Ibrahimovic set for Barcelona debut

SWEDEN striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make his Barcelona debut in a friendly against Manchester City today after recovering from a hand fracture.

"He's in good shape and we are planning on him (Ibrahimovic) playing a part," coach Pep Guardiola said yesterday. Ibrahimovic joined from Inter Milan last month in a swap deal with Samuel Eto'o. Forward Lionel Messi, who had a thigh muscle strain, has also been given the all-clear to play in the Joan Gamper Trophy match, the traditional pre-season curtain raiser at the Nou Camp.
