Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become the highest paid player in the game's history after his move to PSG.

Paris St Germain agreed to pay him £220,000-a-week — AFTER TAX - to take him from AC Milan.

The Sweden striker, 30, sealed an £18million move to France from AC Milan.

PSG are funded by oil-rich Qataris and are desperate to do a Manchester City and buy their way to a first title since 1994.

Ibrahimovic said: “It’s true I don’t know that much about Ligue 1 — but Ligue 1 knows who I am!”

French president Francois Hollande intends to impose a 75 per cent tax rate on anyone earning more than a £784k a year.

But Zlat’s agent Mino Raiola wangled a deal that gets him paid at least £9.4million a year — even after the Government’s cut.

That rises to £11.4m- a-year if bonus targets are met — meaning a whopping £220,000 straight into his account.
