Paris - Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted Sunday that he wants star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to stay at the French champions beyond June when his current deal runs out.

The 34-year-old Swede hit four goals on Sunday in a 9-0 demolition of Troyes which sealed a fourth successive Ligue 1 title for Laurent Blanc's side.

"Zlatan is magical," said Al-Khelaifi. "He is a great player. We are going to talk him and see what he wants to do. We want him to stay."

Ibrahimovic's four goals on Sunday took his league total to 27 in 24 games this season.

Qatari Al-Khelaifi added that PSG will now target a maiden Champions League triumph having already seen off Chelsea in the last 16.

"We must now stay focused because the season is not finished," he said.

"We have three more cups to fight for (Champions League, French League Cup, French Cup) but the Champions League is our biggest dream.

"We want to go as far as possible but we know there will be some very strong teams."
