13 August, 2017, 03:35 | Author: Terri Saunders

But, PSG, it seems, are not done yet as the French side looks set to make another mega signing in the form of one on the most sought-after youngsters in world football, Kylian Mbappe.

PSG head coach Unai Emery has confirmed Neymar is fit enough to be named in his starting XI this weekend.

PSG on Friday confirmed the Brazilian, who joined the club in a EUR222million move, had been cleared to play after his transfer was officially ratified following the receipt of his worldwide transfer certificate by the French Football Federation.

Last week they ripped up the record books with the capture of Brazilian star Neymar from Barcelona for £199m.

And who's gunning for Neymar's debut jersey at the end of the game?

The Brazil worldwide is 17/2 with the online bookmaker to score a hat-trick.

Sony Sets 'Silver And Black' Release Date; 'Bad Boys 3' Now Unset
Unfortunately, they won't have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead. Sony has set a date for the spin-off film set in the Spider-Man universe " Silver and Black ".


The 25-year-old forward can play for the Ligue 1 side at Guingamp on Sunday. He is ready. We want him to be in the squad and to start.

Barcelona players labelled last season a failure and Gerard Pique among others has suggested a return to passing, possession football is what is needed for the club to restore their previous glories.

"He has to take time to adapt to his new environment", said Emery, according to PSG's website.

Mbappe has been linked with a €180 million transfer to PSG and Madrid are also interested in him.

The Sun says that the PSG players have been informed that Mbappe will introduced to them at the Parc des Princes at the start of next week having successfully completed negotiations with Monaco. The player reportedly sent an email to the Reds informing them of his desire to be transferred. As for PSG, it is France's most famous football club but with a stadium capacity of just 48,000 you might wonder how it can possibly afford a player who will cost €30 million a year on top of his transfer fee.

Di Maria already has allies at the Nou Camp in the form of worldwide team-mates Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano and could be keen on a switch if he loses his place to Neymar with the World Cup coming up next summer. It will certainly be more hard, but we love a challenge.
