  • Neymar : Barcelona receive PSG money to free up striker

It's been almost a week since Neymar landed in Paris, and the world's most expensive player still can't play for his new club in the French league.

With the Brazil global already on board after his €222 million move from Barcelona, PSG have now focused the majority of their attention on securing the second star name they see as vital to the regeneration of their project, Mbappe. The #Transfer market preceding the season has seen Monaco lose a lot of their star players.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas admits that the big European clubs are anxious about Paris Saint-Germain's spending spree and feel it could lead to unsustainable inflation in transfer fees and wages.

The signing is another huge statement of intent by PSG after they landed Neymar from Barcelona in a deal that saw questions asked over Uefa's Financial Fair Play regime.

Paris Saint-Germain is a professional football club based in Paris, France. I played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge.

North Korea develops its nuclear programme "at an alarming rate"
Friday: The US president warns that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely". Donald Trump in particular has promised "fire and anger" at North Korea.


Tabloids claim the 18-year-old Monaco forward will cost PSG £160m after the player's father persuaded him to leave now instead of staying with the French champions for another 12 months. Even allowing for inflation over the last 38 years, Neymar is not worth 198 Trevor Francises, nor 100, nor a dozen.

However, not everyone is impressed with the transfer.

PSG smashed the world transfer record with their capture of Neymar from Barcelona, more than doubling the €105m Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba to Juventus in August 2016. "For me, it is the outcome of the ownerships that have completely changed the whole landscape of football in the last 15 years".

"If I was following the money, I would be somewhere else, with other clubs in other countries".

This could be an ideal move for Di Maria and PSG if they are convinced to sell.
