Paris – Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent is hopeful the AC Milan striker will complete his move to Paris Saint-Germain soon, saying that Serie A is about to lose its last remaining star.

Thiago Silva signed a five-year contract with PSG on Saturday and Mino Raiola is in discussions with the big-spending club for Ibrahimovic to join his former Milan teammate.

In an interview with French newspaper L'Equipe on Sunday, Raiola says, “we will continue working on this deal” and adds “I really hope to reach an agreement with PSG. This weekend is a time for reflection.”

PSG has yet to agree to Ibrahimovic's salary demands with the stumbling block thought to be the French 75 percent tax on wages above a million euros per year.

Raiola adds, “When he goes, there will not be any more big names left in Italy.” – Sapa-AP
