Arsenal to miss-out on prime-target, move to European giant imminent
Paris: As the hysteria mounts ahead of Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain debut on Sunday focus switched from his record transfer fee to the question of which star would make way for the Brazilian.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed yesterday that he will sign a contract extension with the Spanish football giants soon.
The Spanish boss added: "He's feeling good in training, we've worked on tactics and dead-ball situations".
Xavi, who spent two years as Neymar's team-mate at Camp Nou, has described the move as "bizarre" and is not surprised supporters are angry with the way his exit took place. "He's a player we need". They just set that amount randomly.
The Sun says that the PSG players have been informed that Mbappe will introduced to them at the Parc des Princes at the start of next week having successfully completed negotiations with Monaco.
Le Parisien suggested it will be Javier Pastore, the Argentine star who was the first major signing after PSG were bought by their ambitious Qatari owners.

It's been almost a week since Neymar landed in Paris, and the world's most expensive player still can't play for his new club in the French league. According to Sky Sports, the team offered more than $143 million to execute the transfer, but the Premier League squad rejected it to Coutinho's dismay.
However, the former Athletic Bilbao manager was shaken by Neymar deciding to leave, as were the club on an institutional level. That's the easy part though, convincing Dortmund to sell given that they know how much Barca have to spend following the sale of Neymar is a different proposition altogether.
There are a few other nuggets of information proving Neymar is a case apart.
And the Spanish global took his chance with a goal and two assists in just 45 minutes on the field.
