Neymar given clearance to make PSG debut at Guingamp on Sunday

PSG plays Guingamp on Sunday.

Although the Brazilian completed his world record transfer last week he was unable to play against Amiens because the payment from PSG to Barcelona had not cleared.

The French FA (FFF) has confirmed it has collected the document, stating via their official Twitter account: "The FFF confirms the receipt of the transfer certificate of Neymar, which was sent by the RFEF".

The French league added it "does not understand" why its Spanish counterpart "refuses to accept the payment for the buyout clause for Neymar".

The 25-year-old was unable to make his maiden PSG appearance in the 2-0 win over Amiens at Parc des Princes last Saturday because Barca had not confirmed that they had received the fee in full, which meant his worldwide transfer certificate (ITC) could not be granted.

An International Transfer Certificate (ITC) is required for all international transfers, says football's governing body FIFA.

"I don't need to tell you that the Spanish federation is having some problems at the moment", Le Graet told L'Equipe.

Madrid too have been linked with the 18-year-old, who scored 26 goals for Monaco in his first full senior season, helping the principality club win Ligue 1 and reach the Champions League semi-finals.

PSG are now hoping their £360m front line can help them dominate Ligue 1 and the Champions League. "The other players here are also some great players, so together we can get better and grow".

Kylian Mbappe is closing in on a £163million move to Paris Saint-Germain in another staggering summer coup for the French giants.

Lyon's youthful side started with a 4-0 thumping of Strasbourg last week and travel out to Brittany to take on Rennes today.
