The PSG squad will fly to Doha after their final Ligue 1 game of 2017 at home to Caen on 20 December and will stay there until 23 December. The Qatar-owned club will stay and train at the Aspire Zone facility.

PSG spent time in Tunisia during last season's winter break but this will be their fifth trip to Qatar since the Qatar Sports Investments takeover in 2011.

Unai Emery's team are unbeaten this season and moved nine points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after beating reigning champions Monaco 2-1 away on Sunday.

The winter break in France lasts for just over two weeks until the first weekend of January, when top-flight clubs enter the French Cup.
