As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Frosinone are set to trigger Arijon Ibrahimović’s release clause. This comes after the Bayern Munich loanee joined the Serie A side in the summer on an initial loan with an option to buy.
However, the 17-year-old has had a fine start to life in Italy, which has led to Frosinone having no doubt about activating his €3.5m buy option clause in 2024. After adapting to the style of play in Serie A, Ibrahimović has burst into life with two goals and an assist in his previous two games.
This has helped maintain Frosinone’s phenomenal start to the season after promotion from Serie B last campaign. The Canaries sit eleventh in the Serie A table, just three points away from the European places, while Ibrahimović’s early goal against Torino put them on course to advance to the next round of the Coppa Italia.
Nevertheless, Bayern do have the ability to buy back their talented youth academy product. In the summer of 2024, the record champions can re-sign Ibrahimović for €11m and in 2025, the option would be €15m.
Therefore, Ibrahimović can continue his development in one of Europe’s top five leagues while Bayern monitor his progress. If the 17-year-old continues his goalscoring prowess, then a return to the Allianz Arena could be just around the corner.
