Neymar named in PSG squad to face Guingamp

Neymar named in PSG squad to face Guingamp

Barca have previously tried to sign the Argentine twice before, but his high salary demands, and the club officials' reluctance to go against financial fair play rules, blocked the switch.

With global transfer documents finally received by the French Football Federation from their Spanish counterparts, the world's most expensive footballer is primed for a first appearance with his new team.

The Brazil worldwide sealed a move to Ligue 1 last week, after PSG smashed the world transfer record by activating a €222million release clause in his contract. "Have they decided, in a way to settle scores, to take the maximum amount of time allowed [to submit the paperwork]?" asked L'Equipe, the French daily sports newspaper. Those issues are set to be ironed out over the next 24 hours, allowing him to play at Stade du Roudourou.

Kilian Mbappe in his first full season played 44 matches - forward "Monaco" scored 26 goals and gave 14 assists, and the club sensationally won the French League and reached the semi-finals in the Champions League.

FFF president Noel Le Graet had earlier stated his confidence that Neymar would be able to make his bow in Brittany. Beating PSG with Neymar would be even more resounding.

The 25-year-old Brazilian is preparing for a legal dispute and wants to call for an arbitration by the FIFA World Cup, the Brazilian portal "GloboEsporte" reported.

The Sun says that the PSG players have been informed that Mbappe will introduced to them at the Parc des Princes at the start of next week having successfully completed negotiations with Monaco. "He's a player we need".

There are a few other nuggets of information proving Neymar is a case apart.

And the mega £360m double swoop is set to turn Ligue 1 into a one-team procession while PSG aim to slay the best in Europe.

"He's 20, which means two things: he has his whole future ahead of him but he has to show that he has the mental strength for a club as demanding as Barca".
