Paris Saint-Germain has announced that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has extended his contract with the club by an additional year, tying him to the French champion until 2016.

"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 are my last big club. This club are like me: just dreaming is never good enough."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has shared his delight at Ibrahimovic committing for an added 12 months and insists that the club and Ibrahimovic can conquer the Champions League together.

"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," Al-Khelaifi said on Tuesday. "Together, we aim to lead the club to European summit."
