Ibra signs for Barca

Zlatan Ibrahimovich has finally signed for Barcelona after a long-running transfer saga that has rivalled John Terry’s will-he-won’t-he flirtation with Man City in sheer tedium.

The Swede has signed for the Catalan giants for a ridiculous fee, with them inexplicably sending uber striker Samuel Eto’o, Alexander Hleb on loan and €46million to Italian champions Inter. For once in their history the nerazzuri have actually made a good deal, swapping a choker with a big time player and getting a sackload of cash in the process.

Hleb has struggled to make any sort of impression at the Nou Camp (or Camp Nou, if you’re being picky), and Inter will have an option to buy him for €10million at the end of the loan deal.
