doubt it

Possible. As princeofsand said, Camp Nou has bigger capacity than Santiago Bernabeu. Also, Barca means alot more than just ordinary football club to catalans and I'm sure they'd show their support on proper opportunity. Besides, Zlatan is more respected among football fans than CR, imho.

Yeah....:lol: Come on what did you expect? When I first got to THIS forum I was a real pain in the ass too. And it hasn't changed much since.:lol: In fact i'm a pain in the ass on every forum. You should see some of the discussions I have with Milan fans arguing Ibra vs Kaka.:D

Laporta says the deal will be done within a few hours according to swedish media :S Probably bullshit

edit: their source is sport though but I can't read spanish :p

Fortunately I can.

Laporta tells the site that the terms of the transfer have been agreed, and that Ibra has agreed with Barcelona his terms.

He hopes for an agreement b/t Inter & Eto'o very soon. (hours)

He said that both the coach Mourinho and Moratti are very keen on him and that Eto'o is going to one of hte best clubs in the world.

Well, well, well....


I said all along Zlatan is a done deal for Barcelona, and now Laporta seems to have just confirmed exactly that.



Amazing how people here have been consistently WRONG when I have been consistently RIGHT, isn't it?. Thanks to the ones who did believe in me already back in June. To the others.. sometimes an eyewitness is worth more than Goal.com and that's your lesson. lol



In a TV interview Laporta has apparently said that the Zlatan deal will go through even if the Eto'o deal won't be a part of it, just like I said. I knew this Eto'o/Zlatan bit was fake and that the Zlatan deal was made long before today, but people here didn't want to listen..oh, well.. lol



LAPORTA: ETO'O NOT A FACTOR FOR IBRA DEAL:

In an interview with Spanish network TV3, Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta said that he is confident to sign Swedish forward Zlatan "Ibra" Ibrahimovic from Inter MIlan within the next few days regardless of Samuel Eto'o. Laporta explained that the deal can go through even if Eto'o would eventually decide to refuse joining Inter.

Well if it's going to happen, im glad it's getting done fast... We must move on.

Adam
19 Jul 09, 20:58
I agree. At least we have a full month to train without Ibra. I just hope however we get arrives fast so he can be a part of our pre-season.

When I think about it Cassano is still a risky fucking signing. Brilliant footballer but he always causes trouble. Even at Sampdoria. Will Mourinho be able to control him, and will he bench him when he get's out of control? Will we be able to afford that? The Adriano benchings almost screwed up the beginning of our last season.

It's the best choice for us IMO and I'd love to see him here. He'd be my new favourite Inter player instantly, but he's still a huge risk.

Alessandro
19 Jul 09, 21:01
When Ibra leaves, we will need a new symbol on the field and Cassano would be perfect. We all know he's Interista and would play always for the badge... Plus he wants the Azzurri jersey so badly. I have no doubt the he will not let us down.

He's versatile aswell... He can play behind the strikers and as a wing forward. We need a striker like that.

Man it just hit me: I've been so preoccupied with the thought of seeing Ibra play attacking football, which is something I've wanted to see for the last 6 years, that it kind of slipped my mind I'm not gonna get to see him play for Inter anymore. It makes me sad.

And tomorrow I gotta go to my new workplace where there's a girl I've know for a week who I've fallen in love with, the first time that's happened to me in maybe ten years, and who I can't have. *sigh* It's great being me.

Sure, we have all seen the lineup of world class talents standing outside our club headquarters every day.

I am still hoping that Valencia decide to sell Villa, so Barca forgets about Ibra once again.

Zlatan said he waits a call from Barcelona. So it's all down to Eto'o making the decision. When he accepts the deal, Zlatan flies to Barcelona immediately. He doesn't know if he will play against Chelsea or not.

To me it's quite bizarre that he continues to feature in this friendlies when there's a transfer pending. What if he gets injured? If he gets seriously injured? Do Barcelona still make the deal?

