Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva staying put, says PSG president

The Ligue 1 champions' chief, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, refutes speculation linking two of the club's prized assets with a switch away from the French capital this summer
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has vowed to keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva at the club for the duration of their contracts.

The former AC Milan duo have each been linked with a switch away from Parc des Princes this summer, some 12 months after their big-money moves from the Rossoneri.

On Thursday, newly appointed PSG boss Laurent Blanc confirmed that the club would be retaining the services of Ibrahimovic and president Al-Khelafi echoed those sentiments while also denying Silva's purported departure.

He told a press conference: "I read lots of speculation in the press about them leaving but I can confirm that Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay here until the end of their contracts."

Liga giants Barcelona are reportedly keen on luring the Brazil international to Camp Nou during the off-season, while a number of clubs in Italy are said to have registered an interest in signing the Swede.

Both have proved valuable additions to les Parisiens ranks and played a pivotal role in the club ending their 19-year wait for a league title last season, with the Swede netting 30 times en route to Ligue 1 glory.

Ibrahimovic has a contract until June 2015 while Silva's deal expires in the summer of 2017.
