risk of being sacrificed.
The Brazilian is expected to return to Santos provided the clubs can come to an agreement over his price-tag, while Boateng is a little less certain of an exit although Milan are said to want to bring in both Keisuke Honda and Adem Ljajic, thus suggesting the Ghana international could leave.
Nevertheless, that isn’t where Balotelli thinks the club should be focusing their attention, but instead bringing in former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in order for them to challenge in Europe.
“We are strong, but to compete at a European level we need reinforcements,” he told Sport Mediaset as reported by football-italia.net.
“I would like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I told Tevez to come to Milan, but he obviously did not listen.”
The 22-year-old also revealed his happiness over the club’s decision to keep faith in team-mate Stephan El Shaarawy, and that the youngster would continue to play alongside him.
The former Manchester City striker also paid tribute to the club, stating that Milan are a team he “has in his heart” and praised the fans.
The Italian international will hope to build on his first six months at the club, and help achieve great things next season as they continue to rebuild the squad with a more youthful presence.
