No departure for Ibra as Guardiola keeps the faith…
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has said there is little chance of Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving the club.
Milan and Manchester City have been linked with the Swedish striker whose future has come under question following the arrival of Spain forward David Villa.
The Rossoneri distanced themselves from Ibrahimovic after Adriano Galliani deemed the cost of an operation “too expesive”, yet Italian reports still link the striker with a loan move to San Siro.
But Guardiola maintains ‘Ibra’ will remain at the Camp Nou.
“The rumours regarding an Ibrahimovic exit are false,” he told Sport.
“He is an important player for us and we are relying on him. He will show much better things in his second season.”
On Thursday, Ibrahimovic himself also ruled out any possibilities of a departure after revealing that he has the full support of Guardiola.
