If Joan Laporta had known what a blooming ball-ache the Mad Sammy EtoÃ¢ÂÂo for Mad Zlatan Ibrahimovic transfer was going to be, then the tantrum-throwing titan of the Camp Nou probably wouldnÃ¢ÂÂt have bothered with the swap. Not only has the ceaseless saga irked Pep Guardiola, the local press and a good chunk of the Barcelona faithful, but if the details of the reported deal are correct, then it could also turn out to be the biggest waste of money since Jesus Navas splashed out on a round-the-world air ticket. Laporta has even handed the opportunity to the Madridista papers of allowing them to take an evening stroll along the moral high ground - no mean feat - by throwing them the raw meat of a deal that could be worth 45m euro, plus EtoÃ¢ÂÂo, plus Alexander Hleb - rounding things up to an estimated 90m. Ã¢ÂÂEach club has the freedom to pay what it considers right for a player,Ã¢ÂÂ grinned an immensely smug BarÃÂ§a-supporting editorial in Marca last week, in response to club director Xavier Sala i Martin insisting that Ã¢ÂÂwe will never spend 60m on one footballer,Ã¢ÂÂ and LaportaÃ¢ÂÂs constant grumblings over MadridÃ¢ÂÂs Ã¢ÂÂimperialisticÃ¢ÂÂ spending. The problem for Barcelona is that sealing this Swap Shop style deal has been like trying to understand JosÃÂ© Antonio Reyes eating a mouthful of meatballs - almost impossible. Apparently, the easy part of the transfer has already been tied up with both Inter Milan and Zlatan himself agreeing to the terms of the deal. The trickier part has been manoeuvring EtoÃ¢ÂÂo over the Med to Milan. The Cameroon striker is currently in a win-win-win-win situation.
