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.

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, but...

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...

Zinedine Zidane scores immense try in strange football/rugby hybrid match

Just as they did when they faced a Marseille XI two summers ago, Toulon rugby club staged another one of their bizarre rugby/football hybrid charity matches on Wednesday evening.

The opposition this time was provided by veterans of France's 1998 World Cup-winning side, with the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps, Robert Pires and Claude Makelele all turning out for Les Bleus.

Indeed, Zidane proved that his mercurial talents aren't just limited to football when he carved through the Toulon...

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."

The Argentine...

In PSG's preseason, Jean-Kevin Augustin's form can't be ignored

PSG head coach Laurent Blanc has refused to comment on any impending move for Manchester United's Angel Di Maria.
Jean-Kevin Augustin has already shown promising physical tools. But is he mentally ready to play a role at PSG this season?

Paris Saint-Germain's lengthy pursuit of Angel Di Maria seemingly edged closer to its conclusion over the weekend and the French media is now anxiously awaiting official word on the potential acquisition of the Manchester United man.

Since the end of an immensely successful season for PSG, rumours have linked the Argentina international with the move that he was expected to make last summer before ultimately opting to move to Old Trafford instead.

Now it appears only a matter of time before that...
