Ibrahimovic extends Paris Saint-Germain contract until 2016

The Sweden international wants to play out the rest of his career peak at Parc des Princes, while club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi reiterates their Champions League ambition
Paris Saint-Germain have announced that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has extended his contract with the club by an additional year, tying him to the French champions until 2016.

The Swede joined Les Parisiens ahead of the 2012-13 campaign on a three-year deal and notched more goals than anybody else in Ligue 1 as Carlo Ancelotti's side romped to their first title in 19 years.

The Italian coach's departure for Real Madrid in June fuelled rumours that the 31-year-old might depart this summer but PSG held on to the highly rated striker, who has now revealed his intention to retire at Parc des Princes.

"I see no greater ambition in Europe than Paris Saint-Germain's," Ibrahimovic told the club's official website.

"I really hope that Paris Saint-Germain is my last big club. This club is like me: For us, just dreaming is never good enough."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi shared his delight at the ex-Barcelona and Juventus frontman's commitment and insists that, together with the Swede, they can conquer the Champions League.

"The new contract of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the best players in the world, leaves a lasting mark on the history of the Paris Saint-Germain and is a very strong signal of intent," he declared.

"Together, we aim to lead the club to European summit."
