Ibrahimovic agent in Barcelona

Catalan radio station RAC 1 claims that Mino Raiola, the agent of Inter Milan forward and Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic (27), is in Barcelona to close the final contract deal between the striker and Barcelona.

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo meanwhile claims that Barcelona doesn't plan to make an offer of 75 million euro if the Inter-Eto'o deal wouldn't go through, like Italian media reported this afternoon. Barcelona is waiting until all parties have found an agreement to then finalize the whole operation. A Barcelona source told Spanish news agency EFE that the 75 million euro plus Hleb is not an option at all.

The player's agent Josep Maria Mesalles is at this moment again in Milan to hold talks with Inter officials, that started at 5:15 pm this afternoon. Italian sports paper Il Corriere dello Sport claims that the last point to be solved is the exit bonus of around 4-5 million euro. The paper thinks that a deal will be found because of the good relationships between both presidents.

rebeca said...

prathsBarca said...

Yeah we want this to end, so we can enjoy barca trip to US. cant wait :)

Knives Out said...

Finally time to say good riddance?
Can we bring on some magic now? :P

Moltisanti said...

That 75m offer was obviously not true. We won't pay that much money for anybody. Actually I believe the final prize will be lower than expected by the media.

Pep, did we paid last year an exit bonus to Deco or Ronaldinho?

Anonymous said...

Eto'o truly is a SOB.

WTF, you seriously want an exit bonus? actually I would give him an exit bonus if it means we are gonna get rid of his @$$.

He doesn't deserve to wear that jersey anymore. I have defended him the ENTIRE time because I thought Barca and especially Pep should have kept their plans internally instead of coming to the media and saying they want to get rid of Eto'o because thats disrespectful.

And I'm glad Eto'o hasn't gone bananas in public and has kept some class through out the period. But to ask for an exit bonus is pushing it over the top.

They don't want you...so move on instead of acting like a greedy bastard.

barca4life said...

luca toni is relegated to reserve team for not leaving bayern this summer.i am afraid if eto'o stays violating pep's order he will also put him to reserve bench ahead of world cup 2010.if eto'o is smart enough he will leave barca at any cost

tero said...

75 million is lunacy!

barca nike said...

Did Ibra break his hand or fractured it ??/

barca4life said...

Sigh the 3rd comment is not me, looks like I have to start only posting with my google account

Anonymous said...

We're paying more than 75 if you count Eto'o and Hleb's salary. Second most expensive signing ever, after CR9.

barca4life said...

The 9th comment is not me either

barca nike said...

when Eto'o joins Inter he will criticise Barca

fcbee said...

Time to take a more original nick, barca4life... ;)

He will tell the truth about how he has been treated. Will be interesting...

Blaugrana said...

The way I see it, Etoo has no choice but to leave now. He knows if he makes the deal fall through he will not be well received in Camp Nou.

If you really want to end this soap opera Etoo, please leave and let us keep fond memories of you. Don't let greed tarnish that.

Still crossing my fingers, but when this deal goes through we have another problem. Do we sign Masch or Cesc? Leo wants Masch but Cesc is a Cule.

God i can't wait till this transfer season ends. The Madrid media has been working overtime to destabilize the aura that surrounds our team. Here's hoping their project blows up in their face.

In either case, Iundersta

lol, i'll just use my google account from now on. Simple solution

lol @ real b4l. Some1 is in love with you mate. Hes high on wray and nephew.

And why is all this trheads resulting to Eto smashing? Its it news he wants the "exit bonus"

barca4life said...

Finally i am so happy to see eto'o leaving.man why didn't you leave early.if u really need money so much u could have signed for man city and we could bring villa on cheap.shame boy.you should have done better for the club who has given you so much.

ViCulé said...

barca4life, just sign in and we'll disregard all other comments with your name.
As for this whole situation I just hope all parties are satisfied soon enough so the team can be practically complete. Besides the need of a mid.

On a calmer note, does Ibra always make funny faces everytime the ball is in front of him? All his pics are pretty funny. haha

Vamos Barça!!!

Anurag said...

