Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent has rubbished reports suggesting his client made disparaging remarks about Mario Balotelli and Barcelona.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker was said to have branded his former employers and Manchester City's fiery frontman - who he played alongside at Inter Milan - as "mediocre" and suggested that they would work well together.

His representative - also Balotelli's agent - insists that no interview has taken place and that Ibrahimovic is a big fan of the Italian and his mercurial talents.

"This is a total invention by those looking to spread false news," Mino Raiola told Sky Sports 24.

"Zlatan has never spoken to any Spanish site and has never said these things about Barcelona or Balotelli.

"He believes Mario is among the best forwards in the world and has the potential to be the very best."
