After we had just finished our recent signing session with Lionel Messi we popped next door for a chat with Barcelona's new €69m man Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Having just moved to the Catalan capital from Milan he hasn't bought a house yet so is currently living in the hotel where we conducted the signing. Having already won the Spanish Super Cup and UEFA Super Cup this season it looks like he will go on to add even more silverwear to his collection by playing in arguably the best team in world football.
He was in relaxed mood hanging out in the bar playing with his young family and happily posed for a shot with the icons.com. We discussed potential signed memorabilia opportunities and he was keen to join our roster of the world's best players. Sign up to the icons.com newsletter for any future news.l

So Jose Mourinho reckons that Ryan Giggs is the greatest ever Premiership player, better than Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Eric Cantona.
The Special One should know a thing or two given the number of trophies he won with Chelsea and the way his Inter Milan side are running away with this year's Scuddeto.
But is he right? Here is Icons' top five Premiership players:
5. Steven Gerrard. They say that no player is bigger than the team. Have they not heard of Stevie G?
4. Frank Lampard. Still holds the record for an outfield player of 164 consecutive appearances. A phenomenon.
3. Eric Cantona. Turned Manchester United into the all-conquering force they are today.
2. Alan Shearer. 260 Premiership goals. Will anyone ever beat that?
1. Ryan Giggs. Well no-one ever won an argument with the Special One did they?
We've had our turn. Now it's yours...