I am so happy that finally we can see light at the end of the tunnel.wow ibrahimovic is coming.i am dancing over the moon

Blaugrana said...

barca nike...I have that same feeling. The only way his criticism will carry weight is if he starts hitting the net. We would never hear the end of it. Thankfully though, i don't see him doing that. In fact i think he'll be lucky if he hits 20 goals. That is why he agreed to have his bonus linked to chamiponships won and not to goals scored.

barca4life said...

Lol, not a problem, imitation is the highest form of flattery. So i have no problem if somebody else wants to be me

marc said...

Hopefully this will end today

blaugrana1 said...

inra's agent is here, eto's agent is there..etoo wants an exit fee, ibra and etoo are not talking abt their future...GODDDD!!! will this drama ever end!? i used to love transfer seasons..but u gotta be reall and say this is by far the worst transfer season ever! Markets r inflated and now we need a midfielder and a pure LW but there are no players and if there is toooo xpensive!

Sho said...

shame I was late. When I saw B4L's case, i tried to open a goggle acc, but some1 who wants to be second me has it already. All the best.

messiiiiiiiiii said...

Pay the man his money. He is a legend. Can't say it enough: he scored in to Champions League finals!!! Hasn't he earned an exit bonus? This situation is out of control and sad on all sides. According to El Mundo Deportivo, Eto'o wants to talk to Guardiola about his recent comments. I think that's fair. That was really stupid on Pep's part. I just want this to end. Sammy, you brought us many trophies!!! You should have had a hero's exit.

Sanur said...

I hate saying this but..looking at all the possible figures...we should have just gone for Benzema straight £30mil and then sweeten up Eto'o by telling him how much we need him and want him and get him to sign a new contract so we can flog him weeks later for whatever we get.

Thats considering he doesn't go over the top with his new salary, only abit more that what he earns currently.

That Idiot AC Milan haven't helped things either, I have a feeling they are stiring something to stop Eto'o going to Inter.

Lets wait, theres no point talking anymore....A Meeting is taking place so hopefully something good will come out of it lets just pray because I have not been my usual self for over a week and Im going nuts!!

NouBarca said...

so eto'o knows wheree the door is.thanks african lion for all ur contribution.i still love u boy

slovan said...

We don't need a left winger. We have Maxwell who can cover.

shanewhitehouse said...

every one things this is over but i dont think it is i will only say yes!!
when it is ofical i hope it is anyone know when they will finish talking?

Sho said...

BTW sho= NouBarca

Sho said...

Trying to be me? Too late loser.

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA

I havent laughed this much since May 27

slovan said...

thanks eto'o for leaving.btw i still love how u squeezing money from barca

barca nike said...

we bought Max to cover the left-back position and not left-wing ,Slovan. Youth players can cover that position.

Anonymous said...

Sanur do you think benezema would have come to barca had we offered the same contract that madrid offers?? i dont think so.. just as in the case of ribery when pep said he wants to go somewhere else and has made up his mind... i dont think lyon would have agreed to such a fee from barca...

i am more interested in seeing perez's face when barca kicks madrid's ass in their own backyard and win as much trophies as possible...

prathsBarca said...

Btw mascherano's agent has come out openly stating his intent to join barca, i think this will piss off rafa. in any case i dont think he is worth money, paulson on loan is a good deal. what are your thoughts on this ?

Anurag said...

Who does Eto'o think he is??? I want this i want that.... Some one should remind him that he is not the only one that has won a golden boot. two season ago was other player, next year will be another player. sell him to malaga

slovan said...

barca nike: Maxwell can cover the left wing position too. He gives us many options.

Anonymous said...

mascherano is a solid player...but he isn't worth more than 25 mio. euros...the market is totally inflated and I think Liverpool wants at least 40 which is BS.

But to be honest...in this case I don't care what Messi wants...if I had a chance to bring Cesc back to Barca...thats a MUST regardless of whoever else is available.

Argentina doesn't have all that many great players anymore as they used to in the past.

Sanur said...

Anonymous...They all say they only wanto to play for a particular club when its semms likely thats who they'll be heading to...Even Ronaldo spoke more of barca than Madrid (his own team mate said this)....Ribery agents wants a move to Madrid only because of the lump of money he'll receive from the charity that perez is receiving from the banks..

Ronaldo will fail miserably, benzema will not crack it when it matters most and kaka will be in and out of the team through injury...and yes you are absolutely correct barca will kick their A..es when we meet them.

rado,serbia said...

