Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants a reunion with Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Daily Express says City are planning a swoop for Barcelona flop Ibrahimovic, with Mancini preparing a £40m bid for the Sweden striker.

Ibrahimovic, who signed for Spanish giants Barcelona for £57m last summer, has failed to make the grade at the Nou Camp - but remains close to his former Inter coach Mancini.

And it is believed that Pep Guardiola is ready to off-load the striker - with City and Chelsea hot on their heals.
