Zlatan Ibrahimovic has labelled Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and the Barcelona team as 'mediocre'.

The Paris Saint-Germain ace was quizzed on whether or not Balotelli would be a good player for the Catalan giants to pursue but feels his former Inter Milan teammate would be more suited with Spanish champions Real Madrid.

"Balotelli to Madrid? I cannot see it," Ibrahimovic told diez.hn.

"I would put him more towards Barca. A mediocre team and a mediocre player."

This is just the latest in a string of negative comments Ibrahimovic has made against Barcelona since he departed the club for AC Milan following his loan spell there in 2010.
