Amid rumours linking him to various clubs, Julien Laurens discusses whether or not PSG's Marco Verratti is set for a move. PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain will end an unsatisfying season with a Coupe de France final against Angers at Stade de France on Saturday and the curtain will come down on popular veteran Maxwell's illustrious career with the capital club as well. It is unclear what the future holds for the Brazilian left-back right now but whether he plays on or hangs up his boots, the 35-year-old will always deserve more credit than he generally tends to get. Assuming PSG beat Angers this weekend, Maxwell will...

Marco Verratti reportedly told teammates he couldn't pass up the opportunity to play alongside Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

The Ligue 1 season broke many records as David beat Goliath: Monaco was crowned champions ahead of Paris Saint-Germain. Few anticipated such a wonderful Monaco campaign back in August.

Paris Saint-Germain 2017-18 home kit has Parisiens saying 'non'

May 24, 2017 02:39 AM PDT

Paris Saint-Germain never usually pass up the opportunity to make themselves the focus of attention in European football but on Tuesday they opted for a low-key launch of their 2017-18 home kit. It is easy to see why. Les Parisiens will be sporting a navy blue number next season but one boasting burgundy sleeves -- a departure from their usual blue, white and red colour scheme and interpreted by some as a nod towards the capital club's Qatari owners -- and red chevrons down the middle. The shirt...

Maxwell farewell spoiled by sub-par finale to disappointing PSG season

May 20, 2017 03:50 PM PDT

PSG looked en route to a 1-0 win, before Ronny's late stoppage time equaliser, ensuring Caen remain in Ligue 1 next season. PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain ended a disappointing season with a turgid 1-1 draw against Caen in Ligue 1 on Saturday. Adrien Rabiot scored for Unai Emery's men, but Ronny Rodelin spoiled Maxwell's Parc des Princes farewell with a late equaliser, which kept the visitors in le Championnat. Positives It was such a dire match that there were no real positives to take from it. Until he conceded the penalty, Presnel Kimpembe was en route for a special mention, and Kevin Trapp perhaps deserves one for...

May 19, 2017 11:59 AM PDT

The ESPN FC crew discuss what lies ahead for Unai Emery and Paris Saint-Germain following a disappointing 2016-17 campaign. Edinson Cavani heaped praise on his Paris Saint-Germain teammates as he was named Ligue 1 Player of the Year. Amid rumours linking him to various clubs, Julien Laurens discusses whether or not PSG's Marco Verratti is set for a move. PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain will take to the Parc des Princes pitch to face Caen on Saturday as former Ligue 1 champions. Monaco's 2-0 home win over St-Etienne on Wednesday confirmed Les Monegasques as kings of Le Championnat this season, so PSG's sights will now be set on next week's Coupe de France final against Angers -- this campaign's final piece of potential silverware. Although disappointed his side were beaten to the title by the men from the principality, capital club coach Unai Emery...

May 13, 2017 11:15 AM PDT

Amid rumours linking him to various clubs, Julien Laurens discusses whether or not PSG's Marco Verratti is set for a move. PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain's clash away at AS Saint-Etienne in the penultimate round of Ligue 1 fixtures on Sunday promises to be an emotional affair, and one the French champions need to rise above if they are to keep their slim title hopes alive. Christophe Galtier will coach Les Verts for the final time at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard this weekend and the club's supporters will be keen to see the popular tactician leave on a high after nearly eight years in charge.

Marco Verratti is a world-class talent and PSG must hold on to him

May 10, 2017 11:36 AM PDT

Amid rumours linking him to various clubs, Julien Laurens discusses whether or not PSG's Marco Verratti is set for a move. There was confusion and controversy as Paris Saint-Germain took a 2-0 lead at home to Bastia. Marco Verratti's agent Donato Di Campli rarely lets a week go by without discussing the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder's future and these past few days have been no exception. The Italian international's representative most recently hinted at interest from Bayern Munich when he spoke with Calcio Mercato about his client's future but also insisted the 24-year-old will not be leaving the French champions this summer. PSG have not had the best of seasons and although they could still add Coupe de France...

