San Siro duo Parc des Princes bound.
AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has claimed the club are selling striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Thiago Silva to Paris St Germain.
The pair are reported to have joined the ambitious Ligue 1 outfit for a combined 65 million euros (£51.4m).
“Yes, I sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to PSG,” Berlusconi was quoted as saying on www.gazzetta.it.
“We will save 150 million euros in two years.”

So PSG continue to do a very passable impression of Man City and have now outdone themselves with a very impressive capture of two players in their peak. AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi clearly felt that the offer of £51m for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva was too good to turn down.
PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti will hope that new additions will help to steer the Paris club a step nearer to the club’s first Ligue 1 title in almost two decades, having come painfully close to clinching the title last term, only to lose out to Montpellier on the final day of the campaign.
Thiago Silva was strongly linked with a move away from the San Siro for much of the summer with a number of prospective suitors being interested in the Brazilian centre back. The 27 year old has enjoyed three solid seasons in Serie A and Ancelotti will hope that he will become a defensive lynch pin at the Parc des Princes, perhaps playing alongside compatriot Alex.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic had the most prolific season of his illustrious career last term, notching up 35 goals in all competitions before heading off to the Euro 2012 finals where he impressed before Sweden crashed out at the group stage. The powerfully built forward has enjoyed a remarkable record of success over the past decade plus, securing domestic titles in Holland, Spain and Italy, scoring at a consistent rate and Ancelotti will hope that the 30 year old continues that run in France.
