Paris Saint-German could be on the verge of a sensational double transfer swoop.
Reports in the Italian media suggest that the Ligue 1 side have had a 60 million euros bid for Milan pair Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva accepted.
Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has been planning to offload the pair for months to wipe out a significant chunk of the club’s mounting debts, as well as remove two hefty salaries from the wage bill.
Ibrahimovic earns a reported 12 million euros a year, while Thiago Silva is paid an annual six million euros plus bonuses at San Siro.
Galliani’s plan was initially undermined by the Berlusconi family, with owner Silvio Berlusconi blocking the proposed sale of Silva to PSG for 46m euros at the last minute before subsequently handing the Brazilian a lucrative new contract.
However, Galliani has been given the green light to cash in on Milan’s two most valuable assets, meaning it will now be up to the players involved to decide if they want to move to the French capital.
Swedish captain Ibrahimovic, 30, has a contract at Milan until 2015 and has expressed an interest in a move to the French capital.
But Brazil international defender Silva is less keen to leave the San Siro, having just extended his deal until 2017.
Silva claimed over the weekend that he was ‘glad’ that his proposed switch to the Parc des Princes collapsed, revealing that he never wanted to leave San Siro,
If Milan were to lose Ibrahimovic, they could look to the Premier League to fill the void.
Manchester City forwards Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko plus Liverpool frontman Andy Carroll are all said to be under consideration.
