Madonna could earn $1 billion - making her the third richest female entertainer in the world - by signing up for a five year residency in Las Vegas.
Madonna could earn $1 billion by signing up for a five year residency in Las Vegas.
The 'Celebration' singer is said to be in discussions with promoters to establish a run of shows in the glitzy US gambling capital.
If Madonna signs the deal she will be following in the footsteps of other performers such as Elton John, Cher and Celine Dion, who have all made huge sums through Vegas contracts.
If the rumours of the contract being worth $1 billion are true, it would push 52-year-old Madonna up the list of highest earning females in the world. Currently, with an estimated fortune of £208 million, she is in fourth place behind talk show host Oprah Winfrey, host and publisher Martha Stewart and British 'Harry Potter' creator JK Rowling.
It is not known if a Las Vegas residency would conflict with the 'Material Girl' singer's current ten year touring contract with promoters Live Nation, signed in 2007 for a reported £80 million.
Whether she appears in Vegas or not, the singer plans to keep touring and recently auditioned for dancers in London to appear in a proposed tour next autumn.
A source said: "It's going to be her biggest, most unexpected tour to date. She is going back to her New York City roots, with a street/hip-hop feel, and wants to make it a physical, dance-heavy set of gigs."
The as-yet unnamed tour - which is part of Madonna's deal with Live Nation - is expected to net the singer in excess of £100 million.
The singer's last world tour - 'Sticky and Sweet' - finished last September and grossed an estimated $400 million in ticket sales.

Madonna could earn $1 billion if she agrees to sign a five-year Vegas residency deal, reports say.
The singer is said to be in talks with promoters which would see her follow in the footsteps of other Vegas acts including Elton John, Celine Dion and Cher.
Metro reports that the deal would push the 'Hung Up' star up the list of the highest paid female entertainers in the world to third position, behind Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart.
It is unclear whether the arrangement would conflict with her ten-year touring contract with Live Nation, signed in 2007 for a reported £80 million.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Madonna was planning a hip-hip tour after road-testing dancers at a nightclub in London's Mayfair.
