Barcelona president Laporta: We signed everyone Guardiola wanted

Barcelona president Joan Laporta says they're delighted with their summer market work. After closing the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk defender Dmtryo Chygrynskiy yesterday, Laporta insisted they had met every request from coach Pep Guardiola.

He said: "We brought everyone he asked for. The first objective was to replace the striker with the departure of Samuel Eto'o, and that was fulfilled.

"We also brought Ibrahimovic, who was a priority and was fulfilled. Then Maxwell joined. And now the icing on the cake has been Chygrynskiy. And I know that the coach is very pleased with his squad."
