Barcelona clear Neymar to make PSG debut

Barcelona clear Neymar to make PSG debut Neymar joined PSG for a record fee of €222 million last week.

The bank problem holding up Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain registration has cleared and the Brazil international should be free to make his debut on Sunday against Guingamp, Goal understands. The 25-year-old made a world-record €222 million move from Barcelona to PSG last week but was unable to play because final details of his registration had not been completed. Those issues are set to be ironed out over the next 24 hours, allowing him to play at Stade du Roudourou, reports goal.com.

Neymar had been waiting on his International Transfer Certificate (ITC), but Barca refused to clear it until they had received the funds from the French outfit into their bank account.   The Camp Nou side have now received the money and as such have given the OK for the Spanish FA (RFEF) to send the ITC to their counterparts in France.

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

He was in the spotlight on Friday as he participated in his first PSG training session open to the media since making his huge move, and it is anticipated that he will go straight into Unai Emery's starting XI at a ground where PSG have won only one of their previous five visits.
