AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has claimed the club are selling striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Thiago Silva to Paris St Germain.

The pair are reported to have joined the ambitious Ligue 1 outfit for a combined €65 million.

"Yes, I sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to PSG," Berlusconi was quoted as saying tonight on www.gazzetta.it.

"We will save €150 million in two years

Ibrahimovic, who was Serie A's top scorer last season, netting 28 goals as Milan finished runners-up to Juventus, was tied to the Rossoneri for another three seasons.

The 30-year-old spent two seasons at Milan, the first on loan from Barcelona before signing on a permanent deal the following summer.

PSG sporting director Leonardo revealed earlier today he was due to meet the striker's agent.

The former Milan coach, who met the Sweden captain in his homeland yesterday, told Gazzetta dello Sport: "The negotiation is ongoing and we have spoken in Sweden.

"At this time everything is possible because the transfer market is like this, it's always open.

"We will soon meet with (Ibrahimovic's agent) Mino Raiola and we will see what happens.

"But a deal can only be considered completed once it is done."

Thiago Silva has been strongly linked with a move to the French capital throughout the summer, but he appeared to have committed his future to Milan when, after the Italian giants turned down a reported £36.35m bid from PSG for the player, he signed a new lucrative contract to keep him at the San Siro until June 2017.
