PRINCETON, New Jersey: Paris Saint-Germain's most recent big money signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic will join up with his new teammates on Tuesday at their summer training camp in Princeton, the club have confirmed.

A statement on PSG's official website read: "Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected in New York in the early afternoon (evening in France) in order to join up with PSG at their camp in Princeton."

Ibrahimovic could make his debut in Saturday's friendly against MLS outfit DC United in Washington DC.

"I don't know if Ibrahimovic will be able to play, I hope he will be able to play for 30 minutes but that will depend on his physical condition," said PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti in the wake of the 1-1 draw against Chelsea in New York on Sunday.

"Once he has arrived we will decide whether he can play or not."

The 30-year-old, who was part of the Sweden side eliminated from Euro 2012 at the group stage, moved to Paris from AC Milan for 20 million euros ($24.5 million, 15.7 million Euros) last week.

His signing follows those of Brazilian defender Thiago Silva, also from AC Milan, Argentine attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli and young Italian midfielder Marco Verratti from Pescara this summer.
