Barcelona leave Ibrahimovic future to Raiola

Barcelona have left the future of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the hands of his agent, Mino Raiola.

Sport says Barca are prepared to listen to any offers Raiola is able to generate from interested clubs for the Swede. Manchester City and AC Milan remain in contact.

However, if nothing concrete can be found, Barca management are prepared to go round again next season with Ibra, even if his place in the team structure has been further lessened by the arrival of David Villa.

Meanwhile, at his first media conference of the new season, coach Pep Guardiola will be asked for details of his 45 minute long meeting with Ibrahimovic yesterday. Barca sports director Andoni Zubizarreta also sat in on the talks.
