Juventus chiefs calm over Ibrahimovic departure from Inter Milan

Juventus GM Jean-Claude Blanc doesn't expect Inter Milan to be weakened by the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona.

Juventus GM Jean-Claude Blanc doesn't expect Inter Milan to be weakened by the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona.

“I wouldn’t say that,” warned Bianconeri chief Blanc. “If Eto’o arrived to replace the Swede, then it wouldn’t be that bad for them, would it?

“Let us just say that without Ibra the League could be more entertaining.”

As AC Milan have sold Kaka and Inter get set to release Ibrahimovic, does this make the Turin giants favourites?

“We are focused only on our own squad and getting the best results,” added director of sport Alessio Secco.

“Naturally, an Inter without Ibrahimovic would be a step in the right direction for us.”
