Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent is hopeful the AC Milan striker will complete his move to Paris St-Germain soon.

The ambitious French club completed the signing of Brazil defender Thiago Silva on Saturday, and Ibrahimovic could soon by joining him.

Agent Mino Raiola told L'Equipe: "Everyone asks me if it is 90 or 99 per cent done. But these percentage stories don't interest me.

"In my mind, you have a deal, or you don't. There is nothing in between.

"Today, nothing is finalized yet. We will keep working on this deal. I insist on one point: in a contract, every detail is important. But I really hope to reach an agreement with PSG. This weekend is a time for reflection."

Exceptional event

Ibrahimovic's salary demands are a potential stumbling block because of a 75 per cent tax on wages above a million euros per year in France.

"Zlatan will make Ligue 1 more interesting and his departure will make Serie A poorer," Raiola said. "When he goes, there will not be any more big names left in Italy.

"For me Zlatan is the best player in the world, he has a winning spirit. He is a player who, on his own, can light up a stadium. I hope the French fans will appreciate him.

"His arrival at PSG would be an exceptional event. Usually, we only see this kind of deal in England. Now, it is possible in Paris, this fascinating and magnificent capital."
