Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) announced on Twitter that they have found their new manager in the form of former Borussia Dortmund coach, Thomas Tuchel.

Despite spending a world record 222 million euros ($265.8 million) to attract Neymar during the close season, the Ligue 1 side were eliminated in the last-16 of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

He added: "I look forward to working with all these great players, all of whom are among the best on the planet".

Former Real Madrid attacker Robinho has given his opinion on Los Blancos' pursuit of Paris Saint- Germain star Neymar, according to report.

Both Marcelo and Neymar were named in Brazilian manager Tite's 23-man squad for the World Cup this summer, but the left-back has revealed that talk in Russian Federation will be exclusively fixed on the tournament and not on club football.

"There is extraordinary potential in Paris and this is the most exciting challenge that I have received".

On Sunday, the central defender was speaking to Canal Football after being crowned champions of France and Marquinhos backed what president Nasser Al Khelaifi said, " I have the feeling that Neymar will stay.

"He abides by very strong principles of playing spectacular and clinical football that has always been the foundation of German football, especially on the worldwide scene".

He will be tasked with ensuring that they continue to dominate at home while finally making a major impression in the Champions League, having failed to go beyond the quarter-finals in the Qatar era. The thinking seems to be that a club so bereft of history, many of whose players have turned their back on less lucrative, but more competitive environments to move to the French capital, don't have the mental fortitude to compete with Europe's bona fide elites.

A falling-out with the Dortmund hierarchy cost him as job, and he had been out of work since then.

Emery will take charge of his final PSG game against Caen this weekend.
