No Spanish interest in Ibrahimovic says agent

Sunday 08 December 2013 05:44

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent has said that there is no interest from Spain in the Internazionale striker's signature.

Real Madrid and Barcelona had been rumoured to be interested in signing the Sweden international, but his agent, Minio Raiola, has revealed that he has not been contacted by either club.

"Real Madrid and Barcelona have not been in touch with me. If someone comes to an agreement with Inter by August 30 then we will make a move," Raiola told GR Parlamento.

"If an offer was made then it did not come through me.

"I have not heard from president Massimo Moratti, and there is no need to. Everything is tranquil.

"The player is on holiday with his family and he is fine, despite what is being said."

Meanwhile, Inter defender Douglas Maicon insists he has no wish to leave the club and is happy to remain at the San Siro.

Maicon has reportedly attracted interest from Chelsea and Real Madrid, but the full-back has reassured Inter fans that he will be staying with Jose Mourinho's side.

"I have a contract until 2013," he told after Brazil's Confederations Cup final triumph.

"I'm sure that we will reach an agreement, but we must still talk to each other."

Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale's agent has denied that his client is on the verge of joining Parma.

The 32-year-old former Empoli star scored 16 goals in all competitions for Udinese last term.

The player's agent, Bruno Carpeggiani, told tuttomercatoweb: "I don't know if Di Natale is close to joining Parma. If so nobody has informed me.

"Even if the two clubs have met to negotiate, I know that he is fine in Udine and he wants to stay there."

Parma are keen to sign a new forward after winning promotion from Serie B last term.
