Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has set his team the goal of reaching Europe next term - but ruled out a massive summer spending spree.

City could still end up in the UEFA Cup this year, albeit via the Intertoto Cup, but after a mid-season slump hopes of achieving a top six berth took a severe dent.

"I have a definite plan, a strategy: the first year top 10; the second year to qualify for Europe; and the third we want to be in the top four and qualify for the Champions League," said Thaksin in an extensive interview with City´s matchday programme ahead of their final home game of the season against Fulham.
