Pay talks delay Ibra's PSG move

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in talks with Paris St Germain over a possible move to the Parc des Princes this summer

“We continue to hold talks with Zlatan,” the Ligue 1 giants’ sporting director Leonardo told Gazzetta dello Sport. 

AC Milan have accepted PSG’s reported offer of 65million euros (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, whowas 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 the Swede 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 wants to sign a three-year deal worth 15million (£11.7million) euros per season. Ibrahimovic is tied to the Rossoneri until June 2015.
