Ibrahimovic deal impossible, says Marotta

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be leaving Paris Saint-Germain to rejoin the club.

The Swede has been linked with a Bianconeri return of late, and although fellow director Pavel Nedved spoke to PSG counterpart Leonardo about the player, the 57-year-old says his side cannot afford their old star.

"Nedved and Leonardo certainly discussed Ibrahimovic," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Without doubt he is a champion, but Italian clubs cannot afford to sign someone of his wages. We appreciate him a great deal, but it is not possible.

"He is a great player, but not the type to match our age and financial parameters though."

Ibrahimovic had featured for the Bianconeri from 2004 to 2006, before turning out for Serie A rival Inter and AC Milan and joining PSG last summer.
