Barcelona want Alexandre Pato included in any offer from AC Milan for striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Sport says Ibrahimovic is cool on the prospect of a move to Manchester City - and would prefer a return to the San Siro with Milan.

Milan do not have the spending power to match Barca's €50 million asking price - but a solution would be to find a buyer for either Pato or Ronaldinho.

This may play into Barca's hands in trying to sign the 20-year-old Brazilian as a cash-plus Pato deal for Ibrahimovic may suit all parties.
