Ibrahimovic set to make debut against Man City

Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make his Barcelona debut in a friendly against Manchester City on Wednesday after recovering from a hand fracture.

"He's in good shape and we are planning on him (Ibrahimovic) playing a part," coach Pep Guardiola said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Ibrahimovic joined from Inter Milan last month in a swap deal with Samuel Eto'o but has been sidelined following surgery to the injury he sustained while on tour in the United States with the Italian champions.

Forward Lionel Messi, who had a thigh muscle strain, has also been given the all-clear to play in the Joan Gamper Trophy match, the club's traditional pre-season curtain raiser at the Nou Camp.

French pair Thierry Henry and Eric Abidal were unable to complete a full training session after they picked up minor injuries in Sunday's Spanish Super Cup first-leg win over Athletic Bilbao, the club said.

Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta and Mexico defender Rafael Marquez joined the rest of the squad for the start of the session as they near the end of their recovery from injury, they added on their website (www.fcbarcelona.cat).

However, Guardiola said he probably would not be able to count on them for the European Super Cup match against Shakhtar Donetsk in Monaco on August 28.
