Ibrahimovic, Johnny Heitinga and Maxwell, have all been handed contract improvements.
Swedish forward Ibrahimovic and Brazilian flanker Maxwell are still tied to the club until 2006, but have secured a wage rise.
Dutch international Heitinga has been rewarded for his meteoric rise last term with improved terms and a year's extension - locking him to Ajax until 2008.
Maxwell and Heitinga were never likely to leave this summer, but Ibrahimovic's future had been speculated on for some time.
Italian giants Roma were expected to push through a deal, but the departure of Fabio Capello saw their interest cool and he will almost certainly remain in Amsterdam until next summer.