It's really funny how Eto'o will earn more at Inter than what Ibra earns at Barcelona, DESPITE the fact that in Spain foreigners have a serious eased taxation (for foreigners with 5y or longer contract 23% vs Italy 43%). So Inter will pay ~15m€ per season to have Eto'o while Barca pay 9m€ per season to have Ibra if those salary figures are correct eventually. This tax cheating sucks. :rolleyes:

edit. 5 year or longer contract.

England is going to have the same issue come next April. Tax rates there for footballers are going to be 50% same as in Italy. Only spain has this ridiculous advantage.

Guardiola just gave a press conference, here's what he said according to goal:

"Inter have the money to make Eto'o happy, but if he wants to stay then I will have no problem with that," the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"If Samuel stays then we will continue with him and without Ibrahimovic.

"Ibrahimovic is a different player to Eto'o and he is world-class too."

Great!! :|

I think both coaches are damn fed up with this saga as both would want to have their key players confirmed so that they can have a proper pre-season.
I too am fed up and still ambivalent about the deal, meaning either way I just want an ending to it all. :grumpy:

Like how Ibra said Mancio found him a new role and is utilizing himself better than Capello? or Adri saying Mancio is like a big brother to him? or cuchu, Maicon, JC, Deki etc.

What is different is what you say officialy after you don't work for this boss. Till this day 90% of all the players Jose coached has talked about him in great manner.

Who from Chelsea said is happy Jose left ? Noone. Who said is happy after Mancio left... ?

The only player I know was complaining at Jose was Makelele couple years after, although it seems idiotic to say, as Makelele was a pivotal person in Joses tactics.

Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic is still a player of Inter. However, his arrival depends on Eto'o. Can we get him even without the departure of Cameroonian? We are rich, but not so much. And then it would also be a bad deal.

20 Jul 09, 12:45
Well, it does seem that the deal will go through, but like I said before...when you have so many different parties having to agree on terms, the chances of the deal failing is much higher than it being a success. I just absolutely loved the way Balotelli, Ibra, and Milito played together last night, and it really made me think of what a lethal combo Ibra and Milito could be...


That being said, I am one who does not consider Eto'o just a poacher, I have seen him score goals that can absolutely mirror ones of Ibra...Either way I feel we will be very strong next year, but for some reason I really want to be wearing an Ibra-10 jersey next year... lol

20 Jul 09, 12:47
Damn, we cant really this thing drag out much longer. If we are selling Ibra, we need to do it NOW otherwise we are not going to have enough time finding his replacements.

Since we need more than one player to successfully replace him, pre season will be very important for all these new players to gel.

classexa
20 Jul 09, 12:49
Yeah, I think Eto'o is gonna be a problem and I'm just fine with Ibra staying. I can't wait to see what Ibra, Balo and Milito can cook up for next season. And with Motta in the midfield, this can be a very fun season

On the other hand, it will be interesting to see Eto'o at Inter and see if he can be the scoring beast he was at Barca

Here's my take. Eto'o says "I decide if the deal happens or not". The reason he says that is because he really can't stand the notion he's used as a makeweight. He wants to give the impression that he's in control, not Ibra, not Moratti and definitly not Laporta and Guardiola. Basicly what he's trying to do is save face.

In saying that though he put Barca at a difficult position and Laporta therefore reacts by saying "We will get Ibra regardless of Eto'o" acting as if Eto'o is insignificant in the matter and he has no power to control what happens, trying to push Eto'o to agree. In saying that though Laporta once again makes Eto'o look bad, therefore Guardiola's latest comments "I think it's best for Eto'o to leave" but also "He can stay and there won't be problems" and "we won't buy Ibra without Eto'o" is just a way to massage Eto'o's ego and make him feel like the one in charge again.

That's all there is too it in my opinion. Eto'o will sign for Inter and Ibra will go the other way. It's as done a deal as could be. Complicated and full details, yes, but a done deal nonetheless.

