Chelsea prepare £215,000-a-week contract to lure 30-goal striker

Chelsea are preparing a pre-contract offer that will see Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic earn £215,000-a-week if he joins them at the end of the season, Metro reports.

Ibrahimovic was heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes during the summer, but the Sweden international decided to remain in Ligue-1 and run out his contract that ends next summer.

This means that any club can come in with a pre-contract offer in January and secure his services before the start of next season.

The likes of AC Milan, Arsenal, and even Manchester United have been mooted to be keen on ‘Zlatan’, but English champions Chelsea are hoping to beat them with an offer worth £215,000 a week.

It has been recently speculated that the 34-year-old is hoping to return to Serie A, but to Napoli rather than any of his former clubs.

Last season, Ibrahimovic made 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring 30 goals.
