Zlatan Ibrahimovic is keen to put pen to paper and finally become a Barca player and in an exclusive interview with Barça TV and fcbarcelona.cat he insisted: “I’ll be the happiest man in the world” when he’s confirmed as a member of Guardiola’s squad

Immediately on his arrival in Barcelona, Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke to the club’s official media and explained how thrilled he was to be coming to the club: “it’s hard to describe my feelings - everything seems to be all set, it just needs my signature. I’m really pleased and enjoying everything that’s happening - I really am very, very happy and when this is all settled I’ll be the happiest man in the world”.

“Who wouldn’t want to come to Barca?”

When I saw Barca were interested in me I told my manager to sort it out and he’s done a great job. Who wouldn’t want to come to Barca? I think any player would want to represent what is the best club in Europe and maybe the world. The best players have to be at Barca and I hope to be one of them”.

“I play like Barca do”

He believes he can bring plenty to the team, explaining: “ I’m coming here with the qualities everyone knows I have. I play a skillful game , as Barca do and I want to do as well as I have done at Inter. The people who know me as a player know what I can bring”.

The Swede is also clear that he’s coming to the Nou Camp to learn too though: “I want to learn how Barca play. There are champions in every position and I want to learn what I can from all of them”.

“Ready for anything”

Ibrahimovic concluded: “I’m coming here ready for anything and anything that I can bring will be great. I’ll give my best to give everyone something to enjoy”.

“Family man”
As to his private life, Ibrahimovic confided: “I’m a bit distant – a family man. People say I’m a bit boring because I like to stay at home with my two kids. I like to make people happy, if others are happy then so am I. I’m a professional footballer and a calm, easy going guy”.
