Reports emerged over the past few days that the striker did not see eye to eye with his Coach and even that Allegri had requested the Swede be sold.

"Milan, via an official statement, deny the reports of incompatibility between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Coach Massimiliano Allegri because it is without any foundation and simply untrue."
