A major obstacle on the road is Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s high wages, which Juventus in the current situation can not afford to pay. Different solutions are discussed, as higher bonus, but it seems clear that Zlatan have to cut down in pay to make the transfer a reality.

Another one that wants to go back to Italy is the Argentine Ezequiel Lavezzi. The striker was first signed in PSG where over 23 million ended up in Naples. Unfortunately for the French, Ezequiel Lavezzi does not love the country so much. The agent Alejandro Mazzoni recently confirmed that an Italy move may be appropriate and according to Corriere dello Sport, Milan is very interested in signing Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Another one that is hesitant about the future is Ancelotti.

The house is 836 square meters, has three large lounges, private TV room, five bedrooms, Italian kitchen and a SPA. The garage has space for four cars. It would be hard for Zlatan and Helena to get back the money they spent at a potential sale.
– Though it’s my belief it will be sold for more than he bought it for, says realtor Jan Lundqvist who is entrusted to sell the super villa.

The broker has personally met Zlatan before the sale and have clear rules of conduct at work. So for example, he is not allowed to show interior photos of the house out of respect for both current and future owners. The speculators who express a serious interest in the property will also have their finances audited by the broker.

The broker has through his contacts in both France and Italy put out hooks in many places. Realtor Jan Lundqvist can not say today when a possible deal can be concluded.
– These kinds of objects are living their own lives. Sellers can afford to wait for the right buyer, and therefore it is impossible to say how long a sale will take.
