Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals “Pep Guardiola hasn’t spoken to me for six months. Milan? I’d like to play with Ronaldinho.”
The Swede is at the centre of intense negotiations for a transfer to San Siro and played in Barcelona’s 1-1 draw against the Rossoneri last night. The Spaniards won the Gamper Trophy 4-2 on penalties.
“Guardiola has not spoken to me for six months,” he told Sky Italia television.
“He only did so twice. I would like to understand why, but he won’t tell me. I need to be happy. I’m fine in Barcelona, but I have problems with the Coach.
"The directors tell me they don't want me to go, but at the same time how can I continue here when the manager doesn't speak to me?
“Milan? I don’t know at what stage the negotiations are, but I would like to play with Ronaldinho.”
Vice-President Adriano Galliani confirmed to the official Milan website that he will have another meeting with Barcelona patron Sandro Rosell at midday local time.
It’s reported the Rossoneri wish to take Ibra on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, splitting his €12m wages between the clubs.
Barcelona requested €30m plus Marco Borriello, but Galliani declared there would be no players in exchange.
