Barcelona director general Joan Oliver has refused to rule out a swap involving Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Manchester City winger Robinho.

Robinho was offered to Barca last week by City during talks over Ibrahimovic and primarily for midfielder Yaya Toure.

Asked about the swap rumours, Oliver told Sport: "These operations are complicated due to the valuation of the players.

"The players are at different levels and we would not rule out a trade as a concept, but rather we speak of a purchase and sale."

It's understood the intention of Barca is to sell Ibrahimovic for his market price this summer.
