Speculation is rife in the Swedish press that Real Madrid may be preparing to make a bid for Inter Milan's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport has indicated that the newly crowned Spanish champions are willing to fork out 470 million kronor (€50 million) to attract the Swede to Madrid.

The deal would also involve a 64 million kronor signing on bonus for the player, Goal reports.

Ibrahimovic would also see his annual wage packet swell from 57 to 77 million kronor.

Both clubs have so far declined to comment on the rumours.
