PSG Close To Agreeing £163m For Barcelona Target Mbappe

Neymar named in PSG squad to face Guingamp

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 18-year-old wonderkid's move means he is set to play alongside record-breaker Neymar and Edison Cavani in one of the most exciting front lines in world football.

Leonardo Jardim's principality outfit will be expecting to make it two wins from two when they pay a visit to Dijon on Sunday. We all want to see him take the field.

The French league added that it "does not understand" why its Spanish counterpart "refuses to accept the payment for the buyout clause for Neymar".

Sports daily L'Equipe saw things differently, though.

'There's no anti-Neymar plan, ' said Jordan Ikoko this week.

Both the French Football Federation (FFF) and the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP), which runs Ligue 1, confirmed the transfer was now complete. Over his 4 seasons at Barcelona the Brazilian scored 105 goals and created 89 chances last season alone; just imagine what he could do in French football.

"We all want him to start playing as soon as possible", said Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery in his pre-match press conference - before the news of the ratification had come through.

"I don't need to tell you that the Spanish federation is having some problems at the moment", Le Graet told L'Equipe.

PSG opened the season by beating Amiens 2-0 at the Parc des Princes last Saturday.

The Brazil worldwide, who won the Champions League alongside Xavi in 2015, sealed a £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain last week after four years at the Nou Camp which also saw him win two La Liga titles and three Copa del Rey crowns.

Flush with post-Neymar money, Barcelona apparently is keen to sign Neymar's Brazilian national squad teammate Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.
