Neymar braced for PSG debut and French culture shock


14 August, 2017

"So it'll be Neymar, (Edinson) Cavani and without doubt (Angel) di Maria in a three pronged attack", said Le Parisien, which then gave a long list of top signings who will be warming the PSG bench.

With worldwide transfer documents finally received by the French Football Federation from their Spanish counterparts, the world's most expensive footballer is primed for a first appearance with his new team.

Paris Saint-Germain have been one of the most-talked about clubs after they struck a world record transfer of Neymar from Barcelona for a staggering £198million.

Almost a week after his transfer from Barcelona to Paris-Saint Germain became official, forward Neymar Jr.

That will allow him to be registered for the game at the Stade du Roudourou.

It was reported that a banking issue had prevented Barca from sending the necessary document to the Royal Spanish Football Federation, which in turn was required to pass the information to the FFF.

"Everything's going well, he's ready, he's showing a lot of good things and adapting very well with the squad", said Emery.

So, each decided that they would openly seek out trades (or in Neymar's case a transfer) from these teams in search of teams that would be built around themselves.

According to The Sun, the Qatari-backed French side who have won the race, with PSG's players told that the 18-year-old is set to be unveiled at the Parc des Princes as soon as Monday.

Ikoko - a former PSG trainee - knows his own performance will be scrutinised thanks to the glare that shines on Neymar everywhere he goes.

Do you think Neymar should have left Barcelona for PSG?

However club morale was boosted by Messi agreeing to sign a new contract this summer, extending his stay until 2021.

Following four successive Ligue 1 title victories, PSG were left with a bitter taste following Monaco's success previous year, and boss Unai Emery has been backed with a staggeringly large transfer budget to wrestle the crown back.
