"I know agent Mino Raiola very well having negotiated with him before. I dealt with him over Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2010, for instance," Bartomeu told reporters.

"I had many meetings with Mino. In one, he told me: 'Ibra will punch Pep one of these days.'

"Mino is a very friendly and very funny guy but one must look at his pocket. He makes a living ridiculously well. He is a specialist at players changing teams."

Raiola is the agent of Paul Pogba who according to reports wants a move to Barcelona.
