Zlatan Ibrahimović voices desire to stay at Barcelona

Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimović has spoken of his desire to stay at Barcelona despite mounting speculation he could be moving on this summer.

The 28-year-old joined the Catalan giants from Inter Milan last year in a deal worth €75 million but he had a mixed first season at the Camp Nou, ending the campaign on the bench.

Barcelona then signed Spain striker David Villa from Valencia, fuelling speculation that Ibrahimović was on his way out.

However, Ibrahimović insists he won't be leaving Barcelona this summer.

"During the summer, many clubs have been mentioned, but we haven't spoken to any of them," he told a news conference in Oslo ahead of a friendly against Norwegian side Vålerenga.

"When you play at the highest level, there are rumours every day because they need to sell papers.

"I have four years left on my contract. It is nice praise that other clubs are interested in me, but I am very happy at Barcelona and only hope to continue here."
