The 2013–14 Paris Saint-Germain season was the 41st professional season of the club since its creation in 1970, and its 40th consecutive season in the country's top league. The club competed in Ligue 1, the Coupe de la Ligue, the Coupe de France, the UEFA Champions League, and, by virtue of winning the 2012–13 Ligue 1 title, the 2013 Trophée des Champions.

Continuing the policy begun in 2011 after the arrival of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi as president, Paris Saint-Germain made a high profile move for Edinson Cavani from Napoli for €64,5 million, as well as young defenders Marquinhos (Roma) and Lucas Digne (Lille). World Cup winner and former French national team coach Laurent Blanc replaced Carlo Ancelotti as head coach after the latter's departure for Real Madrid.

On 7 May, PSG won their second straight Ligue 1 title despite losing 2–1 to Rennes.[1][2] The title was secured before PSG kicked off when Monaco drew 1–1 against Guingamp.[3][4]

Players[edit]

First team squad[edit]

For a list of all former and current Paris Saint-Germain F.C. players, see Category:Paris Saint-Germain F.C. players.

French teams are limited to four players without EU citizenship. Hence, the squad list includes only the principal nationality of each player; several non-European players on the squad have dual citizenship with an EU country. Also, players from the ACP countries—countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific that are signatories to the Cotonou Agreement—are not counted against non-EU quotas due to the Kolpak ruling.

As of 29 January 2013.[5]

Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality.

Transfers[edit]

PSG started their transfer window business much later in order to give incoming manager Laurent Blanc time to settle at his new club. The club made their first transfer of the season on 16 July when they signed Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani from Napoli; the transfer broke the Ligue 1 transfer record which was broken previously in the summer by Monaco when they signed Radamel Falcao. The transfer was the fifth-most expensive transfer ever at and the highest at that point for that summer's transfer window. The following day, Lille left-back Lucas Digne signed for €15 million.

After struggling with injuries for the past two years which prevented him from cementing a place in the team, Uruguayan centre-back Diego Lugano left on a free transfer to join English club West Bromwich Albion.
