Lebogang Phiri Will Face Paris Saint-German On Neymar's Debut

PSG line up £80 million offer for Manchester City target Alexis Sanchez - Report

THE LFP has announced the ratification of Neymar Jr's transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, leaving the way clear for the Brazilian superstar to make his Ligue 1 Conforama debut away to EA Guingamp on Sunday night.

The French Football Federation (FFF) received Neymar's transfer certificate on Friday and the Brazil global is now available to play for PSG for the first time.

Neymar was unveiled to the PSG fans on Saturday but could only watch from the stands as his new team started its league campaign with a 2-0 win.

PSG are keen to partner Mbappe with Neymar in attack, which could see Edinson Cavani move out wide or drop to the bench, despite the Uruguayan's scoring 49 goals last season as the club's main striker.

"Emirates has a sponsorship contract with the French football club PSG until 2019", said a spokesman for the airline. There is no reason for this hold-up to continue.

According to Sky Sports correspondent Kaveh Solhekol, PSG attacker Neymar fully expects to receive the £23 million loyalty bonus "owed" to him by former club Barcelona due to his "good relationship" with the Catalan outfit.

In total, PSG have spent a eye-watering £372.5m this summer, with Spanish left-back Yuri Berchiche (£14.5m) and Brazilian right-back Dani Alves (free) also arriving in the French capital.

Spain's La Liga believes PSG are violating Uefa's financial fair play (FFP) rules and Barcelona previously said they would report the French club to European football's governing body, Uefa, for a FFP breach.

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

"The federation is in contact with our Spanish counterparts".

There are a few other nuggets of information proving Neymar is a case apart. Neymar has since returned to training with his teammates.
