Ibra Could Break Records in France

MOST COMMENTED

Paris St. Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic heads into the Ligue 1 winter break on a scoring pace that could break records in France. The 31-year-old has 18 goals in 16 appearances so far, which is the best total at this stage of any season since 1984-1985.

"Records are there to be broken,” Ibrahimovic said. “If I do it, others will overtake me later on. My job is to score. I've started the season well, but I'm not setting myself any targets. My aim is to always improve on what I did the previous season.” The big Swede scored 28 goals in Italy’s Serie A last season playing for AC Milan.

His goals have helped PSG claim top spot in Ligue 1, tied with Lyon and Marseille on 38 points but leading thanks a superior goal differential. Ibrahimovic is one of many expensive signings for PSG over the last few seasons. The club has spent more than $330 million on its squad, and has a budget of more than $395 million, according to ESPN.
