Paris Saint-Germain Vs. D.C. United: Carlo Ancelotti Hopes Zlatan Ibrahimovic Will Make PSG Debut Saturday

In a conference call Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti said that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would play "40-45 minutes" if he was passed fit for Saturday's friendly against D.C. United. The former Chelsea, AC Milan, and Juventus manager said that the Swedish international striker had arrived in the U.S. Tuesday and was expected to join the French club for training at Princeton University.

PSG, who played to a 1-1 draw against Chelsea Sunday at Yankee Stadium, stunned the soccer world earlier this summer by buying Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva from AC Milan. A busy summer of Italian shopping has since continued for the French giants, who also signed Argentinian Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli and Marco Verrati from Pescara before embarking on their American tour.

Saturday's match, which kicks off at 7:30 at RFK Stadium, will be broadcast on tape delay on Fox Soccer Channel at 10:00 p.m.
