MILAN, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has confirmed they "talked" to PSG about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but his wages are a stumbling block.
The newspapers in Italy have been filled with reports of Bianconeri interest in the Swede, who had 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," Marotta was quoted as saying by Sky Sport Italia.
"Ibra is a great player, but not the type we are looking for in terms of age and economic parameters.
"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.
