6. Paris St Germain – 5.28%
Quite rightly, Bloombery believe that PSG will lead France’s challenge for the Champions League. The French champions main summer business was buying defender David Luiz for £40 million but apart from that, Laurent Blanc hasn’t strengthened all that much. The PSG hierarchy will hope that the team can improve on last year’s quarter final finish.
