Madonna has reportedly been offered £12.5 million to play two gigs in Dubai.
The singer is currently confirming the details of a world tour to promote her Hard Candy album and is considering playing two dates in the Arab state.
A source told The Sun: 'Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career - or anyone’s career for that matter.'
'The negotiations for the tour to stop in Dubai in November are being finalised and she will get £7.5million for the one show only. The figure is so big because of her new contract with Live Nation and the huge funds available from private promoters in Dubai.'
The '4 Minutes' singer is also considering performing at a private party in the city for a £5 million fee.
Madonna signed a £60 million recording contract with concert promoters Live Nation in 2007.
