Barcelona Want Nigel de Jong To Be Included In Manchester City's Offer For Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Report

Barcelona want Netherlands hard man Nigel de Jong to be included in Manchester City's offer for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to El Mundo Deportivo.

De Jong, 25, is expected to lose his starting spot to ex-Barca man Yaya Toure next season. With the World Cup 2010 finalist not keen on spending time on the sidelines, Barcelona have targeted him to fill in for the Ivorian next season.

City are understood to be willing to consider the offer, with ex-Espanyol utility player Pablo Zabaleta also interesting them. Ibrahimovic is rumoured to be ready to make the switch to Eastlands if his exorbitant £250,000 a week contract demands are met.
