Milan: Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has confirmed they ‘talked’ to Paris Saint Germain about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but his wages are a stumbling block.

Italian newspapers are filled with reports of Bianconeri`s interest in the Swede, who started his Italian Serie A career in Turin before walking away post-Calciopoli in 2006.

"It is certain that Pavel Nedved and Leonardo talked about Ibra. Ibra is a great player but not the type we are looking for in terms of age and economic parameters," Marotta said Saturday.

"Without doubt he is a champion but at this moment Italian clubs cannot sign players who earn such high wages. We appreciate him a great deal, who wouldn`t like a player like him? However, it is not possible," he said.