Well explained, I agree with you XL. The problem I see here is the "golden handshake" Eto'o and Mesalles will demand from Barcelona. Laporta might not be too happy with it. Probably he will eventually accept, as long as it isn't some 10m€, but 5m€ or so like suggested in the media. Hopefully this can go through fast. But it remains to be seen if Eto'o will come to Inter America tour at all? I think the tour ends after the derby against Milan in Boston on Sunday.

Ya, that probably is the biggets stumbling block at this point. I don't follow the transfer rumors as religiously as you Cafe but are you sure he's only demanding 5 mil from Barca? I could of sworn I read he wanted 15-20. On the other hand it was goal.com so...

If it's only 5 I think Barca should just pay it to get rid of him and end this thing.

The media were referring to the signing bonus city offered him to sign for them. They offered him €25 million and €13 million a season but he still rejected them.

CafeCordoba
20 Jul 09, 14:02
Yeah, and demanding around 20m€ from a real club (not like ManCity) would be considered quite a hilarious from any aspect. Even 5m€ is pretty much considering that it's almost Eto'o's salary for next season he would get if he stayed. But I think Laporta will pay him, if the demand is something like that. It's good for Inter, it might mean we don't have to pay any significant signing in bonus to Eto'o and his agent (surely something but not much).

Money post...You pretty much hit the nail on the head with that one...Eto'O will want to decide for himself rather than be 'railroaded' into any decision...I continue to also say that he'd much rather see Barca get as little as possible in his departure...Some say ego, I say petty on his part...Either way, it's all down to him.

Laporta, has been phenomenal for Barca but while a lawyer, he's a diehard Barca fan and football junkie...He often times does not say the 'right thing' in interviews (Surprising for a lawyer, eh? :lol: )...He need to learn to shut up when a microphone in his face...Pep today basically negating what Laporta already said makes him look a fool...Which basically was that that Zlatan will not be bought if Samu kills the sale and remains for his last season.

As for it going down and being finalized, we'll see tomorrow as Samu's agent etc. meet with Inter on Tuesday...Knowing Samuel the way I have, I continue to feel he's going to kill the deal...Just my gut feeling...At this point, I hope he doesn't but I sense very acutely that if he believes Barca comes out looking perhaps 'better' with Ibra in the swap he'll kill it for that reason alone...Sounds childish, I know, but Eto'O has a big ego for this sort of thing...If the deal 'sounded' like Inter was getting the better of the deal, he'd go forward...So I think part of the sales job will come down to Inter's brass and Mourinho talking to him.

We'll see...Despite all parties being on board for this mega deal, with Samu the lone exception - I put the chances of this going through at 35%

Are you sure about this? Because I'm sure this won't go through if Barcelona won't give in anything for Eto'o. Like you and XL have suggested it's about saving the face and keeping the ego up. Some kind of golden handshake should be reasonable for this, but maybe Laporta's ego is equally big?

There's never any real certainty of how some of these things go but as stubborn and as much pride as Samu shows, the club is similar too...Laporta would be hard pressed to give in to what has been deemed petulant demands from a player of Samu's ilk...Particularly in light of how successful the past season has been, Laporta and Txiki are coming off a high and are in the black financially...To succumb to the pressure of a player they can't even sell by giving him money to leave when he'd go free next summer?...I feel pretty confident it'd never happen.

Truth is, as a fan, I'm not sure I'd want it to happen either...The club has been held 'over the barrel' in the past with some players and money issues...Laporta & Co. decided long ago not to be put in that position again and be mindful of the 'Més que un club' motto.

We'll see but any other player, I'd say this deal is going to go through...Samu? :wallbang:

Reading through more or less every page in this thread, I still keep wondering how you can't be more sad that Ibra's leaving. I don't mean to be negative or anything, but it feels like Inter kind of lost their face if this deal comes through.

