Mourinho expects Ibrahimovic to stay

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho does not expect any club to meet their asking price of 90million euros for striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Sweden international has been linked with Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid, who have already brought in Kaka and tabled a bid for Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

"After Real Madrid's moves, I don't think there will be a mad transfer market," Mourinho told the club's official website,

"No club will pay for Ibrahimovic his real value in the transfer market nor will they pay the same figure for him as Madrid have for Cristiano Ronaldo, although in football you can never say never."

Instead, Mourinho is optimistic Ibrahimovic, who was the top scorer in Serie A last season, will want to remain at the San Siro.

The 27-year-old is under contract with Inter until June 2013.

"He has enjoyed a good season with us and I don't think there are any reasons why he would not be happy with us," the Portuguese added.
