Ibrahimovic wants to stay at Barcelona
Wednesday 30 June 2010
The agent of Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has once again reiterated his client's desire to remain at Camp Nou next season.
Mino Raiola believes the 28-year-old will remain at the club, even though David Villa joined the La Liga champions earlier in the summer.
Despite reported interest from Manchester City, Raiola insists the Sweden international has no plans to depart.
He said: "Ibra won't move from Barcelona and I don't understand why he should do it. He does not want to leave Barcelona and the club doesn't want to let him go.
"He didn't achieve the end to the season which he expected but, until February, everything went well and I think it is an exaggeration to say that he should go away."
Meanwhile, veteran Rafael Marquez wants to hold talks with club coach Pep Guardiola about his future.
The Mexico international, who has been on World Cup duty in South Africa, is seeking answers about his future with the Camp Nou giants.
Marquez, 31, found himself down the pecking order last term with Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique the preferred central defensive pairing with Sergio Busquets and Yaya Toure battling it out for a midfield anchor role.
Speaking to TV3, he said: "I am going to have a conversation with the coach to ask him about my future because, watching what happened to me last year, when I didn't have too much participation, I want to know if now I am in the plans of the coach or not.
"I will have to have a conversation with Guardiola. After that conversation I will know if I continue where I am or not. And if there is a chance for me to leave I will leave."
