AS says Ibrahimovic is on Real's three-man shortlist of striker targets after Real coach Bernd Schuster demanded a new attacking signing be made before the summer market shuts in crunch talks with directors yesterday.

Real president Ramon Calderon has assured Schuster that cash is available to make a major signing and will back his coach should he demand the capture of Ibrahimovic from the Italian champions.

Ibra, along with Real Zaragoza forward Diego Milito and Ajax's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, are the three big names on Schuster's shopping list.