At least this video made me cry:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmfO9XyY9YI

Another thing I reacted to was that so many complained that he's a choker in the big games. Just how many of those have Inter played the past years? And are you really serious about saying Ibra's at fault for everything? He was the one creating all the chances for Inter, for himself or for others. I can't remember who it was against Man U for example who missed a half open goal after an amazing pass from Z. It has been Inter who has failed in those games, including Zlatan - but far from alone.

I for one can only wish him the best of luck, and thank him for all that he has done for this team the past years.

Yes, it is sad. It's end of one era at Inter. So we should just look forward now and concentrate on the future. Now it's time to build more balanced Inter, which shouldn't be as much dependent on one player it was with Ibra.

Really easy why I can't be sad. FC Inter is not FC Zltan. Players come and go and in zlatan's case we all knew he would decide to go sooner or later. So it was no shock to me that he decided to leave.

While I enjoyed every happy moment he provided as an inter player I never felt attached to him. He was not a player like zanetti,cambiasso or cordoba who I can say bleeds for the black and blue colours.

Hello all!

I'm a Barcelona fan, but I've always liked Inter. At a first time, I started to like it because of the shirt, I loved that neroazzurro colours! Now it's my favourite team apart from Barça.

I'd like to say that Eto'o is a great player. Maybe he has done some things that we, the supporters, didn't like, but in the pitch he has always done his best. He fights every ball and runs the 90 minutes in every match, his will to win makes him a predator.
Time will put Eto'o in his place, and I dare to say that he is the most important striker in Barcelona's history.
With this, I also have to say that Barça has to sell him now because his contract finishes next year and he would leave for free, so I think it's a good deal for both parts, maybe a bit expensive for Barça, but Ibra is world class.

If they finally make the deal, I wish the best for Eto'o and Inter, and hope to see you in Champions League final (in Bernabéu :D).

Visca el Barça and forza Inter!

FCBarca
20 Jul 09, 21:20
Well, again, IF the deal goes through Inter fans should at least take some comfort in knowing they will be getting a helluva footballer...Not too many Cules would fail to admit that they rate Eto'O as one of the best if not best strikers in the world...Perhaps not the same sort of disappointment in seeing him leave as Inter fans have with Ibra but it's a tough loss to see the 4th highest goal scorer in the club's history leave while still in his prime.

IF completed, you'll be getting a warrior of a player in addition to a skilled striker and I think most fans can always be encouraged by a player who will give it their all everytime they set foot on the pitch...Samu will do that

Apparntly Eto'o is asking for 12 million a season but Moratti is only willing to pay 9 and bonuses depending on how well he does.

http://www.fcinternews.it/?action=read&idnotizia=6657

12 mil? So he wants the same wage as Ibra...Way too much for a player that doesn't have Ibra's qualites and that is unproven in the Serie A. At Inter you have to earn such a wage, it's not something you get for just signing on.

Er...

In 50 years when people look back and see Inter with three straight scudettos they will instantly remember who lead us to those titles. Yada yada, team effort...but let's be honest here. Think back to that last day V Parma...we were no where until he came on.

If almost single-handedly leading a club to almost 20 percent of it's entire Scudetto wins does not qualify you as an Inter legend...then ouch.

Nyall
21 Jul 09, 01:31
Ibra is an Inter legend since Mancini is there. And that proves that you guys have really low standards for determining legends.

So according to your criteria he should go there without a poll.

tritolone
21 Jul 09, 01:50
Then who the fuck is a legend if he isn't????

If he doesnt qualify then of all our players in last 15 years only Zanetti and Bergomi do?

Let me just remind you that until Ibra came Zanetti has won one Uefa cup and that's it. You can't determine the legends only based on the number of appearances....

edit: I forgot one Coppa Italia

edit2: I don't understand all this disrespect he's getting here....He led us to at least two scudettos (we would most likely win the first two if he wasn't here), he was the best player in Italy for 2 years. We could play without any other player and still win, but we saw what was about to happen when he wasn't playing in the 07/08. And even from an economical point...we bought him for 25mil, lets say in three seasons he earned 35, that adds to 60mil, and we're selling him for equvivalent of 70mil. Now where did you see that before???

