Milan pair of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva could soon be joining PSG
Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has confirmed talks are ongoing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent about a switch from Milan.
Earlier reports had already revealed that the 30-year-old's agent Mino Raiola had been given permission to negotiate with PSG following a meeting with his client in Sweden.
The deal is believed to be a double swoop from the big-spending French club as they hope to secure the signatures of Ibrahimovic and Brazilian defender Thiago Silva from the Rossoneri.
And Leonardo has confirmed that a meeting will be held with Raiola on Thursday with a view to a 65 million euro (£51million) transfer for the pair.
"Negotiation is underway and we have spoken with AC Milan in Sweden," the former Milan coach told gazzetta.it.
"At the moment everything is possible because this is the market and it is always open.
"We will soon meet with Raiola and then we will see what can happen. The deals can only be considered done, when they are in fact done."
If the talks go smoothly a deal could be concluded by Friday.
