The allure of financial gain has attracted some of the most coveted players to make the move to France's capital. 

With the influx of imported foreign talent and the ambitions of a club the size of Paris St-Germain, It wasn't long before renowned Italian tactician Carlo Ancelotti had a squad capable of bringing honours back with a historic Ligue 1 side.

One of the most impressive performances of a season that saw PSG reclaim their stake as French kings was perhaps in the two-legged Champions League affair with Barcelona. 

Although tasting bitter heartbreak by exiting the elite competition via away goals, the performance over both games was undoubtedly a vital part of the growth of this side. 

Unfortunately, with the ruthless spending of a tax haven past rival backed by a equally ambitious Russian Oligarch, along with a reportedly disgruntled Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Carlo Ancelotti requesting to leave for Real Madrid; PSG find themselves in a delicate state but one in which they can reinforce their stamp and approval back on a league they dominated this past year. 

The vast sums of money being spent by Monaco can't compensate for stability and continuity that PSG have established in the last two seasons.  

The young core of players in place and a philosophy, which gives them the platform to perform as a team, will see the Parisian grow as a team and not one accused of hiring mercenaries. 

The rise of Monaco and the players that are considering Ligue 1 as a viable option, will only help improve the reputation and level of competition in the league. 

The 2013-2014 season has the ingredients to be one of the best season French football has seen in recent times.
