The Sweden international joined PSG in 2012 from AC Milan and helped the club to win the Ligue 1 title during his first season at the Parc des Princes.
He considered leaving PSG during the summer before deciding to stay and he signed a one-year contract extension in September to bind him to the club until 2016.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently expressed his belief that Ibrahimovic will retire in the French capital, but the striker is not ruling out one last move.
"In June, I didn't know if I would stay at PSG, but then I met with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and he told me that I am the most important player for the PSG project," Ibrahimovic told Aftonbladet.
"'You must take us to where we dream of going'. It was a nice thing to hear and then we made an agreement. I extended my contract for one more year and now I could not be happier than in Paris.
"Day after day we feel stronger, everyone is talking about us, the opponents have a different respect for us, it's gaining the interest of the media and also increasing the sponsors.
"We are a great team now. Or, rather, we are becoming one because to be a really great team you have to win, not only the championship, as we have already done, but everything. We're working on it, we're getting there.
"Going to Paris a year ago was a risk, but I thought 'PSG is the future'. Now, I know that I did well.
"A future in the United States? I don't like to make too many plans, but one day, when my contract expires, I would like to play outside Europe, even if I don't know where."
