2015-16 Ligue in 1 -- five burning questions that will shape the season

Former French international Frank LeBouef discusses the expectations for Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the 2015/16 Ligue 1 season.

Ligue 1 returns on Friday, as champions Paris Saint-Germain travel to Lille. The Parisians are again favourites in France, as they take aim at a fourth consecutive league title.

Whether anyone will be able to stop PSG will be Ligue 1's over-arching story, but there are several other key questions that will have serious effects in French football in 2015-16.

1. Will the gambles pay off?

The biggest transfer of the summer in France is without doubt the pending arrival of Angel Di Maria to PSG,...

Serge Aurier and Edinson Cavani lead PSG to Trophee des Champions win

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop breaks down the latest regarding Angel Di Maria and PSG's quest for his signature.
Edinson Cavani continued his strong form from the end of last season by sealing PSG's 2-0 win over Lyon.

After last season's domestic clean sweep, Paris Saint-Germain picked up where they left off with a dominant 2-0 win over Olympique Lyonnais to lift the Trophee des Champions at Stade Saputo in Montreal on Saturday.

Serge Aurier and Edinson Cavani did the damage for Laurent Blanc's men as both scored and the club added another piece of silverware to their growing collection at Parc des Princes -- their third consecutive capture of the trophy and one that equals AS Saint-Etienne's record three-straight...

TOP STORY: United to lose £15m on Di Maria deal?

Angel Di Maria's sorry Manchester United career is coming to an expensive end for both the player and the club, according to the Daily Express.

The paper reports that the Argentina international will finally complete a £44m move to Paris Saint-Germain -- at a loss of over £15m on United's initial...

PSG aim to match Trophee des Champions win streak record

Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani speaks with ESPN FC about the upcoming season, and notes that PSG will be aiming to replicate the heights they reached last season.

Paris Saint-Germain were crowned this summer's International Champions Cup (ICC) winners after beating Manchester United 2-0 in Chicago. The French titleholders have now moved north to Canada, where they will finish their North American sojourn against Olympique Lyonnais in the Trophee des Champions in Montreal on Saturday.

Laurent Blanc's men are bidding for a third-straight win in the traditional Ligue 1 season curtain raiser and it is a mouth-watering clash between last campaign's champions and...

Pastore and Lavezzi's return boost PSG's preseason but concerns remain

Gabriele Marcotti claims that although there has been a hiccup in negotiations, he believes that the transfer of Di Maria from Manchester United to PSG will get done soon.

After the arrival of Argentina pair Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi in the United States earlier this week, Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc finally has a full squad to work with. However, the South Americans have missed the bulk of preseason, and the start of the new Ligue 1 campaign is now less than two weeks away.

Like last summer with the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the Copa America has disrupted the manager's plans, and the Frenchman has seen his non-European players arrive in drips...

Angel Di Maria would give Paris Saint-Germain a dimension they've lacked

Gabriele Marcotti claims that although there has been a hiccup in negotiations, he believes that the transfer of Di Maria from Manchester United to PSG will get done soon.

There is something a little different about the atmosphere around Paris Saint-Germain this week during their preseason in the U.S. There's something in the air. The smiles on players' faces are broader, Laurent Blanc looks like the cat who got the cream and even Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been praising someone other than himself.

"He is a fantastic player," the big Swede said last week about Angel Di Maria. "He brings pace, big quality and for sure he will make our team even better."