Nyall
21 Jul 09, 01:53
If you believe that Ibra is on the same level of Zanetti then you're deluded. Ibra came here for himself. Plays for himself and cares only about himself.

tritolone
21 Jul 09, 02:04
He surely isn't as loyal as Zanetti is and don't take this like I'm bashing Zanetti, but I think we'd win these scudettos without Zanetti and we wouldn't win them without Ibra.

And even of Ibra plays for himself...he brought us so much joy noone did at least in the 15 years since I support Inter.

Alex de Large
21 Jul 09, 02:14
It's not only about best players.

And yes, the only Inter legends in the last 15 years are Bergomi and Zanetti imo. The 90's and 00's hasn't been great times for the history of this team.

Blog:Losing a legend Inter should think twice before sacrificing the magic of Ibracadabra, states Scott Fleming
http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/imgs/whitebox.gif http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/blogs/ibramic460.jpg http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/imgs/whitebox.gif Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s impending transfer to Barcelona, if it goes through, is a catastrophe. Perhaps I’m getting carried away, but it’s just the way I feel.

The deal itself can’t be questioned. In fact, it’s difficult to believe the same club that surrendered Fabio Cannavaro to arch rivals Juventus for reserve ‘keeper Fabian Carini has brokered such excellent terms. A sizeable fee, reputed to be in the region of £40m, the services of Samuel Eto’o and the loan signing of Aliaksandr Hleb, all in exchange for Ibrahimovic.

Eto’o is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in the world, and arguably a more rounded, complete player than Zlatan, whereas the under-rated Hleb will add a bit of dynamism to a pedestrian midfield.

That I concede. Neither will I try and tell you that the transfer is some kind of death-knell for Serie A, or the dawn of a new austere, unglamorous era. I’m not interested in shirt sales, or foreign TV audiences, or Serie A’s marketability.

Sure it’s tough to see Kaka and Ibra, the two poster boys of Calcio in recent years, both depart in the space of a few months. However, any League containing such inspirational talents as Antonio Cassano, Francesco Totti and Mauro Zarate isn’t suddenly going to become unwatchable overnight. Besides as last season showed, there is a multitude of young talents already on the road to greatness throughout the Division.

No, instead I look at this topic quite simply from an entertainment perspective. Because while you could debate whether ‘Ibracadabra’ is the best player in Italy, you’d be hard pressed to say he isn’t the most entertaining.

He is unique. There is no one quite as flamboyant or audacious in their playing style, not just on the peninsula, but in Europe. During Serie A’s golden era of the early nineties British viewers were enchanted by the likes of Marco Van Basten. Ibrahimovic is my generation’s Van Basten, and as such the thought of him leaving has left me sobbing on to my computer screen. Well not literally, he’d have to join Chelsea for that to happen.

Ultimately Samuel Eto’o might end up scoring more goals than Ibra, but will they be backheels, or chips, or flicks? He may be arrogant, petulant, and, as Inter and Juventus fans have discovered to their cost, not very loyal, but Zlatan understands what the game is all about – and that’s entertainment.

Top 10 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Moments With Inter
http://i.media.goal.com/g/44079_news.jpg

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has brought Inter plenty of success on the domestic level, and since he joined the club they have won three consecutive Scudetti and two Italian Super Cups.

Arguably one of the best strikers on the planet, possessing strength, vision, excellent footwork, and great technical ability, the player has recently been subject to a mega-money bid from Barcelona - €45 million plus Samuel Eto'o and the loan of Aliaksandr Hleb.

With this transfer looking almost certain to go through, Goal.com looks back on Ibrahimovic's Top 10 moments in an Inter shirt.



