Paris Saint-Germain chief Sheikh Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Thani has admitted that the club would love to bring in Real Madrid duo Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The ambitious French club have splashed over €100 million on the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Javier Pastore and Thiago Silva, but do not look like reining in their spending anytime soon, despite the Financial Fair Play regulations hovering on the horizon.

Indeed when quizzed over their potential targets, Al-Thani, right-hand man to PSG's oil-rich owner Sheikh Nasser Al Khelaifi, revealed nothing is out of reach, including the world's most expensive player and his manager at Madrid.

"Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho are objectives for Paris Saint-Germain, of course," Al-Thani told Canal Football. "PSG are one of the best clubs in the world. Ever since day one, our goal has been to win the Champions League.

"We are already one of the best teams in France, and it's our goal to become one of the best in Europe and the world, too."

Mourinho, however, has often maintained that his next move would be back to England, with Manchester rivals City and United suggested as potential suitors.
