Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi claims that he has held discussions with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about becoming the sporting director when he retires.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed that he has held discussions with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about becoming the sporting director when he retires.

Ibrahimovic scored 41 goals last season as they were crowned Ligue 1 champions, and the PSG chief has claimed that he and the Sweden international have already had talks about taking over the role after the striker stops playing.

"I spoke to Zlatan so that he'll stay with us when he finishes his playing career and become sporting director," he told RTL Radio.

"If he does that, he'll become the best sporting director in the world. He's got a big personality and everybody respects him. I appreciate the professional that is Zlatan; the man that is Zlatan. He's very, very funny.

"I want to keep some former players when they stop, for example Zoumana Camara is somebody I would like to keep with us."

Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that PSG will bid £50m for Chelsea winger Eden Hazard this summer.
