Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will 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.
