AC MILAN star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has NOT ruptured his anterior crucial ligament.
But the Swedish striker, who limped out of his team's recent win against Juventus, WILL miss Euro 2020.
Sweden's official Twitter account has confirmed the 39-year-old has damaged his ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
Although the ligament is not broken, he will not be fit enough to play at this summer's tournament.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star announced his intention to play at Euro 2020 in March.
He initially retired from international duty after Euro 2016, missing Sweden's run to the World Cup quarter-finals in 2018.
Ibrahimovic made his international return two months ago, starting in the 1-0 home win against Georgia.
He was initially expected to be part of Sweden's 26-man squad for the Euros but will now focus on getting himself fit for the start of next season.
Ibrahimovic is currently being investigated by Uefa for allegedly being financially interested in a betting company and could be banned from playing if found guilty.

The Swede has been in excellent form this season, scoring 15 goals in 19 Serie A appearances for Milan.
His impressive performances have seen him rewarded with a new one-year deal at the San Siro, meaning he is set to play top flight football at the age of 40.
Milan are also on course to qualify for next season's Champions League as they sit third in Serie A with two games to go.
And Ibrahimovic isn't the only veteran to sign a new one-year deal at a big European club, with his ex-teammate Edinson Cavani agreeing an extension at Manchester United.
Another one of the Swede's former colleagues – ex-LA Galaxy star Michael Ciani – has claimed Ibrahimovic hated the Uruguayan striker during their PSG days.
