AC Milan’s Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still a long way off reaching agreement for a move to French club Paris Saint Germain, his agent said on Friday.

“In Italy, you invent stories, we’re very far (from an agreement),” agent Mindo Raiola told Italian television station Mediaset Sport.

Raiola revealed he was due to meet PSG sporting director Leonardo on Friday, but added: “Today I see Leonardo, but I don’t want to.”  Sources close to the French club have said that an agreement between the two clubs was reached Thursday for Ibrahimovic and Brazilian teammate Thiago Silva.

Silva’s agent Paulo Tonietto has insisted he has not been contacted by PSG.

The 27-year-old defender is currently training in Rio de Janeiro with the Brazilian Olympic team of which he is captain.

Qatari-owned PSG are reported to have made a global offer of 65 million euros ($79m) for both Ibrahimovic and Thiago.
