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.
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.
