Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made clear his intention of remaining at Paris-Saint-Germain for at least the coming season, reports ESPN.

The Swede signed a three-year contract when he moved to Parc des Princes from AC Milan last summer, but has been linked with a move away from the French capital since the end of last season, with Manchester City and Real Madrid earmarked as potential destinations. 

And, following the arrival of another striker in the form of Edinson Cavani, fans had thought the 31-year-old forward will soon be on his way out of Ligue 1.

Easing speculations, Ibrahimovic announced earlier this week that he was confident of his future and has no intention of leaving.

"I'm happy in Paris. Everything that you write and you read in the papers isn't true, but that's the work of the media," the Malmo-born forward speaking at the presentation of PSG's new away shirt in his native country, told the press.

"I'm wearing a PSG shirt today and I'll wear it again against Real Madrid on Saturday. I'll continue to wear it and I think it looks good on me," he added.

"From the first day I signed at PSG everything's always gone really well. My presentation was extraordinary. Luckily, I've been able to repay them for that fantastic welcome by winning the title last season. 

"Now I hope to be able to continue to do that, so I don't think the supporters need to be worried."

Despite his statement, Ibrahimovic - whose 30 goals and eight assists last season helped PSG to win their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years - will meet the club president Nasser Al-Khelalfi to discuss the possibility of a new and improved contract.
