Paris St Germain head into the upcoming campaign off the back of yet another busy summer.
Winning a league title wasn’t enough for Mauricio Pochettino to keep his position as head coach. Three-time Ligue 1 Manager of the Year Christophe Galtier - who took a league title from under the noses of the Parisiens in 2020-21 while in charge of Lille - takes over the reins.
The biggest and best news for the club came in the form of a new contract for star forward Kylian Mbappe who, at one point, looked destined for a move to Real Madrid.

Unless the Argentine opts to sign an extension, the 2022-23 campaign could well be Lionel Messi’s last in European football. The 35 year-old will also compete in what will surely be his last ever World Cup across November and December.
While much of the summer has been spent streamlining the squad, some new faces have also been brought in.
Galtier has evidently identified the midfield and full-back positions as the ones in most need of repair or reinforcement. Portuguese midfielders Vitinha and Renato Sanches - a player Galtier worked with at Lille - have arrived.
Another Portuguese talent in the form of left full-back Nuno Mendes is likely to play a key role having spent last season out on loan at Sporting Lisbon. Nordi Mukiele is another full-back, this time on the right hand side, who brings with him Champions League experience from his time at RB Leipzig.
One final signing that is certainly worth keeping an eye on is the young French forward Hugo Ekitike - a highly regarded talent and is unlikely to be among the PSG squad just to make up the numbers.
Signed on similar terms to Kylian Mbappe, Ekitike will initially join Paris St Germain on a loan deal from Reims, but with a mandatory buy-clause that will see them own him permanently at the end of the season for a fee of around $40m.
Oftentimes, transfer windows can be judged as much by who goes out as who comes in. Paris will embark on this new era under Christophe Galtier without Angel Di Maria and Gini Wijnaldum.
