AC Milan confirmed on Sunday that the 38-year-old had returned to the club to put pen to paper on a new one-year deal.

"Finally, everything is sorted out and I could come back to where I feel at home," Ibrahimovic told the Rossoneri's official website.

"Now, it's time to work hard and push on. We need to work, as I have always said, I'm not here to be a mascot.

"I'm here to get results and help the team, the coach and the club to get AC Milan back to where it belongs.

"We did very well over the last six months but we didn't win anything. This season, I'm here from the start, so we need to continue the good we've done, working hard and making sacrifices to achieve our objectives."

The Swede has signed a contract that will see him earn €7 million (R138 million) in the next year, according to Italian journalist Palmeri Tancredi.

Ibrahimovic thus becomes the joint-seventh highest-paid star in Serie A, although Cristiano Ronaldo earns more than four times as much – you can see all of Italy's top earners in the gallery above!
