PSG made Unai Emery's signing official until June 2018. The Basque coach arrives in the powerful Parisian project with the objective of winning the Champions League, a challenger that Carlo Ancelotti and Laurent Blanc have failed to achieve in the past seasons.

The French club's president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, was convinced by Emery's successes in the Europa League, a competition he has won twice in the last two years with Sevilla. Moreover, he led the Andalusian team to the Copa del Rey final he lost against Barça.

It will be Emery's second experience away from Spain. He has been the head coach of Rubin Kazan and he will now lead one of the most powerful clubs financially in Europe. On the sporting level, Emery will have to look for a reliable substitute for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the big stars of the last seasons. In the past weeks it has been said a lot about Neymar's interest to sign for PSG but it seems like the Brazilian player will stay at Barça.

Among the most talented players he will have in the squad are Thiago Silva, Cavani, Di María, David Luiz or Matuidi. Marquinhos' future is yet to be decided, the young centre-back having been linked several times with Barça.
