Ibra going nowhere, says agent

The agent of Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says his client will be staying at the Catalan club, despite speculation linking the player with a move to AC Milan or Manchester City.

Ibrahimovic failed to convince in his debut season at the Nou Camp and his place in the Barca line-up has come under increased pressure following the signing of Spain striker David Villa this summer.

Nevertheless, Mino Raiola says the player is committed to Barca.

"Ibrahimovic is not moving," he told Sky Italia.

"Zlatan is a great player who is liked by many clubs, but nothing changes. He is and will be a Barcelona player."

Milan chief Ariedo Braida had earlier talked up a move for the former Internazionale forward, but Raiola says a deal will not happen.

"We like Braida's words, but the thing stops there," he said.
