Next Story

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he would welcome Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho at Paris St-Germain, but admitted all of the rumours are just speculation for now, according to

The Swedish striker has adapted to life in Ligue 1 superbly, and currently leads the league's scoring chart with 19 goals in 22 games for PSG.

And the big-spending French club have been linked with both Mourinho and Ronaldo, amid rumblings that the pair could be set to quit the Bernabeu in the summer.

But Ibrahimovic, who spent a season in La Liga with Barcelona, has played down reports linking the Portuguese duo with PSG - although he admits it would be a dream double signing.

"It would be great news for any team to sign Mourinho and Ronaldo," Ibrahimovic told Marca. "Mourinho is a great coach, one of the best in the world, while Ronaldo is among the best players.

"However, the fact is that it's just speculation at this point, and not the reality.

"People can always dream of signing them and speculate what could happen, but there is no point in saying anything else on it until something takes off."

Mourinho's Real Madrid side take on Barcelona in the first El Clasico of 2013 tonight - Barcelona visit the Bernabeu this evening for the Copa Del Rey semi-final first-leg.

Madrid trail the Catalans in La Liga by a massive deficit - 15 points as it stands - while Ronaldo trails Messi in the Pichichi race by a huge margin - 21 goals for Ronaldo versus 33 for Messi.

The Portugal international has a contract with the La Liga champions until June 2015, while Mourinho's Real Madrid deal expires a year later - in the summer of 2016.
