Zlatan Ibrahimovic: AC Milan forward could miss Manchester United Europa League last-16 clash through injury

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could miss out on the chance to face former club Manchester United because of a thigh injury, according to Sky in Italy.

Ibrahimovic underwent a scan on Monday morning after suffering the injury during AC Milan’s 2-1 win over Roma on Sunday and will not be re-evaluated for another 10 days.

He will miss Serie A matches against Udinese and Verona, which come before Milan’s trip to Old Trafford for the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash on March 11. The second leg is seven days later.

Hakan Calhanoglu could be back in time for the trip to Manchester but is also set to miss out against Udinese and Verona, struggling with a thigh injury as well.

But one piece of good news for Stefano Pioli surrounds Ante Rebic, who has been cleared of any significant hip problem after limping off against Roma.
