Neymar presented to PSG fans but misses French league opener

Neymar presented to PSG fans but misses French league opener”

He is set to receive double that amount from PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain's new star player won't make his debut with the French league side against Amiens because of paperwork issues.

Last year, the British daily The Telegraph named Zahavi the sixth most powerful agent in soccer.

The French league did not receive Neymar's global transfer certificate before Friday night's deadline despite his 222 million-euro ($262 million) move from Barcelona being completed the previous day.

The 25-year-old Brazilian superstar flew into Le Bourget airport, north-east of Paris, in a private jet on Friday morning before heading into the city in a motorcade.

Neymar may not have been in contention to play 90 minutes anyway, having had only one training session with his new club, though he should be more or less match fit after playing a number of pre-season friendlies with Barcelona.

I had the honor of acting with the greatest athlete I've ever seen in my life and I'm sure I will never see another one like him while I'm alive. I was quite nervous in my first week at Barcelona, but after that I was relaxed.

"Once a country owns a club, everything is possible. I don't have a burden on me". "I weigh 69kg, and I'll remain at 69kg".

Amiens is not the type of fixture that PSG requires a game-changing dynamo up front like Neymar.

Other fans on Twitter said they would even going as far to buy a new Neymar shirt with the sole intention of incinerating it upon purchase.

"We won't accept the money from a club like PSG which doesn't belong to la Liga. and especially when it is breaking laws and rules", Tebas told AS, claiming "the case of PSG is a clear example of financial doping by a state-supported club".

In the process, Neymar's time at the Camp Nou has come to an end and he took to his Instagram account and paid tribute to the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol, Victor Valdes, Luis Suarez and most importantly Lionel Messi.

Despite the huge transfer fee, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is convinced he has sealed a good deal.

When finalised, that will more than double the $156 million Manchester United paid to get Paul Pogba from Juventus past year.

"All players have the right to want to stay or leave".

"For people worrying about FFP, go and have a coffee, there are no problems", he said.

"We wait until the very last minute to know if he could play". Neymar is there to give the team a little more. And all it cost for his freedom to join Paris Saint-Germain was the eye-popping sum of $262 million. We are expecting that.

Fans incensed by Neymar's mega move to the Paris Saint Germain posted videos on Twitter dousing Barcelona jersey's with Neymar 11 and setting it alight.
