Zlatan Ibrahimovic has declared he is staying with Barcelona.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has declared he is staying with Barcelona.

Ibrahimovic has been strongly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp following a disappointing first season at Barcelona and the club's summer signing of Spain striker David Villa.

But the player himself says he has no intention of leaving the Spanish champions.

"I was a Barca player when I left (to go on holiday) and I'll be a Barca player when I go back," he said at a press conference to announce his return to the Sweden national team.

And he added: "I have four years left on my contract."

The former Inter Milan forward also took a swipe at the press for their constant publication of stories linking him with other clubs.

"I want to congratulate everybody that has used my name, because it's fun to have been at Chelsea, at Manchester City, without having been there," he said.
