Neymar PSG debut delayed due to missed transfer certificate deadline

Yet the 25-year-old emphasised the lure of fulfilling Qatar-backed PSG's ambition of conquering Europe, rather than the considerable financial rewards, in his first statement with the club.

The payment of the clause would shatter the previous world record transfer of 105 million euros (then $116 million) that Manchester United paid for France midfielder Paul Pogba a year ago.

He said, "They will pay Neymar's release clause today [Wednesday], so the presentation can take place at the end of the week".

Neymar insisted that money was not a motivation in deciding to join Paris Saint-Germain and said Friday that he would not be burdened by his 222 million-euro ($262-million) price tag.

"We look at Neymar as a brand", PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.

Barcelona had moved heaven and earth to bring Neymar to the Camp Nou a few years ago, and the player had quickly become one of the mainstays of the squad as the club won the league as well as the coveted UEFA Champions League.

The Daily Mail claim that Barcelona have already identified their desired replacement for Neymar, making contact with Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele.

"I had the honour of playing alongside the greatest athlete I've seen in my life, and I'm sure I won't see another who's better".

Al-Khelaifi added: "I want to add that during the process of contract negotiations, Neymar was trying to slow things down to show respect to his fans and his team-mates, so he could leave with his head held high". I have accepted the @psg to seek new conquests and help the Club achieve the titles that the fans expect.

Neymar's Brazilian worldwide teammate Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele have both been linked.

He said: "I wanted a new challenge".

The capital club next visit Guingamp before returning to the Parc des Princes to host Toulouse on August 20, with a capacity crowd expected for the occasion of Neymar's likely home debut.

PSG completed the protracted deal by paying the €222m (£200m) buy-out fee stipulated in Neymar's Barca contract, but only after a freakish row with Spanish league chiefs who attempted to block the deal.

He will reportedly earn £30m per year, or around £596,000 each week after tax. "He recommended me to come here".

Neymar went to Porto on Wednesday for a medical in anticipation of joining PSG, who are aware of the implications of FFP on this transfer and have been working on ways of complying with that.

"Neymar came here to write new pages in the history of Paris St Germain".

I think somewhere along the line we had to believe the Neymar move was going to happen, with the amount of money that was involved.

Neymar joined Barcelona in 2013, winning two Spanish La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys and the 2015 UEFA Champions League. They also have the Uruguay attacked Edinson Cavani to help Neymar in attack (he scored 35 goals in the last season of Ligue 1).
