Belgian international Gabi Mudingayi joined Inter on loan from Bologna in July after apparently having a decision to make between them and Milan. According to Mudingayi, the decision was made easy by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had not yet been sold to PSG when the midfielder made his decision.

From Football Italia:

The former Bologna midfielder opted to join Inter and revealed to Belgian VoetbalNieuws why he turned down offers from the other side of San Siro.

"I would never have gone to Milan, as I would not have felt at ease there," said Mudingayi.

"When I was sold, Ibrahimovic was still playing for the Rossoneri and I have a terrible relationship with him.

"One time he even spat at me after a tackle."

That's it? On the scale of Zlatan interactions (1 being a slap in the face and 10 being the instantaneous destruction of the universe), catching a bit of Ibra drool is roughly equivalent to getting a back rub. And as Stephan El Shaarawy has already pointed out, no one feels at ease with Zlatan in the team. No one. But would you rather win titles with him or not develop a nervous twitch without him?
