Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has admitted Rafael Marquez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's futures at the club depend on themselves. The duo have been tipped to leave the La Liga powerhouse, but Guardiola would be happy to see them remain at the club next term. Speaking to reporters, he said: "Marquez's future depends on him. After everything he has given the club, he will be the one to decide his future. "Ibrahimovic had a really good season last year. He will decide his future - he is a special player. "I have not spoken with the previous president or the new one to put him on the market. "If he stays, he is a player who needs to continue to be important for us. He will decide what to do with his agent."
