Zlatan Ibrahimovic: I always knew I was leaving Inter Milan

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he always knew he would be leaving Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan.

The Swede's experience at Inter also ended on a bitter note when he moved to Barcelona in 2009, just as Jose Mourinho's men were gearing up to win the Treble in 2010.

He writes in his new book, “While Maxwell was picking up his things to go back to Barcelona, I passed him a pair of my boots and said: 'Take these to Barcelona. I'll meet you there soon enough.'

“They all thought I was joking and started laughing. However, just two days later, Barcelona invited me to a meeting and after 20 minutes I was a Blaugrana player."
