El Mundo Deportivo says Barca, after a week of negotiations, have had an offer of £9 million cash plus Samuel Eto'o accepted by Inter. This comes after Inter's initial demands of £35 million cash plus Eto'o in exchange for Ibra.
The final piece in the jigsaw for Barca is Eto'o, who must agree to become part of the amazing swap.
Eto'o's agent met with Barca sports director Txiki Beguiristain on Monday to discuss the striker's future.
Inter president Massimo Moratti will also have to be convinced about meeting Eto'o demands - which are mooted to be around £11 million-a-year.
