The club confirmed the news in a tweet on Friday:

AC Milan said the deal is through the end of the season, with an option to extend for next season.

Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio reported the news Thursday morning, while MLS commissioner Don Garber first revealed AC Milan was interested in signing Ibrahimovic during MLS Cup weekend in November.

The 38-year-old Swedish star spent two seasons at Milan, first as a loanee in 2010-11 and then as a full signing in 2011-12. He scored 56 goals in 85 appearances and helped Milan win the 2011 Serie A title, the last not won by Juventus.

Ibrahimovic scored 53 goals in 58 appearances for the Galaxy, and while MLS isn’t on the level of Serie A, Milan needs all the help it can get. The once giants of Italy are languishing in 11th place, 14 points off the Champions League spots, and have scored a paltry 16 goals in 17 league matches.