Laporta should buy Ibrahimovic and send Eto'o to Barcelona B or C for all season.

Aussie Barca Fan said...

A friend of mine who is Spanish said he expects it to be b/w $50-55 million plus Hleb if the Eto'o deal falls through. Either way it seems certain we are going to get him.

Anonymous said...

doesn't eto'o only get 7.5 million if he stays?

he's getting 10 million salary already for thsi year..he wants 6 million bonus? that's almost his whole salary.

Henry said...

who will pay me exit bonus if i leave the blog ???????? lolllllll

btw i am not greedy like etoo.so guys relax :)

prathsBarca said...

@anony I tend to disagree with you on cesc case. Firstly he deserted us for greed and could have eventually made it to first just like busquets. Secondly arsenal wont let him cheaply and demand a min of 50 mill. This is too much considering he is our cantera product. I believe paulson on loan would be the best option this season. Next season we may sign some star for Midfield with the new prez.

Sanur said...

Mascherano is quality but why would we pay excess of 25mil for him with Toure only missing for 1.5months, when he returns then what?...after what Toure done for us last year he does not deserve to be on the bench even if Mascharano earns it.

To all those Eto'o lovers who think that Eto'o is the reason Barça have won the treble and other titles in the last five years: go to "youtube" and watch " Eto'o All Goals 2008-02009" . Out of the 30 goals he scored were 3 penalties , about 4 goals where he actually dribbled past ONE defender , ONE goal scored from outside the penalty area . The other 22 goals were TAP-INS . Fact no fiction !!

refter said...

To be able to score tap-ins you need movement and being at the right place. Go study the basics of football before you try to act smart...

barcalove said...

i can't agree more with u anony above me.eto'o needs 4-5 chances to score a goal.sometimes he just misses sitters unbelievably.with the assists he got last season forwards like vill,ibra or even forlan would score 50+ goals last season.

i am finally glad that he is leaving

Anonymous said...

^you are right...

but it was pretty dumb to sign two african players for the defensive midfield...

overall with Pep our transfer policy has been extremely poor...

Hleb sucked...Keita wasn't exactly smart considering we had an african player for that position...Caceres was a flop as well....Henrique remains to be seen.

we paid 14+16+17+8 for those 4 players...we could have signed two EXCELLENT players with that money last year and we bought lots of question marks that didn't pan out yet.

since we won this matter never popped up but in the end looking bad...last year's signings were horrible.

ponnyKID said...

all i want is this thing to just be over...seriously... eto -inter ibra- barca.. lets move on..

refter said...

Let's see if Ibra scores 50... Would be a world Liga record. You'll soon wake up from your Eto'o-hate dreams and see how crucial he was for the team when Ibra will frustrate Messi, Xavi and Iniesta by always wanting to put up his own little show.

prathsBarca said...

we will be def glad about Pep's decision just as in the case like ronnie, deco n others. Weren't we happy last season with grit and determination shown by the team ?. Letz just get over with this etoo episode, lots of bad blood spilled. Look forward to the new project and season ahead.

Sanur said...

According to Sport the news posted at 21:15 Central European time and 20:15 GMT just over fifteen minutes ago...the deal is going through with Ibra to Barca and eto'o to Inter...looks like Inter might cover the bonus through incresed salary.

Anonymous said...

Tap ins? Any and every striker who play with Xavi, Inies, Messi would score more tap ins cos he would not really need to do the hard job.

If Ibra need to go link up with defence and score from 40 yards, then we might just stop paying Xavi and Inies.

You lot are just putting pressure on poor Ibra. Thats the last thing the guy sneeds after this prolonged saga. Let him come in peace and do his Job.Now if he score 25 goals, the Eto lovers would easily quote you. If wew dont win the trebble, they can easily quote you. Stop this thing about Eto needing 5 chances to score 1. cos if we are to go by what you are saying, Ibra would score a min of 50 every season with us and thats saying he needs 5 chances to score 2.

NouBarca

Marc4barca said...

if you hate eto because of tap ins then you hate alot of strikers. tap ins is the basic role of a striker especially for people like eto who has speed and good poaching instinct but i don't mind how you score once you score, it's just that he misses too much and tap ins aren't so effective against the defensive teams unless they open up or we open them up with a early goal which don't happen to regularly.
