Real Madrid deny Ibrahimovic speculations
This was declared by the Merengues sporting director, Jorge Valdano, who also denied that his club were interested in Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.
However, Valdano admitted that there are still two or three attackers which Real Madrid are following and who they will try to sign up in the coming weeks.
"We have been linked to Forlan and Ibrahimovic, but neither player will arrive," explained the director to Radio Marca.
"We are still searching for an attacker, we have two or three alternatives, but none of them are the Inter or Atletico Madrid player."
This means that the chances of Ibrhaimovic leaving are now diminishing, with Chelsea and Barcelona the only known suitors remaining.
Recently, Real Madrid have been linked to Juventus striker David Trezeguet, who could therefore be one of their objectives in attack.
