The Swedish striker has given his account of how things transpired in his new hard-hitting book, Adrenaline. The 40-year-old admits that he made reference to an old rumour that Lukaku's mother used voodoo on him to convince him to leave Everton in 2017 and join Manchester United.

The Daily Star reports that Ibrahimovic wondered whether Lukaku had cast some sort of black magic on him, given that he suffered a series of misfortunes after their argument. He was confined to long spells on the injury table.

He goes on to narrate that they almost got into a full-scale war during halftime. The former Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona striker insists that he is not ready to forgive the Belgian anytime soon. He also details in the book that he had promised to break every bone in Lukaku's body.

Lukaku had apparently fired back and told Ibrahimovic that he would put three bullets in his head.

With Lukaku returning to Inter Milan after a failed season at Chelsea, it presents an opportunity for the duo to run into each other again. But Ibrahimovic is currently out with an anterior cruciate ligament injury and has refused to call it quits yet on his long career.

The feud between the two giant strikers is a case of friends turned enemies, given that they were once teammates at Manchester United.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic extended his AC Milan contract by one year

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would continue his fairytale adventure with AC Milan after the striker signed a new one-year deal with the Serie A champions.

The 40-year-old forward helped the Rossoneri to their first Scudetto in over a decade last season as AC Milan beat city rivals Inter Milan to the Serie A title.

The Serie A champions have now offered to keep the veteran forward for another season, but Ibrahimovic will take a significant pay cut to remain with the club.
