Despite Ibrahimovic's former AC Milan team-mate Thiago Silva making the move to Paris Saint-Germain yesterday [Sunday], the striker's transfer in the same direction is still being negotiated between the parties involved. As a result of the drawn-out talks, Ibrahimovic was rumoured to have lost interest in a potential move to Ligue 1.
However, his agent, Mino Raiola rubbished such speculation by indicating that the on-going discussions were an indication that the Swede was still keen on the move.
"If Zlatan had a problem with the idea of playing in France, I would not have come to Paris for three days," the representative stated.
"I like [PSG sporting director] Leonardo a lot, he is a great person who is doing a very interesting job, but not to the point of coming to his office for three days just to have coffee."
The football agent also believes Ibrahimovic would be a high quality addition to the French league, and that the purchase of the Rossoneri's top scorer is just the one of the building blocks to PSG's vision.
"Zlatan will make Ligue 1 more interesting and his departure will make Serie A poorer. When he is gone, there will not be any big players in Italian football left. For me, Zlatan is the best player in the world. He has the soul of a winner. He is a player who, on his own, can make a stadium sparkle," Raiola said.
"He is powerful and elegant, and has wonderful technique. I hope the French fans will enjoy watching him play. His arrival at PSG would be an exceptional event. Usually, we only see that kind of deals in England. Now, it is possible in Paris, this fascinating and magnificent capital. Besides the city, we are really interested in PSG's project. What is happening ar the club is exciting."
However, Ibrahimovic's former Juventus team-mate Jonathan Zebina was not as optimistic about the striker's move to PSG.
"He's looking for a club where he can win the Champions League, but Paris Saint-Germain winning the Champions League is not something that will happen in the near future if you ask me," the Frenchman said to RMC.
"We've all seen how long it took for Chelsea to win it. Zlatan could be disappointed by PSG."
Ibrahimovic has won domestic league titles with Ajax Amsterdam, Inter Milan, Barcelona, and Milan, but has yet to taste Champions League success.
