Messi demands Barcelona buy Inter Milan's Ibrahimovic

European champs Barcelona are planning a major bid for Inter Milan striker Ibrahimovic. Corriere dello Sport says Barca star Lionel Messi has urged president Joan Laporta to bring the Swede to the Nou Camp.

And Laporta is ready to meet Messi's request by offering £17 million cash plus Samuel Eto'o in exchange for Ibra.

The super Swede will be handed a base salary of £6.5 million, but with sponsorship and bonuses could stand to make an amazing £12 million-a-year.

Meanwhile, if Ibra hits goal number 25 this weekend in Serie A he will be due a stunning £400,000 bonus.
