Neymar can make his Paris St-Germain debut against Guingamp


Neymar can make his Paris St-Germain debut after French football authorities finally received clearance following his world-record move from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old can play for the Ligue 1 side away at Guingamp on Sunday.

The hold up was down to a delay in the arrival of the Brazilian player’s international transfer certificate from Spanish football authorities.

Brazil forward Neymar joined PSG for 222m euros (£200m) from Barcelona last week.

He had to watch from the stands as his new side beat Amiens in their first match of the new season.

How do international transfers work?

Transfers between clubs in different countries must include Fifa’s international transfer certificate (CIT). It is this document that the French football authorities were waiting to receive.

Neymar’s move to France has been troubled since the release clause in his contract was triggered.

Spain’s La Liga believes PSG are violating Uefa’s financial fair play (FFP) rules and Barcelona previously said they would report the French club to European football’s governing body, Uefa, for a FFP breach.
