The capital club already won the domestic title last season, pipping Olypique Lyonnais to the Ligue 1 crown, but their desire to make headway in the Champions League has seen them invest big during the summer transfer window.
The headline arrival, of course, was Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria, who moved to the Parc des Princes for €63 million. However, the club have also recruited Serge Aurier from Toulouse for €12m, Benjamin Stambouli from Tottenham Hotspur for €9m and Kevin Trapp for €9.5 million.
