It seems that Barcelona have finally made the big move that has been expected of them all summer, especially with the amount of cash splashed by Real Madrid so far on Kaka, Ronaldo and Benzema. According to Joan Laporta, the Barcelona President, Inter Milan and Barcelona have agreed on a deal that will send Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has been been linked with Manchester United and Barca themselves this summer to Barcelona, while Samuel Eto’o and 40 million Euros will make their way to Inter. Samuel Eto’o has been linked with numerous of clubs including Manchester City.
The deal will conclude when Eto’o and Ibrahimovic (or if) agree to contracts with their new clubs. Eto’o has spent the last five seasons with Barcelona, scoring 108 league goals, winning three league titles and two Champions league titles. Ibrahimovic completed three seasons with Inter, scoring 57 league goals and winning three league titles with the nerazzurri.
The deal comes two days after Barcelona signed Inter’s Brazilian left back Maxwell and after their bid for David Villa for around 40 million Euros was turned down by Valencia.
