    Anyone looking forward to Paris Saint Germain playing Lyon next month will be disappointed. Clubs are going on strike, and a dozen games are being postponed, possibly even cancelled. It's all down to an impending tax, a promise Socialist President François Hollande made during his campaign: salaries over one million euros a year will be taxed 75%. Could this be the death knell for French football?

    Dan LEVY, France 24 Sports Editor;
    Erwan LE NOAN, Tax Lawyer and Business Consultant;
    Anne Elisabeth MOUTET, Columnist, Sunday Telegraph;
    Pascal PERRI, Economist and Author of "Don't Shoot Football".

    Watch the first part.

    Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
