Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent on Wednesday denied that his client is looking for a move away from Inter Milan.
Ibrahimovic sparked speculation about his future on Sunday when he said after his two-goal starring role in Inter’s 3-0 home win over Reggina:
“I’m totally focused on winning the title but as for next season, we’ll see. “I’m very happy to be at Inter but next year we’ll see.”
Inter president Massimo Moratti responded on Monday by saying:
“I can’t imagine Inter without Ibrahimovic. “But if that were to happen, it would not stop the club from carrying on.”
Ibra is a reported target for Barcelona but Raiola told Radio Radio that the Sweden striker, who Italian media claim to be the highest paid player in Serie A, will be going nowhere.
“People are talking about convincing Zlatan to stay but no-one has said he is leaving,” said Raiola. “Zlatan has a great relationship with Moratti. There’s no reason for them to have a meeting (to discuss his future). Moratti was right when he said that we’ve given bait to the newspapers and the media to develop a story which for now doesn’t exist. If I or Zlatan or (Inter coach Jose) Mourinho don’t say anything Italy stops talking about football.”
Raiola also dismissed speculation that Ibrahimovic has set demands for staying with Inter.
“Zlatan has never asked for reinforcements or more money and anyone who says otherwise is a liar,” he added.
