Zlatan Ibrahimovic have join Barcelona as the two teams swap players. To secure Zlatan Ibhahimovic service Barcelona had to release Samuel Etoo , send Hleb to the Italian Club on loan and pay £40 million to the Inter Milan.
This is one among shock deals this summer if we compare Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Samwel Etoo performance in 2008/2009. The Cameron Striker Samwel Etoo was just one goal short (34 goals) compared to Atletico Madrid Uruguayan International forward, Diego Forlan who won pichichi last season with 35 goals. Etoo also scored 16 goals in 34 UEFA Champions league appearances, the most crucial one scored against Manchester United in Champions League final.
