The Swedish striker is out of contract in the summer, and a number of English clubs are reportedly "desperate" to sign the 34-year-old, but Silva wants Ibrahimovic to stay at PSG, per Sunni Upal in the Sun:
He is my good friend, but also at 34 he is playing the best football of his career. He is one of the best in the world, he is unique, there is not another player like him.
Of course I want him to stay at PSG, I cannot imagine us without him.
I know he has offers from England—and it is a big league—but I don’t think there is a team in England that is at the level of PSG at the moment. For me it would be a step down in quality for him.
None of those clubs can currently claim to be better than PSG, with Bleacher Report's Sam Tighe ranking the Ligue 1 champions as the second best side in Europe at the moment:

Arsenal, Chelsea and United are all already out of the UEFA Champions League, with the latter two also unlikely to be competing in Europe's top club competition next season—potentially giving the Gunners an edge if Ibra does indeed want to move to the Premier League.
PSG, meanwhile, can qualify for the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday if they can edge out Manchester City in their last-eight tie at the Etihad Stadium—the first leg finished 2-2.
However, it does look as though Ibrahimovic is set to depart the Parc des Princes in the summer, having admitted as much last month, per beIN Sports.
And it is no surprise that Premier League clubs are clamouring to sign him up, as he is still remarkably clinical in front of goal—he has netted 30 times in 26 league appearances this season per WhoScored.com.
The English top flight is also one of the few major European leagues he has not yet conquered in a career that has included triumphs in the Eredivisie, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1, per Sky Sports News HQ:
Ibrahimovic would be a fantastic addition at Arsenal, who have long lacked a truly top-class striker who can consistently contribute 20-plus goals a season.
While Silva may want him to stay at PSG, it seems Zlatan is eager for one last hurrah in the Premier League to close out his glittering career, following a four-year spell in Paris during which he has won four more league titles.
