Ibrahimovic owns a quarter stake in the club after doing a deal alongside entertainment company AEG to buy into the Stockholm-based club.
Cifuentes, 41, was close to getting the QPR job when Michael Beale, who later left for Glasgow Rangers, took over in June last year.
QPR CEO Lee Hoos was delighted to confirm the Spanaird’s capture.
He said in a statement: “We are delighted to bring Martí in and I would firstly like to thank Hammarby for being fantastic to deal with throughout the process.
