Barcelona To Replace Neymar With Former Real Madrid Star

This involves a sum of Euro 26 million, which Neymar and his father, who is also his manager, are to receive as a bonus in 2016 for the contract renewal negotiated with Barça by 2021.

The Spanish boss added: "He's feeling good in training, we've worked on tactics and dead-ball situations".

And who's gunning for Neymar's debut jersey at the end of the game?

You've got a £50m budget to pick 11 players, with all the biggest new signings ready and raring to go ahead of a mouthwatering new Premier League campaign.

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.

"We could have filled a stadium of 40,000 seats with no problem at all", said Guingamp president Bertrand Desplat whose club budget is an eighth of what PSG paid for Neymar.

There are a few other nuggets of information proving Neymar is a case apart. It will make PSG a strong force, possessing one of the best attacking line-up in world football.

They have also parted ways with Spain winger Vitolo, captain Vicente Iborra and, more crucially, long time sporting director Monchi, who has been credited with unearthing so numerous players responsible for the team's many successes in the 21st century.

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.

New Paris Saint-Germain signing Neymar will not report former club Barcelona to Federation Internationale de Football Association over a frozen payment of €26 million.

However, even though PSG may have to sell players to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations following Neymar's transfer, the Parisian club may not be willing to sell Di Maria to Barcelona after the Brazilian forward's transfer saga has strained relations between the two clubs.

Gerard Deulofeu was handed Neymar's role alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez up front in Monday's 5-0 friendly win over Chapecoense on his return to the club after spells at Everton and AC Milan.