10) Serie A Debut For Inter – 9 September 2006

Zlatan’s Serie A debut for Inter really couldn’t have gone any better. The superstar set up Esteban Cambiasso with a sublime turn and lay-off to open the scoring, before hitting a well-taken half-volley to bag the Nerazzurri’s third goal himself. Fiorentina found the net twice, but it was too little, too late, and it was the start of a beautiful friendship between the club and the player, acting as a sign of things to come.

9) 100th Serie A Match - 16 September 2007

Just a week later, the century mark was reached. After two previous season with Juventus, Ibrahimovic played in his 100th Serie A match at the outset of his campaign with the Milanese giants. It was a successful day for the Swede, as on the counter-attack he played a text-book through ball to left-winger Cesar, whose accurate shot ensured Inter won 2-0 against the Sicilians.

8) Breaks European Goal Drought – 2 October 2007

Zlatan has constantly been criticised for his lack of impact on the continental stage, but put in a match-winning performance against Dutch outfit PSV at the San Siro in a group stage match. First converting a penalty, he later showed great coordination by scoring a looping header into the guarded net from a Luis Figo cross for his second of the evening. That season he had five goals in seven Champions League matches, but Inter once again fell short in the knock-out stage against Liverpool.

7) Trouncing Of Roma – 19 October 2008

If Roma were considered challengers for the title the past two seasons, the ex-Ajax hero heaped plenty of misery on them to ensure they would be no trouble in 2008-09. After a poor start to the campaign, the Giallorossi were desperate for points, but the 27-year-old first beat the offside trap and chipped the onrushing goalkeeper Doni from outside the box, before bamboozling Juan and shooting low too add a second in a resounding 4-0 victory. The Romans were embarrassed on their home ground of the Stadio Olimpico.

6) Late Double Against Parma – 20 January 2008

Inter were runaway leaders in the Scudetto race at this point, but signs of struggle were beginning to tell, allowing Roma to begin to cut the gap. However, this match in particular kept their head above water. With the Gialloblu leading 2-1, Zlatan earned and converted a controversial penalty in the 88th minute, before poking home the winner in injury-time for a spectacular finish. In celebration, the lanky striker jumped on and toppled over then coach Roberto Mancini!

5) Silences San Siro Boo Boys – 2 May 2009

With the scores level at 0-0 against Lazio, the San Siro crowd were getting restless and began to whistle the thus far ineffective Ibrahimovic, but this only spurred him into life! Soon after the chorus of criticism, the ex-Juventus man took the ball, dribbled past one defender, and fired a rasping shot into the far side of the net – turning to the crowd and lifting his finger up to his mouth, gesturing for them to be quiet. Before the end of the contest, he set up Sulley Muntari to secure all three points in a 2-0 win.

http://i.media.goal.com/g/48216_hp.jpg
Shhhhh! | Silencing His Hometown Critics

4) Capocannoniere - 31 May 2009

The Swedish international gained his first Capocannoniere (Serie A top scorer) title at the tail end of the 2008-09 season by scoring twice in a 4-3 victory over Atalanta. His first goal saw him break the offside trap and calmly slot past shot stopper Andrea Consigli, before a second-goal that highlighted all of the man’s talents. He held off a defender while collecting a pass from Hernan Crespo and then hit a cheeky backheel into the bottom corner. Thus, he finished with 25 goals for the season, one ahead of Genoa hotshot Diego Milito (now his team-mate) and Bologna veteran Marco Di Vaio.

3) Inter’s First On The Pitch Scudetto Since 1989 – 22 April 2007

The Nerazzurri had been awarded the previous Serie A title as a result of the Calciopoli scandal, but won their first ‘Scudetto in campo’ or ‘championship on the pitch’ since 1989 when they beat Siena 2-1. Marco Materazzi scored the brace on this day, but Ibrahimovic made large contributions, 15 goals in 27 appearances, during the season as Inter tied a record by securing the Scudetto with five matches remaining.

