PSG make Ibrahimovic highest paid in game's history

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.
