Agent Ibrahimovic doesn't reject Barcelona rumours

Asked about the rumours linking Inter Milan forward and Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovich (27) with a move to Barcelona (read more here), the player's agent Mino Raiola has said last week in an interview with Catalan radio station Ona FM that Barcelona could be an option for the player:

"Which player wouldn't like to play at Barça? Barça has always been a spectacular club and it's actually more than a club, it's an institution.

At this moment they're playing extremely well, they have great fans and it's a fantastic city. So it's obvious that all great players like Barça. Zlatan would certainly choose the Liga over the Premier League. He's used to the Italian climate, so he would adapt better to Spain and the league there. At this moment he would be more willing to move to Spain.

But it's up to the presidents to talk if they want. Zlatan has told me that he doesn't want to think about his future now. He has a contract at Inter and we'll just see what happens. The first thing now is to win the league. Although it's true that he was disappointed after the Champions League elimination."

he is the best striker in the world today if he comes to barca ohhhhhhhh! i can't imagine a team more deadly than barca's next season messi on the right ribery on the left and ibra in the centre. i say go for him he wants to play for barca but his price is too high moretti said he won't let him go unless he will have 100 millions euro!! i can't see him leaving for this buyout clause he will leave for less.

...for me,hope barca don't bring this guy to us...don't like his attitude...very good striker,but with manners of a bosnian peasant...please no blair vic project...sorry if my opinion hurts someones feelings,but that's mine...also a left winger would suit us better to give more possibilities by feeding etoo with passes or let henry swith into the center...

I don't see why should Barca buy some overrated player (striker) such as Ibra, Adebayor, etc.. Eto'o is still here and I think he should renew his contract this summer. Currently, ETO'O is the best striker in the world. More stupid thing is why should Barca pay 100M for Ibra or 45M for Adebayor for example?? That's not realistic price. On the other side, how much should Barca ask for Eto'o? 200M? I know he's in the last year and a half of his contract, but people, please, stop staring at the neighbor's garden. His roses are not more beautiful than ours. We're still fighting for 3 titles, and Eto'o will certainly contribute to achieve this.

i would like to see Z.I playing for Barca.
Ibra is not overrated..he is the best inter striker by miles ..the only problem - he is bit old for the price they ask..
Tell u who is overrated - Cristiano Ronaldo is overrated

i see your point guys etoo is the best right now cause he scores a lot this season but in individual attributes ibra is way better than him. i agree with all of u that etoo shouldn't leave cause he has the ambition to play for barca he is a real lion! but if ibra can come to camp nou it will be good for all sides Inter will have to change their playing style cause they don't have ibra on their side. they play "ugly" football cause they count on ibra to score in the last minutes and to bring 3 points home. for barca ibra would be perfect he is determined to win a title so he will fight like a lion to acheive his goal!

Im a big fan of ibrahimovic and i agree with amir i would love to see barcelona with an attacking line of messi, ribery and ibra. but i would only want him to come if eto'o decides to leave.

its fuuny how everyone called for eto'o head last summer but everyone wants him to stay now.. "renew contract", "we can't let eto'o leave", "eto'o is the best" just some things people said after eto start scoring again. respect all our players no matter what i still like ronaldinho. i don't kno what attitude everyone is talking about.. zlatan is a great player and if u don't want someone like that cause he has ego then your an idiot(no offense). eto had an ego, ronaldino had an ego.. ronaldo has an ego but manu are still winning so i don't see what ego has to do with it. zlatan is great in the air, technically better than eto'o and far better passer.. only complaint u should have over zlatan is that he doesn't have the work rate of eto'o but eto is staying so i'm ok even though i dream of seeing them link up

I think most Barca fans are split on this. For all my opinion is worth, I don't want him...UNLESS....Eto'o leaves (I prefer his contract is renewed); Kun should be our first option if Eto'o leaves; Benzema is priced out (second option) and that leaves Ibra for me as our 3rd option but it would have to be at a reasonable price given the ages of Benzema and Kun. I just don't think he will add anything different or better to what we already have.

i think ibra will basically smash barca's image of a clean club. he is an extremely egoistic and selfish player. NTM, he is a diver. i hate divers. cant stand them. he may be really good and all, but i would much rather see aguero or benzema line up in a barca shirt than this man. he reminds me of ronaldo, and thats definitely not a good thing
