The agent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic says the AC Milan striker's move to PSG will leave Serie A without any world class stars.

Mino Raiola is pushing to close a deal for Ibra with the French mega spenders.

"When he is gone, there will not be any big players in Italian football left," Raiola told L'Equipe.

"In my opinion, 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.

"Zlatan will make Ligue 1 more interesting and his departure will make Serie A poorer.

"He is powerful, elegant and has wonderful technique. I hope the French fans will enjoy watching him play. His arrival at PSG would be an exceptional event as, usually, we only see that kind of deal 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 at the club is exciting."

Despite hours of talks, PSG have yet to match the salary demands of the former Juventus, Inter and Barcelona player.

"Is he unsure of moving here? If Zlatan had a problem with the idea of playing in France then I would not have come to Paris for three days," Raiola continued.

"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 way I see things, either you have a deal or you do not - there is nothing in between.

"Right now, nothing is settled. We will keep working as every detail is important in a contract. But I hope to find a deal with PSG. This weekend is a time for reflection."
