Agent Gives Reassurances Over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Barcelona Future Following David Villa Arrival

Raiola says Ibra stays put...
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola has offered reassurances that the Barcelona hitman will not leave following the arrival of David Villa from Valencia.

Barcelona announced the signing of Villa earlier, and it wasn't long before rumours grew louder over a quick exit for the Sweden striker. A move to reunite with former boss Roberto Mancini at Manchester City was touted by reports.

However, Raiola has made it clear his client's future has not been endangered by the Blaugrana's high-powered move.

"The club already said they were happy with Zlatan. Villa's arrival has nothing to do with Ibra and it does not put his stay in danger seeing that Villa can play well on the wings," Raiola told

"He [Ibrahimovic] has a contract until 2014 and he is happy at Barcelona."
