Ibrahimovic prefers to join Barcelona

Italian sports paper La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Inter Milan has accepted that Inter Milan forward and Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic (27) could leave in the summer.

During a meeting with the player's agent Mino Raiola earlier this week, Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti would have agreed that the player can leave if Inter wins the title this season and if the Italian club receives a transfer fee of around 60-70 million euro°.

Ibrahimovich would be looking for a new sporting challenge after several years in the Italian league with Juventus and Inter Milan. Twe Swedish striker wants to move to Spain (read more here) and would prefer to join Barcelona because that club would give him the best chances to win the Champions League.

no way! inter are crazy they can keep him

Marlon said...

Not a chance!

60-70 m euro!

Wtf, we can get Asenjo, a left back, and Ribery for that kind of money,
Or Villa and Ribery..

He can go to Real Madrid if he wants

We paid almost 50 million euros for Hleb, Caceres and Keita, so you never know what stupidity by the Barca staff will happen next. Buying Zlatan for 70m and selling Abidal for 5m perhaps?

Amar said...

the truth is that barca could use ibra. imagine alves crossing for ibra.that would be good against ultra defensive sides. plus he can shoot from far.

i think we need a new GK, LB, LW and CF.

barca could use ibra more than villa just because of his height. he would b useful in champions league wen we play against cowards.

but ribery is expensive also. i dont think we can get both.i prefer ribery.

maybe if we sell some players we might get enuf money. if we win champions league we'll get a lot of money also.

we need somebody who can shoot and can head the ball.

It would be great to have this kind of player, I mean tall, strong with excellent shot. With him or the other player with same abilities Barca would be more competitive in penalty area against the teams like Chelsea.
Although, asking price is very high, so the best choice could be Benzema. He's younger and would be cheaper, and of course good physical atributes.
Spending money on Villa wouldn't be clever. I'd prefer some explosive and stronger striker.

I have warmed to the idea of ibra in the past few weeks. He is tall, strong and can score like henry, but he is more creative than henry and not really an all out striker like etoo. He is right footed so he could do the reverse of messi on the left side and he would also be hungry to win the Champions league

Amir said...

guys ibra is the BEST striker in the world today he is brilliant i would love to see him in the azulgrana if we sell etoo for inter who can spend at least 30 millions we can get him by adding another 30 millions

he is really strong and i think Barca needs a player like Zlatan! Buy him!!!

Anonymous said...

not doubt his qualities, but simply not worht that money.Better buy benzema, and other players with lots of potential

Anonymous said...

Buy Asenjo, Gael Clichy/Philip Lahm, bring Henrique back, promote Thiago, Ribery and Benzema.

Benzema is much better than Zlatan in the big games and not to mention younger and faster

Anurag said...

nooo! please god, no!! he is the last person (aside from ronaldo) that i want in barca. i cant stand divers and ibrahimovic definitely is the bigggest of them all. he will ruin barca's image. i dont care if he is the best striker in the world amir, he is NOT a good sportsman

wanted47 said...

we a striker that is hungry to win the CL next season. it doesn`t really matter if it´s benzema,villa or ibra.
everyone of them have special abilities that could help barca.

benzema: fast, young, good finisher, good understanding with other players and good passing.

villa: experienced, excellent finisher, good understanding with xavi and iniesta because of the language

ibra: raw power, fast for his height and weight, freekick, passing, heading, long range shooting

Nerre said...

we wont need to buy him for that kind of money. If Zlatan really wants to leave he will ask them to lower the price.. and i hope we get him soo he can prove everybody they were wrong about him.
Ribery Zlatan Messi
Xavi Yaya Iniesta
Abidal Puyol Pique Alves

We will own Europe for years to come :)

I think this can work out. Mourinho and the Inter Milan staff are long term admirer's of Samuel Eto'o. They can offer a swap deal that can work. If inter were to sell Ibra to Real Madrid, they (Inter)would make Eto'o their primary target anyway. So why not swap players with teams that plan on buying them anyway, and i say that of both teams regardless of what each players buyout clause is

Marc4barca said...

just remember prices always start like this but when the player starts to push and teams refuse to pay so much it drops alot... just look at what happened in zenith with arshavin. we can't have two big CF so eto and 30 mil would do. and we would still be able to sign ribery if we win treble cause that is a lot of bonus money for it.

Aussie Barca Fan said...

I also have to admit I am warming to the idea of Ibra if Eto'o leaves for the right price. I love Eto'o he is my fav Barca player but if he decides he wants another challenge we should not stand in his way.

Ibra is not going to win the CL with Inter. It is good he realises this now like Henry did when he was at Arsenal. The price is far to high. A straight swap between the two may be a better option for both clubs. He is on the same level with Eto'o and should be valued the same.

He has the attributes that we need in a striker - Tall, fast, great shot, header etc. I just wonder if we would be better off going for a future prospect with similar attributes like Benzema?

If we do the trebble anything is possible. VISCA EL BARCA CAMPIONS in waiting for 2009!

Thanks Ibra, but NO THANKS!

Amir said...

you don't like ibra because he is from inter but i can tell u one thing if this season he was in etoo's place ( good season by the way) he would score 50 goals not mentioning his freekicks + headers from dani alves crosses

Anonymous said...

Ibra doesn't score enough goals. This is the truth, his goal-scoring stats is not that impressive.

Amir said...

21 goals!!! with no help!!! if he will be aside xavi iniesta messi henry or even ribery he would score at least 30!! for all of u that doubt him watch this goal and u will fall in love http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZs4Wz6gVm0

F**ck Ibra his shit, Eto'o is better

Amir said...

etoo is good not arguing 'bout that but ibra has a better finishing + headers + free kicks + he's faster + he's a better passer
conclusion: ibra is better.:)

:-0 said...

Amir you don't understand football, Ibra should stay in Inter Barca have to bring younger player for futur .

Barca the Best said...

Ibra is better i agree with Amir

:-0 said...

You two are Idiots Eto'o is Legend

Amir said...

barcelona has to think 'bout future thats for sure but he should concentrate first on the present!! we need a striker a goalkeeper a left back a left wing and a midfielder ! by the way he have bojan no need to think about future if we bring also keirisson that would be perfect we would a duo of strikers for years to go!

Ibra will give a nice touch for barca

Messi Fan said...

We should bring Pato his the perfect player for barca

:-0 said...

Pato is good but he don't have the experience to play in barcelona

I'm not the biggest fan of Ibra and would prefer other options. But hey, if you can cope with Dani Alves and his constant diving and whining Ibra will be no match for you.

:-0 said...

Shaun Wright-Phillips is the best if barca will bring him i will cry from hapiness

Spain said...

this ":-0" is right we should get a player from the premier league like walcott or Philips

:-0 said...

Yesssssss walcott is a very fast player barca should be thinking of him as an option Ibra should stay in Inter

:-0 said...

Ibra is shittttttttttt he's a f**ckin diver it's not barca style he should stay in Italy

Amir said...

wright phillips?! walcott ?! they even aren't strikers not mentioning their awful skills ":-0" you're going crazy!!

Anonymous said...

Ibrahimovic is worth 45 mil euro on the transfer market. Eto'o is worth 42. I dont understand why anyone tosses around figures like 60-70m. Hypothetically we should be able to sell eto'o to mancity and buy ibrah without any loss.

haha wright phillips and walcott haha, hilarious. We should get Pato eventually though.

per said...

Don't like him, don't want him, don't need him.

Get Villa if Eto'o leaves. Villa is without a doubt the best striker in the world.

per said...

Oh, and by the way, Amir, Zlatan is not a free kick-shooter. He's worse than Alves when it comes to free kicks.
