AC Milan are set to use 17-year-old attacking mid-fielder Hachim Mastour in a player plus cash offer for talismanic PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to reputed Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 33-year-old is considered a dream signing for the fallen Italian giants, as they look to rebuild extensively ahead of next season’s Serie A, with PSG’s interest in starlet Mastour set to play a key role in negotiations, the report . suggests.
PSG had previously offered close to a 5 million for the signing of the Moroccan starlet, with French big-spenders AS Monaco also rumored to be interested in his services. Ibrahimovic’s future has been uncertain since the end of this season, with a host of top European clubs, including Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC also rumored to be interested in signing the former Barcelona and AC Milan frontman.
Mino Raiola, agent of the Swedish superstar, is said to be in Paris, as he looks to discuss his client’s future with the Paris based club. However, the Rossoneri are set to face stiff competition from Real Madrid CF, after former Los Blancos president Ramon Calderon tweeted that the Spanish giants could be tempted to move for the mercurial striker, as he enters into the last year of his contract with Paris Saint Germain.
Ibrahimovic acaba contrato el a o que viene y es un gran jugador, con mucho tirA?n para el Bernabeu. Muchas posibilidades de q ocurra.

Calderon’s tweet roughly translates to- “Ibrahimovic out of contract next year and is a great player with a lot of pull to the Bernabeu. Q many possibilities occur.”
With the future of Karim Benzema in doubt and due to a shortage of renowned world-class number 9’s at the Santiago Bernabeu, the interest makes sense, as PSG look to cash in on the 33-year-old to fund other moves in the coming months.
