Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to be revealed by AC Milan in the coming days.

After nearly a week of back and forth with Barcelona and the Swede's agent, Milan have reportedly reached an agreement to buy the 28-year-old from the Catalan giants.

With transfer fees and player wages, the deal is expected to cost Milan $130 million (USD).

Milan CEO and Barcelona president Sandra Rosell have reached an agreement, which is expected to be accepted by Ibra.

If all goes as planned, he will follow Galliani back to Milan this weekend and complete his signing.

So Milan get their man, but are they done?

Milan had announced that if they were unable to get Ibrahimovic, they would make an offer to Manchester City for disgruntled Brazilian striker Robinho.

With the addition of the Swede to Milan's front line, that offer will not happen—yet.

Goal.com is reporting that Milan will bring Robinho to the club in January, when the winter transfer market opens.

Robinho is one of three City players that have been granted permission to leave and are considered expendable.

A move for the Brazilian would mean that one player must potentially be sold by Milan.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar continues to be courted by Tottenham Hotspur and Schalke 04. A deal for the Dutchman is possible.

Another rumor that has arisen yet again is a move to America for Ronaldinho. The Brazilian World Cup snub has been wanted by the Los Angeles Galaxy all summer as a partner for David Beckham and Edson Buddle, and as a potential replacement for wanted man Landon Donovan, who has been linked with Everton, Manchester City, and AC Milan.

Whatever the case, Ibrahimovic is to be a Milan player, and Milan are to be a contender once again.
