Ibrahimovic waits on Barca move: report

Swedish football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed on Saturday that he would be interested in a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

“There’s a chance that I’ll go to Barcelona if a concrete offer is made. In this case it would be interesting for me,” the Inter Milan striker told Swedish tabloid Expressen.

“It’s up to Inter to decide what they want to do. I respect my contract. I do my job and am happy to be here.”

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti revealed on Friday that he was in talks with the Spaniards about the Swede.

Cameroon forward Samuel Eto’o could be heading in the opposite direction while Brazil full-back Maxwell and Belarus winger Alexander Hleb could also switch between the two.

Spanish media have reported that Barcelona would pay 45 million euros for the Swede in a deal which would also include Eto’o.

Ibrahimovic, who has been with Inter since 2004, is considered one of the best strikers in European football but has hinted on several occasions that he was ready for a move to Spain from Italy while Barca have long made it clear they want to be shot of Eto’o.

Milan confirmed in a statement that the Swedish striker had “tested negative” twice in a row, as stipulated in the protocol to be able to lift the quarantine procedure.
   
Ibrahimovic, 39, sounded a more triumphal note on his social media: “You are cured! The health authority says the quarantine is over, you can go out!”, he wrote on Twitter.

The announcement comes a day after Milan said Ibrahimovic had tested positive a second time for Covid-19, putting in doubt his participation in the Milan derby on October 17.
 
   
Ibrahimovic first tested positive on September 24.
   
The derby remains in doubt with two other Milan players and five from Inter currently in self-quarantine.
   
In spite of his absence, Milan have made a decent start to the season, having climbed to second in Serie A after winning all three of their games and reaching the group stages of the Europa League.
