Milan - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he told Spanish giants Barcelona he wanted to leave them for Real Madrid in 2010.
Ibrahimovic, 30, joined Barca after a spell at Inter Milan in a part-exchange deal with Samuel Eto'o in 2009. His stint at the Camp Nou began well, but he quickly lost form and fell out with manager Pep Guardiola before being moved on to AC Milan.
The Sweden forward has in the past been critical of Guardiola and has recently been in the spotlight with remarks in his autobiography about the coach he labels 'the philosopher'.
There were even remarks around Ibrahimovic wanting to beat up Guardiola.
