Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff says the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will mean a change of style for Pep Guardiola's team.

Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff says the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will mean a change of style for Pep Guardiola's team.

"The signing of the Swedish striker is not simply changing shirts. It involves modifying the dynamics of a three-time winning team to integrate the player," said Cruyff.

"And this leads to a greater motivation for everyone. He was what Pep wanted.

"With Ibrahimovic, the team's passing will change. With his technique, he can start receiving and playing it short, for his physique, he can fight for long, high balls. This should increase the number of crosses being played."
