Barcelona striker Luis Suarez hunting down goalscoring records

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has a big personal target for 2020.

The Uruguayan is currently the fourth top scorer in the club's history. With 190 goals, only Kubala (194), César (232) and, of course, Lionel Messi (618) are ahead of him.

Suarez, therefore, is just four behind the great Kubala and a place on the podium. He says it's a "great challenge" but added: "I always said personal challenges have to be left to one side, but in this case, with so few (goals) to move (into third place) and overtake a historic player like Kubala, you feel very proud."

The distance is greater to second, with Cesar 42 goals clear of Suarez. That will reduce in 2020: "Second place is obviously a more difficult challenge, but that doesn't take it out of sight. You always try to do what you can. The first place is unreachable (smiles), but it's exciting to be able to get close to Cesar's figures."