PSG's decision on Unai Emery may be determined by place in table

May 8, 2017 09:24 AM PDT

Unai Emery should return to PSG next season assuming the run-in goes as expected. With the title race out of their hands (they are three points behind Monaco and have played one more game) Paris Saint-Germain did the best they could. They beat what was in front of them -- on this occasion, it was Bastia -- as comprehensively as they could, winning 5-0. With Monaco romping to a 3-0 win away to Nancy, PSG are left exactly where they were before: hoping the opposition will somehow self-destruct. The word out of Paris is that Unai Emery will stick around as long as they don't drop...

Giovani Lo Celso cameo vs. Bastia gives PSG hope for the future

May 8, 2017 06:14 AM PDT

Until last Saturday's 5-0 thrashing of Bastia at Parc des Princes, January arrival Giovani Lo Celso had only experienced one solitary minute of Ligue 1 football. Given 10 minutes late on against the struggling Corsicans, the Argentine wasted little time in introducing himself to the French champions' supporters and gave them a tantalising taste of what they can expect from him in the future. Lo Celso replaced Marco Verratti in the closing stages of the Bastia thrashing and the 21-year-old not only...

Cavani keeps PSG in contention while Verratti goal infuriates Bastia

May 6, 2017 10:54 AM PDT

Bastia were incensed with Marco Verratti following the PSG star's controversial goal in his side's 5-0 rout. Paris Saint-Germain provisionally joined AS Monaco at the Ligue 1 summit by thrashing SC Bastia 5-0 thanks to goals from Lucas Moura, Marco Verratti, Edinson Cavani (two) and Marquinhos. Positives A strong response to last week's defeat away at OGC Nice. PSG needed to bounce back from their 3-1 pasting at Allianz Riviera and they did just that against a seemingly doomed Bastia side, who looked unlikely to score at Parc des Princes. Although the French champions should have had more goals, notably...

PSG must respond to Nice nightmare with confident showing against Bastia

May 5, 2017 11:42 AM PDT

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexis Sanchez are reportedly being eyed by PSG, but who best compliments Edinson Cavani? Paris Saint-Germain's hopes of another Ligue 1 title were dealt a significant blow after they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Nice. Gab Marcotti assesses Unai Emery's future at PSG after a loss to Nice put their Ligue 1 title hopes in jeopardy. PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain welcome SC Bastia to Parc des Princes on Saturday and need to bounce back from last weekend's 3-1 defeat at OGC Nice, which may well have cost the French champions the Ligue 1 title. Unai Emery's men imploded at Allianz Riviera last Sunday and had Thiago Motta and Angel Di Maria sent off late, as Lucien Favre's hungry and vibrant young Nice sunk their claws into a lethargic PSG to make a third-place finish a very real threat. The manager knows it will be tough to lift...

Will this be the end of the line for Unai Emery at PSG?

May 1, 2017 09:41 AM PDT

This could have been the only season with Unai Emery in charge at PSG. You wonder where Unai Emery stands after Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 defeat at Nice. Coupled with Monaco's 3-1 victory over Toulouse, it leaves PSG three points back and having played an additional game. Barring some act of divine (or demonic?) intervention, if Monaco win two of their last four games, somebody other than PSG will be champion of France for the first time since 2012. Nice have taken 46 of a possible 54 points at the Allianz Riviera this season and in fact haven't lost a league game...

Paris Saint-Germain's stars lose their cool in ill-tempered Nice loss

Apr 30, 2017 11:28 PM PDT

Paris Saint-Germain's hopes of another Ligue 1 title were dealt a significant blow after they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Nice. Gab Marcotti assesses Unai Emery's future at PSG after a loss to Nice put their Ligue 1 title hopes in jeopardy. Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 title hopes are as good as dead after an ill-tempered 3-1 defeat away at OGC Nice on Sunday. Marquinhos grabbed a consolation goal at Allianz Riviera but Thiago Motta and Angel Di Maria saw red late on as Unai Emery's men lost their composure in their pursuit of AS Monaco. Positives There was nothing positive to take from the loss. Tactically, Emery was out-thought by Lucien Favre, while the players never really recovered from the shock of seeing Mario Balotelli open...
