Zlatan Ibrahimovic's big-money move from AC Milan to Paris Saint-Germain is far from being completed, according to the player's agent.

Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi announced in the Italian media on Thursday that he had sold Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to the French side in a deal reported to be worth €62 million.

However, the Swedish striker's agent, Mino Raiola, claims there is still a long way to go before negotiations are complete.

"Is everything done with PSG? We are far away or, to put it better, we are as close [to agreeing terms] as America and China," Raiola told sportmediaset.it.

"Today I will meet [PSG sporting director] Leonardo. But PSG have to realise that, with Zlatan, they are acquiring the best."

Ibrahimovic was Serie A's top scorer last season, netting 28 goals as the Rossoneri finished runners-up to Juventus.

According to reports in Italy, PSG have offered the forward a four-year deal that would see him earn €9 million per season - the same figure he currently gets as the highest-paid player at Milan.

However, the 30-year-old, who is contracted to Milan until June 2015, wants to sign a three-year deal worth €15 million a season.
