The Sweden international, on a salary of €14 million a year at the Parc des Princes, will move into a €40,000-a-month property in a private road in Park Chauchard, Le Figaro has reported.

Laurent Demeure, the president of the estate agency that handled the deal, said: "All I can tell you is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic needed a place to rest and rejuvenate.

"At first, he thought about living in one of the more glamorous areas of Paris. He wanted a beautiful Haussmann building with high-tech services and a status equivalent to that of an international five-star hotel, plus parking in the basement."

Reports had said Ibrahimovic was close to moving to the Villa Montmorency, close to the home of the former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Since his arrival in the French capital, the forward and his family have lived in Parisian hotels including the InterContinental near the Opera.
