Ibrahimovic joined Barca last summer in a deal that saw Inter Milan get 46 million euros plus Samuel Eto?o (valued at 20 million euros) in exchange for the giant Swede, but the former Ajax and Juventus hitman has had a mixed first season with the Catalan giants. He scored 16 league goals as Barca defended their Primera Division title but he also came in for criticism from some quarters. Barca have now strengthened their striking options for next season after agreeing a 40million euros deal for Spain star Villa, who is set to undergo a medical and complete his move from Valencia tomorrow. However, that does not mean the exit door is now open for Ibrahimovic, with Laporta saying: ?Ibra is not for sale. He is a very highly-valued player, and I know the coaches count on him. The signing of Villa does not affect the future of Ibra.? Meanwhile, the Blues are also being linked with Argentina Under-20 international Ezequiel Munoz, of Boca Juniors. The 20-year-old central defender has been pursued by Italian outfit Fiorentina for a year. Should City go for Ibrahimovic?
