However, Bologna director Walter Sabatini claims the 38-year-old wants to join them due to his relationship Sinisa Mihajlovic.

"Ibrahimovic wants to join us because of his rapport with Sinisa," the director told TuttoMercatoWeb, according to Football Italia.

"It's not impossible. It can be done, but if it is, it'll be because of the affection that bonds them together.

"Ibra would like to help Mihajlovic and I can say we’ll do everything to make this madness happen."
