Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Yet to agree personal terms with Paris St Germain
The agent of AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists his client's proposed transfer to Paris St Germain is far from complete.
Reports In France and Italy suggested a sale would go through on Friday after Milan president Silvio Berlusconi claimed a deal had been done for Ibrahimovic and Brazil defender Thiago Silva.
But while Milan may have accepted PSG's offer, the issue of personal terms with the two players involved remains to be addressed.
And Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola has indicated that this could be a problem if the Ligue 1 club are not prepared to reward the 30-year-old forward with the wages he feels he deserves.
"Is everything done with PSG? In Italy you invent things," Raiola told sportmediaset.it.
"We are far away or, to put it better, we are as close (to agreeing terms) as America and China.
"Today I will meet (PSG sporting director) Leonardo but I have no great desire to do it.
"PSG have to convince themselves that with Zlatan they are acquiring the best."
Ibrahimovic was Serie A's top scorer last season, netting 28 goals as the Rossoneri finished runners-up to Juventus.
According to reports in Italy, PSG have offered a four-year deal matching Ibrahimovic's salary at the San Siro but Raiola is seeking a salary worth as much as €15million (c.£12m) per season.
