Luis Suarez: Wanted by Paris St Germain

Paris St Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi has outlined ambitious plans to take Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain to the French capital.

PSG's Qatari investors have already pumped substantial funding into the club in an effort to return them to the top of their domestic game and back into Europe's elite.

A standing at the top of the Ligue 1 table has offered them an immediate return on their investment, but Al-Khelaifi has made it clear that this season's success is just the start.

He says the lavish spending at Parc des Princes will continue for 'five or six years' as PSG set about becoming a global powerhouse.

Big-name signings will help them to edge towards that target and Al-Khelaifi has revealed that summer approaches for Liverpool striker Suarez and Real Madrid forward Higuain could be in the offing.

"We are already looking at the market for next season," he said.

"We have clear targets in mind. It is true that we want Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain.

"Our real short-term targets are to win the Champions League and find a new Lionel Messi.

"We will spend what is normal for a top-class club. We prefer to invest a lot and immediately.

"In the next five or six years, we still spend this amount. Then the investments will slow."
