Zlatan Ibrahimovic may be 34-years-old, but the towering Swede has showed no signs that he is ready to fade away after another masterclass for Paris Saint-Germain against Reims.
Laurent Blanc's side lead Ligue 1 by an almost unassailable 24 points and look set to wrap up the title in record time. While the likes of Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Angel di Maria have all contributed to their utter domination, none have done as much as Ibrahimovic.
The striker has scored an incredible 23 goals in just 21 Ligue 1 appearances this season and contributed a further ten assists. To put those stats in context, he is now the leading goal scorer and creator in France's elite division. Adding to that, his overall goal contribution (33) is 14 higher than the nearest competitor.
And last night was further proof that Ibrahimovic is more like a fine wine than any of us ever imagined. He is just getting better and better with age. He scored two and assisted a further two in a 4-1 win over Reims. And one of those goals was an absolute peach – a volley from a dipping cross. Take a look at the highlights below:
But it is not just the goals and assists that made Ibrahimovic's performance on Saturday night superb. He regularly dropped deep into midfield, collecting the ball and dictating the pace of play. Across the 90 minutes, he touched the ball 86 times. Not bad for a man tipped to retire in the near future.
Good enough for the Premier League?
It was a performance that will have surely alerted a number of Premier League clubs. The 2014 Puskas Award winner suggested earlier this week that he was "in shape" for a move to England when his contract at Parc des Prince expires this summer. On current form, no one would argue with him. To be fair, not many people would argue with the 6"4' goliath anyway.
