Zlatan Ibrahimovic Was in his day one of the signings more ilusionantes of the FC Barcelona. More than 40.000 souls attended to his presentation in the Camp Nou, and in spite of that finished the season with more than 20 goals annotated, never finish to converge with Pep Guardiola, what caused his early course after so only a season in the Barcelona group.

Ibrahimovic, in any case, has spoken in his autobiography on an anecdote arisen hardly some days before closing his signing by the FC Barcelona, in summer of 2009. 'The Gazzetta dello Sport' has published some extracts of the biography of the Swedish forward, in which 'Ibracadabra' narrates a curious anecdote before fichar by the Barcelona, in a conversation with Maxwell.

When both players found still in the Inter of Milan, Maxwell already did the cases to leave to Barcelona, since his signing by the group culé was closed. In this moment, Ibrahimovic predicted his own future, although perhaps he knew also that it would not take in accompanying to the Brazilian course to the Camp Nou.

"Whereas Maxwell collected his things, gave him my boots and said him: 'Carry them to Barcelona, will join me prompt'. All put to laugh, thought that it kidded. Two days later, the Barça invited me to an official meeting and to the cape of some 20 minutes, already was a 'Blaugrana'", remembers the díscolo Swedish footballer on the previous days to his signing by the Barça.

To more than a Barcelona follower would have loved him that Ibrahimovic and Guardiola had got along, and that the ariete had continued a lot of more years in the FC Barcelona. There is not doubt of his innate qualities and that it has been a forward of legend, but the reality is that the fight of egos with Pep Guardiola did not favour his continuity.

The Barça did not need to Ibrahimovic to win

And, after his course, the FC Barcelona heaved with the UEFA Champions League 2010-11 and left clear that did not need him to follow winning. With Leo Messi and the hard core of the team, the group trained by Pep Guardiola had sufficient to follow imposing his law. Although a year later, in 2012, would be the technician of Sampedor the one who would finish doing the cases.