2) Backheel Goal Against Bologna – 4 October 2008

A contender for goal of the season! Adriano crossed in the ball from the left at waist height and the Malmo-born player turned his back to goal and back-heeled the ball out of the air into the net leaving Bologna’s goalkeeper completely stunned and stranded en route to a 2-1 victory. He really lived up to his ‘Ibracadabra’ nickname with a piece of wonderful ingenuity that had the whole crowd on their feet.

1) Return To Clinch The Scudetto – 18 May 2008

http://i.media.goal.com/g/30565_hp.jpg
Perhaps the greatest moment of the talented forward came when he returned from injury to ensure that the Benemata won the Scudetto on the final matchday of the 2007-08 season. Coming on as a second-half substitute after a two month lay-off, the Swede skipped past the defence and hammered in a low long range shot to break the deadlock, before adding another to ensure Inter took home the grand prize and were unreachable by rivals Roma – who started the day just one point behind.

Let's put it this way.

J.Zanetti has always been a 7 or 8 (Out of 10 rating) player for us, for every fucking single season. He is a bigger legend for us than Zlatan for sure.

But Zlatan has been at least a 9 in the Serie A in the 3 seasons that he joined us. Does it make him a bigger legend than JZ? Undoubtedly not. Does he have a bigger IMPACT in Inter than JZ? I'd say yes.

No Zanetti could play for any team on this planet. One of the most consistent players I ever saw. He's 35 but shows no sign of getting old. He deserves credit more than anyone else in the last 15 years.

It would be like saying Puyol had just as big a hand in Barca's succes as Ronaldinho did when he was in his prime.

U can't question his qualities like this. Just because he stayed loyal with Inter and rejected many offers from Barca and Real many years ago, doesn't mean he wasn't good enough for them. In some ways he is an unique player too. Even that he was actually a RB in his career but he's playing at midfield for the last 3 years and although he's 35 he still is more effective than many other players in the team.

U have the same story with Gabriel Batistuta. He had many offers from all great clubs in his career but stayed loyal to Fiorentina till his last years of football and just left for Roma to finally win Scudetto. Do you say the same thing about him just because he stayed at Fiorentina for many years?! Absolutely no!

Ridiculous. Zanetti was if not the, then at least one of the best right backs in the World for the last 10 years. Just because a much younger Maicon is better right now it doesn't take anything away from what Zanetti has done, and can still do in that position.

You could reverse that argument and say which one got the loudest cheer at the stadium? Then you could go further and say Ibra was more loved than Zanetti because he always got the higher cheer. Cheering, booing: You can't use that as a definitive barometer. Del Piero was booed from Juve fans at one point in his career, and that was when he was pretty much already a legend for them.

Anyways, I'm not sure how you would determine who the most loved was but that ain't it. IMO, Ibra was loved, and still is, just not by all. I think you would struggle to find a single player in World football who splits opinions as much as him.

The biggest cheer I have ever heard from the GM came from Adriano's derby goals. I prefer to use booing as a barometer because Inter fan and in particular the North Curve seldom boo our players. So the fact that they booed our best player shows that they don't hold him that high as a symbol of teh club as it would be like booing the club.

Also, Zanetti's goal vs Roma got a really large pop as well.

Well first of, the CN denied on their website ever having booed him, and claimed it was a group of foreign fans. How typical to blame the foreigners. :D Furthermore they said that if any members of the CN did boo Ibra then maybe they should reconsider their membership. Quite a strong statement.

Second, like I already said Del Piero was booed once, he's Juve most loved player by far. Maldini was insulted by a section of the Curva in his last match for the club, and Maldini is also the most loved player in Milan, by far.

I don't see booing and cheering as a definitive baromoter. If you do then that's fine. I guess we just disagree Nyall.

might be a noob question but what if Etoo turns down our offer and remains his high salary demand? Would the whole saga collapse? or we might get cash in full for Ibra?

Inter seems to agreed on a stupid 10 m fee with Eto'o according to rumors. Although this seems to be alot for him, but seems the deal is gonna go through. Unless I donno what could happen if Inter didn't want to give up on such ridiculous demands!! I still hope it's not true.

