Monaco agree a deal in principle with PSG for Mbappe

All things said, the story of the game and perhaps the weekend, and maybe even the feature of world football's week, will be the highly-anticipated debut of Neymar after his €222 million move to Paris.

"The federation is in contact with our Spanish counterparts".

There is a potential hitch - at the time of writing the authorities are waiting for the player's global clearance to be received - but the club are hopeful the matter will be sorted out.

Over the past seven days, national sports daily L'Equipe has devoted 37 pages of coverage to the Brazilian superstar's arrival in the French capital.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have followed up their world-record signing of Neymar by landing French teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe for a staggering £160million.

Following four successive Ligue 1 title victories, PSG were left with a bitter taste following Monaco's success past year, and boss Unai Emery has been backed with a staggeringly large transfer budget to wrestle the crown back. "Barcelona are a better team without Neymar", he told AS Sport. Neymar looks to be the club's answer to all the doubters, meanwhile, they have managed to retain their star midfielder Marco Verratti amidst courting from FC Barcelona. Firstly there's the fact that Sanchez's current deal expires at the end of next season, meaning any team can sign him on a free next summer; secondly are the wages being offered by each club.

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.
