Paris Saint-Germain rule out Mbappe transfer

There is a potential hitch - at the time of writing the authorities are waiting for the player's global clearance to be received - but the club are hopeful the matter will be sorted out.

Neymar is expected to make his long-awaited debut with Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday in the small Brittany town of Guingamp after French football authorities finally received the Brazil star's worldwide transfer certificate (ITC).

Having secured Brazilian superstar Neymar for a fee of £198M last week, reports now suggest that the 18-year-old will follow him to the capital for a figure of around £163M.

More significant will be how quickly Neymar, 25, can make an impact for his new club.

Neymar debut has been put on hold due as PSG awaits International Transfer Certificate (ITC), but Barca refused to clear it until they had received the funds from the French outfit into their bank account.

It appears those conspiracy theories were all for naught, however, as the paperwork came through in time for Neymar to suit up on Sunday.

FFF president Noel Le Graet had earlier stated his confidence that Neymar would be able to make his bow in Brittany.

"I do not need to tell you that there are a few problems within the Spanish federation".

Many expected the Parisian club to be unchallenged at the top of the French League as they began the campaign after winning the Ligue 1 four consecutive times in the previous seasons. "The transfer is complete, so this should not last".

I would suggest going for a comfortable PSG win, but I believe Guingamp could offer a scare or two, so also betting on a high-scoring game wouldn't be a bad punt.
