Barcelona are spending the day tying up loose ends over a sensational agreement for Inter's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Barcelona are spending the day tying up loose ends over a sensational agreement for Inter's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Sport says a deal was struck between Barca president Joan Laporta and Inter counterpart Massimo Moratti after midnight last night for the Swede. Barca will pay £35 million cash, plus send Samuel Eto'o and Alex Hleb to Inter in exchange for Ibrahimovic. Eto'o will sign permanently, while Hleb will spend next season on-loan at the San Siro.

Eto'o immediately gave his approval when contacted by Barca last night, while Ibra was happy to drop his wage demands, which had initially thwarted talks last month.

The Swede will join the Treble winners on less wages than Lionel Messi.
