Deal Sends Zlatan to Barcelona
Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o has agreed to transfer to Inter Milan, paving the way for Sweden's forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic to join the Barcelona squad.
Reuters reports that Ibrahimovic left Inter Milan's training camp in the United States to return to Sweden, possibly to sign the contract finalizing his move to Barcelona.
Meanwhile, players and soccer fans alike are looking forward to his arrival in Barcelona. Comparing Ibrahimovic to departing Samuel Eto'o, former Barcelona trainer Terry Venables said to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter that "Ibrahimovic has better touch and is bigger and more powerful. He is a brilliant player…and I think that he will be good for Barcelona."
The transfer should be finalized within the week.
