Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants Paris Saint-Germain stay - Thiago Silva

Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to stay at the Parc des Princes.

Ibrahimovic, 34, is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer or a return to Serie A, while he recently said he would be "in good shape" to play in the Premier League

The striker has hinted on several occasions that he has a plan in mind for next season, saying there will be "a very big surprise" and promising that "big things will happen."

However, Thiago Silva said the Sweden international, who has won league titles in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, would welcome a contract extension at PSG.

Asked about Ibrahimovic after he provided two goals and two assists in a 4-1 win over Reims on Saturday, the Brazilian defender said in L'Equipe: "It is difficult to say anything about him -- he is always amazing.

"We'll see what he does at the end of the season, but in my opinion he can stay because he could still play with us. I think he wants to stay."

However, Thiago Silva said that Ibrahimovic, who has never won a major European trophy, might want to move on if he finally ends his long wait.

"If he wins the Champions League this season, his opinion will probably be different," he laughed.
