The man best known for constantly changing teams may have found a semi-permanent home. AP and Fox Soccer have reported that PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a one-year extension, which would prolong his stay until 2016.
Ibra was signed from AC Milan for around €20 million last season. In his first campaign in Paris, the big Swede lived up to the price tag, netting 30 goals and helping the Ligue 1 outfit to their first League title in eight years.
Despite his impressive first season, the arrival of another striker, Edinson Cavani, over the summer had fuelled speculation that Ibrahimovic may want to leave Parc des Princes.
Those rumours have, for now been put to bed, as the former Ajax starlet appears happy to extend his stay.
News of the striker’s extension was made official through PSG’s twitter account: “Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce the club has agreed a one-year contract extension with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish striker is now tied to the Club until June 2016.”
Ibrahimovic was later quoted as saying: ''my wish is that Paris Saint-Germain is my last big club. This club is like me: the dream is never big enough.''
The news will undoubtedly come as a blow to Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City, who were hoping the striker would be unsettled and request a transfer. For now, Ibrahimovic is content at PSG.
