At least one Spanish daily is going the extra mile this morning and confirming Barcelona's signing of Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Inter Milan. Barcelona's main target from the onset of the transfer season, Ibra reportedly moves to Barca for a cool 40 million euros. And the one-year loan of Hleb. Wait for it....
AND Samuel Eto'o, who signs a 65 million euro contract over five years!!!! At thirteen million a season, Eto'o would be making one million more a season than Ibra did in his time at Inter.
So many questions - which team got the better deal? Which team just plain got better? Eto'o or Ibra? Who's rebuilding more effectively in Italy - Juve or Inter? How many of the world's top ten players will play in El Gran Clasico this year? Is the center of power shifting from England to Spain in one summer? Is the Serie A back on the ascent?
Look for these and other questions to be answered on FutbolNation in the coming days. But don't look for the Ibra news on ESPN or FoxSports - because when this post went up, it wasn't there yet.
