AC MILAN MAKES OFFICIAL THE SIGNING - TRANSFER OF ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC FROM FC BARCELONA

FC BARCELONA has transferred forward ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC to AC MILAN after 5 hours of intense negotiations this afternoon with all parties involved. A year ago Barça paid Inter Milan 45M€ + Samuel Eto´o (= 75M€) to sell him tonight for 24M€. Surreal turn of events in 24 hours as yesterday the price was 40M€, but there is more to this than first meets the eyes. In the future we may really know what happened to the player, with Guardiola & the Club.

So much was the desire of FC Barcelona Coach Guardiola to have the Swede out that the final deal goes like this, according to the very little information that has been given to media at this early stage of the official announcement by AC milan on its website:
  • Loaned out to AC Milan for this season.
  • AC Milan are then obliged at the end of this season to buy the player
  • The transfer price is 24M€
  • A 4 year contract.
  • Ibrahimovic takes a salary cut to around 8M€ +/- from 12M€ for Milan; as of next year when officially bought by the Italian Club.
  • AC Milan pays the original 12M€ salary of Ibrahimovic this season while on loan. This may explain the 24M€ transfer figure.
This is the basic news filtering out. The small line details will emerge exactly in the coming hours. I will re-correct the info below in a "LATEST" note if needed.

Ibrahimovic left the Barça offices still claiming that he still does not know why Guardiola wishes him to leave the Club. Stay tuned!

I'm a huge Barca fan but I must say that Pep Guardiola is a fucking disgrace and a Cancer for FC Barcelona!! Pep is an ego-mainiac, Why the hell does he pay such an extravagent amount on Ibra only to give him away for basically for free the following season?? First it was Hleb then Chygrynsky after that Yaya Toure and now Zlatan! What the hell is Guardiola's problem, if he has problems with players why does he not man up and the state what his issues with the players are instead of hiding the facts?? Ibrahimovic is a fantastic talent that could have fit in perfectly at Barca had Pep only had more paitence and sense! So is he going to push Villa out the bakdoor next season if he doesn't score 40 goals a season, or does he get a pass because he's spanish? I really hope Guardiola gets sacked by the end of next season Barca is on a self-destruct course with him at the helm. You can't be expect to challenge for all trophies when you ship out your best players before the beginning of every season!!!
