Al-Khelaifi: Ibrahimovic & Thiago Motta staying at PSG

The Swede has been linked with a return to AC Milan, while the Italy international was to rejoin Atletico Madrid – but the man in charge at Parc des Princes says neither will be…

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has declared that both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Motta are staying at the club.

The pair have just one year remaining on their respective contracts with the Ligue 1 champions and Ibrahimovic has been heavily linked with a return to AC Milan, while Thiago Motta has publicly expressed his desire to rejoin Atletico Madrid.

However, despite Thursday’s arrival of Angel Di Maria from Manchester United for €63 million, Al-Khelaifi insists that there will be no major departures at the Parc des Princes before the close of the summer transfer window.

“Thiago Motta has one year left on his contract: he will stay,” the PSG supremo told reporters in the French capital.

“Ibra also has a one year left. He will stay too.”

Indeed, Al-Khelaifi believes that with Di Maria now on board, PSG have a team capable of beating any side in Europe.

“We want to win Champions League and Angel Di Maria will be an added asset for the team,” he added.
