Neymar's transfer: a problem for fans who don't want to know the truth about their beloved game

World-record signing Neymar looks set to make his debut for Paris St Germain tomorrow after the French football federation confirmed it had received the player's transfer certificate.

Barcelona must now deliver his transfer certificate to the Spanish Football Federation who will then pass it to the French Football Federation for the Brazilian to be registered.

Neymar is poised to make his much-anticipated debut for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

Anything other than a spectacular debut showing from Neymar and the criticism will begin in earnest.

The La Liga side have identified Coutinho, Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen and Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele as possible replacements for Neymar but would face new problems altogether if Messi were to leave.

Real Madrid made most of the early running for Mbappe but, like a British athlete at the world championships, the Spanish outfit faded as the pressure increased, allowing PSG to steal in and make off with the gold. But in order for a deal to be completed, Mbappe would need to reach an agreement with PSG and that has not happened yet despite conflicting reports that said otherwise.

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.

"He's a versatile player with a lot of physical and technical qualities, plus he's very fast", he said. That is why the Catalans want to withhold this sum, because Neymar played only one of the five contract years in Barcelona, agreed in October 2016.

Premier League title hopefuls Manchester City do remain keen on securing a deal for the 18-year-old, but they are unwilling to pay his asking price at present.
