According to reports, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make a stunning return to the Sweden national team ahead of UEFA Euro 2020.


Ibrahimovic has had a wonderful season with AC Milan so far, scoring 14 goals and providing an assist in 14 Serie A games, as Milan battle with Inter and Juventus for the Scudetto.


As a result, several reports from Swedish media are claiming that he is set to accept another huge challenge in his career, a return to the national team at the age of 39.


Ibrahimovic announced his retirement from the national team in 2016, and last played in Sweden's final game at UEFA Euro 2016.


Whilst there have been reports about a return in the past, particularly ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, his relationship with Sweden manager Janne Andersson complicated matters, with the manager saying that Ibrahimovic will not be called up to the squad, and later on that year, the forward blamed the Swedish media's hype around his return to be the main reason for his absence.


However, since then his relationship with Andersson has improved, and talks are ongoing between the two ahead of a sensational return to the team.


The news has not been confirmed as of yet, but a report from Fotbolldirekt is claiming that he could be involved for the game against Georgia on March 25.


Ibrahimovic has a stunning record for Sweden, being the nation's all-time top scorer with 62 goals in 116 caps, captaining the side since 2012.
