PSG must go to £50 MILLION-A-YEAR to land Man Utd ace Rooney

PSG would have to pay Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney around £50 MILLION-A-YEAR to bring him to France. The Daily Mail says Nike would welcome the move, but France's ridiculous tax laws threaten any deal.

The crippling 75 per cent income tax on France's high earners means PSG have to pay Ibrahimovic €55million a year (£47.5m) for the Sweden striker to take home the annual €13m that brought him to Paris.

A similar package would be needed for Rooney's advisers to contemplate a move - and even PSG's Qatari backers might baulk at a deal that would mean spending the club's entire annual turnover on two players.
