Neymar's debut for Paris Saint-Germain could be delayed again


Paris Saint-Germain's world record swoop for Neymar does not include the image rights for the Brazilian, according to his lawyers.

Eric Abidal has advised Kylian Mbappe to stay with Monaco and reject big-money offers from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Describing the double swoop as a "blockbuster partnership", the paper says that the French outfit have won the race to the Monaco magician and the 18-year-old "is set to be unveiled as soon as Monday".

And the Spanish media are reporting today that Mbappe wanted an astonishing £200,000 a week to join Madrid.

The main difference would be the wage for Mbappe and the fact that he could remain in Paris, keeping him closer to his family and friends.

During the training sessions, Neymar spends more time with his Brazilian colleagues, because he does not know French.

In the transfer market, as well as beginning the search for a replacement for Neymar, Barcelona have been working to plug squad gaps which let them down during the crucial run-in period last season.

The two-time Coupe de France winners kicked-off the new Ligue 1 season in positive fashion as they swept past opponents FC Metz with a 3:1 score-line.

Saying that, Guingamp played well last weekend and will force PSG to remain diligent in defense.

And the mega £360m double swoop is set to turn Ligue 1 into a one-team procession while PSG aim to slay the best in Europe.

Mbappe netted 26 goals in 44 appearances during his breakthrough season for Monaco in 2016/17, with the club lifting the Ligue 1 title as well as making it to semi-finals of the Champions League.

"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.
