They may have won their first league title in almost two decades last season, but Paris Saint-Germain must not become complacent, and need to continue improving, according to midfielder Lucas Moura.

The Brazilian is just one of many big-name players to have joined the Parisian club since the Qatari takeover. Like most, the financial gain offered with a move to France made sense, as well as the opportunity to play with stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and David Beckham.

Speaking to the club's official TV station, Moura stated: "Our team is very strong, full of great players like [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Edinson] Cavani, [Ezequiel] Lavezzi and Thiago Silva. These are players of the highest level.

"Our goal is to win as many titles as possible and do better than last season."

This summer, business has been resumed as usual, with Edinson Cavani signing for more than €60m. The Uruguayan could forge a deadly striking partnership with Ibrahimovic, as Laurent Blanc's side will now face a new challenge from the money of Monaco, who have also spent big during pre-season.

Blanc is preparing for his first season at the Parc des Princes, after Carlo Ancelotti departed to take the helm at Real Madrid. 

With a new manager, it will be interesting to see how differently PSG play and perform. Last season they were eliminated by Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League - a stage that a club of their wealth will aim to progress past this time around.

But firstly they have the league to worry about, which begins away to Montpellier this weekend. This meeting between the last two winners of Ligue 1 will be a test of how strong the club from the capital still are.

"Montpellier will be a good test to see if the team is fit and well prepare," added the Brazilian. "They're a great team and it is a long championship so we do not want to lose points this early."
