The Juventus director admitted that his side have spoken to Paris Saint-Germain about the Swede, but says they cannot afford the star
The Swede has been linked with a Bianconeri return of late, and although fellow director Pavel Nedved spoke to PSG counterpart Leonardo about the player, the 57-year-old says his side cannot afford their old star.
"Nedved and Leonardo certainly discussed Ibrahimovic," he told Sky Sport Italia.
"Without doubt he is a champion, but Italian clubs cannot afford to sign someone of his wages. We appreciate him a great deal, but it is not possible.
"He is a great player, but not the type to match our age and financial parameters though."
Ibrahimovic had featured for the Bianconeri from 2004 to 2006, before turning out for Serie A rival Inter and AC Milan and joining PSG last summer.
