Ibrahimovic PSG move delayed but negotiations continue
Monday 16 July 2012
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's move to Paris St Germain will not be completed today, according to club sporting director Leonardo.
The AC Milan striker is in talks with the Ligue 1 giants over a possible move to the Parc des Princes this summer.
"We continue to hold talks with Zlatan," Leonardo told Gazzetta dello Sport. "The negotiations are going forward but I can assure you that today we have no meetings scheduled."
AC Milan have accepted PSG's reported offer of €65 million (just over £51million) for Ibrahimovic and Brazil defender Thiago Silva.
Silva already completed his transfer to PSG at the weekend and the French giants expect to soon land Ibrahimovic.
The Sweden international was Serie A's top scorer last season, netting 28 goals as the Rossoneri finished runners-up to Juventus.
Reports in Italy claim PSG have offered Ibrahimovic a four-year deal that would see him earn nine million euros per season - the same figure he currently gets as the highest paid player at Milan.
However, the 30-year-old allegedly wants to sign a three-year deal worth €15million (£11.7million) per season.
Ibrahimovic is tied to the Rossoneri until June 2015.