"Also Zlatan is a good free kick taker who is more accurate than Alves and consistant than Xavi. "

:lol: hahahahha, NimA for now Ibra isn't professional for freekick's :P but you'll see for 1-2 years what Ibra will do with taking freekick's, he can't shoot with technique just shooting strong, and that's great from him, he'll be top 5 shooters for freekick, lol.

Maybe they looked freekick shooted by Ibra vs Palermo, Fiorentina and I don't think anymore :P but that freekicks are awesome, to be and 5 Buffon's in goal can't stop that shoot by IBRAcadabra.

Yeah those free kicks were more than great but he has to try like 20 free kicks so one or two of them go right! I was watching the second leg match against Liverpool two years ago with my friend and he was almost ROFL after we were missing all those free kicks one after another. I think if we had an expert we could win that match 10-1!!:rolleyes:

I mentioned this before but I can't see any circumstance where the club would give into that sort of demand...The deal may still go through but it won't include any sort of buyout to the player from Barca...The cajones on Mesalles & Eto'O to ask for such a thing too, eh?

Seeing that Eto'O never takes any fks for Barca, I don't think Zlatan will even get a shot at fks...Especially considering he'd have to wait in line behind Xavi, Alves, Marquez & Messi to even be considered.

Stefan they said that they are still negotiating with Eto'o over the golden handshake...



Negotiations on the transfer of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona and the "golden handshake" for Samuel Eto'o by the Catalan club are continuing, there has been no agreement or no breakage. "There is no news since yesterday - said the sources interviewed - the negotiations are following the course

Eto'o seems to b doin everything he can to fuck up this deal.............just take the 10 mill and sign Eto'o jeeeez

Moratti isn't goin to sell Ibra for anything less than 90 mill euros.......so i doubt if Eto'o doesn't agree and Barca has to resort to buyin Ibra in cash they won't get their man so i strongly believe that Barca will pay Eto'o the compensation

Eto'O is definitely not a winger...Very versatile, IMHO, but don't expect much on the wings from him.

For Cameroon, he doesn't always play as the centre forward and resembles more of an attacking mid setting up his teammates...Looks at times like a #10, to be honest....Impressive considering he's Cameroon's most dangerous player and faces the bulk of the defense's attention...Still, the wings is not a great place for him.

Favorite part of Samu's game is definitely his work rate, he is special, in that regard, for a striker...He will win a lot of balls as a result

In what aspect. I think a lot of people here are confusing performance on the pitch for Inter status.

And a lot of people here is confused in generally, you're one of them. How can Cordoba have higher status in Inter from Ibra?

Is he better player? No
Is he more important? No
Does he earns more money? No
Does fans loves him more? No
Can he bring us three scudettos in a row? No
Is he longer in the club? Yes

On that theory Alvaro Recoba is bigger legend from Ibrahimović too.

As I had expected, Eto'O may indeed scupper the deal...And if is killed, no chance of Barca paying 75 million let alone 50 for Zlatan - the deal will be off...My best guess is that Barca will either return for Villa or try to pry away Forlan

Eto'o + cash is better than 75 m. Plus Cassano is only 18 m that we can even catch him with players exchange without touching the money we get from Barca.

Agreed with NimA, Eto'o + cash is better than 75m, we also can buy Cassano and maybe any midfielder (give some money and any our player like Burdisso, Rivas, Mancini.. to exchange with player like Ribery or David Silva).

I much like to improve our midfield, because I don't care much with attack, we already have good attack with Milito, Balotelli, Suazo, also Eto'o will join with us if Ibra leaves, so I think need any great creative midfielder and we can buy Casano too.

Don't trust the source...Not Barca's policy any longer to go beyond their transfer budget (Which is at €45-50 million - total).

If Eto'O isn't part of the package and he doesn't agree to terms that DOESN'T include some golden handshake, the deal will be dead...Txiki will refocus on Forlan and Villa as a result
