The swedish also explained how he knew his agent: "A mobster? It sounds good..."
Zlatan Ibrahimovic pleased to go to Madrid to Sandro Rosell, when Barcelona wanted to sell him. In his autobiography "I am Zlatan", the player explain this and other anecdotes.
The Sport newspaper has revealed some interesting parts of the book:
When he signed for Barcelona
"Moratti surprised me, because he was cooperative. He only wanted to sell me for more money than Milan sold Kaka to Madrid. That meant that I was the second most expensive transfer of the football story, and Joan Laporta didn't have any problem. Moratti and him arrived to a fast agreement. I was close to faint when I knew the numbers of the transfer".
When he leaved Barça
"Rosell told me:
- Which team you want to go.
- To Madrid- I answered.
He became pale and assured that is to be big traitor to leave a player go from Barcelona to Madrid.
- No. That's not possible. Any option except this one.
He was trembling. Mino and I had it really clear. We were playing our match and I was really calmed: "You made me a question and I'm giving you an answer. I'm happy to say that Madrid is the only squad where I see myself playing. I like Mourinho, but you have to call and tell them. Is it right?". I said.
Barcelona started to negotiate with Milan for 40 million. Rosell had the pressure to take the money back, but If I was sold to Madrid, he would be attacked for the supporters. It was not an easy situation for him. Thanks to one person, my prize fell 50 millions euros, and I could go to Milan that is what I wanted".
