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

Today the French Football Federation, the FFF, confirmed that they have received the global transfer certificate, which would pave the way for Neymar's debut.

Neymar knew what he was leaving behind by swapping life at the Nou Camp for his Ligue 1 challenge, and Emery is sure the player who cost 222 million euros (£200.6million) will be keen to impress.

This Sunday will see Guingamp, who registered an impressive win over Metz, play host at the Stade de Roudourou to PSG, who earned a humble 2:0 win against Caen.


Friday afternoon, the French Football Federation announced that it has received the International Transfer Certificate from the Royal Spanish Football Federation, which was needed in order to make Neymar available for matches.

"The start of the season differs for every player".

"Neymar has been a part of the club's success in the last four years but all that is in the past now". There is no reason for this hold-up to continue.

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


So long as the document has been verified by the French FA (FFF) and League (LFP) by midnight on Saturday, which serves as a formality, Neymar will be able to feature in Brittany the following day.

A delay in the submission of the relevant paperwork had threatened to prevent the Brazil star from making his first appearance for the club since his world-record €222million transfer from Barcelona. Dortmund has said they want no less than $150 million for Dembele.

"We all want him to start playing", Emery told a press conference on Friday.

"Emirates has a sponsorship contract with the French football club PSG until 2019", said a spokesman for the airline.


- Tottenham's Danny Rose is wanted by Manchester United, the Mirror claims, as Jose Mourinho has decided signing a new left-back is now an issue that needs resolving.
