The Sun says he has been accused of owing Paris Saint-Germain money as his pay dispute with his former club rumbles on.
Manchester United striker Ibrahimovic is still waiting to be paid the final 30 per cent of his salary by the French champions.
But it has now been claimed PSG are refusing to settle his wages until Ibrahimovic himself pays back money on an agreement made four years ago.
L'Equipe say when the 34-year-old moved to Paris from AC Milan in 2012 he was hit with an unpaid tax bill by Italian authorities.
It is claimed PSG agreed to meet the cost of the demand on the proviso Ibrahimovic paid them back - but that the player has yet to do so.
