Citeh have reportedly offered a 96m contract worth 500,000 pw over four years to Zlatan and that's not even including the transfer fee Eek Not sure if I should laugh or cry http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepag...-Zlatan-Ibrahimovic-a-500000-a-week-deal.html MANCHESTER City have offered Zlatan Ibrahimovic a four-year deal worth a staggering £96MILLION - or roughly £500,000 a week. The mega-deal would make the Barcelona striker the highest-paid footballer in the world, earning £24m a year. That dwarfs the salaries of top stars such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. City representatives made their mouth-watering offer direct to Ibrahimovic's manager Mino Raiola to show how much they want to capture the Swedish international. The huge deal dwarfs the 11m euros a year the striker picks up at the Nou Camp. Ibrahimovic is unsettled at Barca despite joining only last summer in a 50m euro deal that also took Samuel Eto'o from Barcelona to the San Siro. The enigmatic forward fell out with Barca coach Pep Guardiola in February and the pair barely speak now. Ibrahimovic is upset he has not been a regular starter and he has clashed with his coach over Barca's style of play. So the chance to be involved in building a new club to rival Europe's best is an attractive proposition, especially with such a salary on offer. The striker is familiar with City boss Roberto Mancini after the pair's time together at Inter Milan. A source close to Ibrahimovic said: "City have shown how much they want Zlatan and although he is well paid at Barcelona this offer is in a different league. "It has given him plenty to think about especially when he is not so happy with his football at Barca. "The idea of being part of a move to create a new super club to challenge the very best in Europe is also attractive. "City have to agree a deal with Barcelona before this can go any further - but there's a feeling that could all happen fairly quickly now." Unsettled Brazilian star Robinho could move to Barcelona as a makeweight in the deal. Ibrahimovic's arrival would raise more questions about the futures of strikers Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor, Roque Santa Cruz and Craig Bellamy as City continue their spree.
