The French giants are looking to crack Europe's elite club competition with Thomas Tuchel at the helm, having only ever made it as far as the quarter-finals.

PSG have now teamed up with NBA legend Jordan, whose 'Jumpman' symbol will replace the Nike Swoosh on their jerseys for European nights.

Tuchel's side kick off their Champions League campaign against Liverpool next week, with Napoli and Red Star Belgrade also contesting Group C.

His Airness said in a statement: "Jordan Brand and Paris Saint-Germain share a distinct position in sport and style, so to partner with the club is a natural fit.

"We're excited to unite these two passionate communities by putting the Jumpman on the chest of Paris Saint-Germain to continue fuelling the energy for sport and style globally."

Les Parisiens star Neymar added: "For me the Jordan Brand means phenomenal, magic, irreverent. It is perfect for Paris and for the Champions League.

"It is a huge responsibility to carry Jordan's name on a shirt and we look forward to an excellent season.

"Two partners that are champions, both Paris and Jordan, so I really hope this connection brings us many titles."
