Milan, Jul 12: France Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain are set to make a joint offer worth £51 million for AC Milan duo Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

Following spells with Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan, the big Swede Ibrahimovic could become the most expensive player in history as his total cost in transfer fee could add up to £150m.

According to Sportmediaset, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is willing to sell the duo in a double deal worth £51 million while director for football of PSG has given the green signal to send the bid to Galliani as per reports in L'Equipe.

PSG, who are owned by billionaire Qatari investors, have been busy in the summer transfer market after finalising a deal worth £24m for Napoli striker Ezequiel Lavezzi.

However, the Rossoneri had earlier rejected a £30m offer from PSG for Thiago Silva. Reports suggest that the Brazilian defender has already rejected the fresh offer from the French giants having signed a contract extension with AC Milan on Jul 2.

But given the financial crisis, AC Milan could raise a mammoth £130 million, of which £80m could be saved in wages should the pair agree to leave the Italian giants.

AC Milan are already set to replace Ibrahimovic with Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez while veterans like Alessandro Nesta, Mark Van Bommel, Filipe Inzaghi, Gennaro Gattuso and Clarence Seedorf have already left the club.
