Neymar's transfer certificate received by French federation

Neymar's transfer certificate received by French federation

Real Madrid and Manchester City have been informed that Kylian Mbappe wants to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

But, according to Marca, it is PSG who have won the race to sign the youngster, agreeing a "deal in principle" to sign the forward for €180 million (£163m), of which £18m is bonuses.

But ex-Monaco defender Abidal told BBC World Service Sport's World Football programme: "It's not the time to move".

ALong with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are also interested in the player. You have to confirm next season his level, play a big competition like the World Cup with the national team, if you have an opportunity.

Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi put in a personal call to Mbappe during the those discussions, assuring him that he remained on their radar. There is not too much pressure.

That commitment would by necessity raise the number of US forces in Afghanistan significantly, and put those troops - even in their advising and training roles - closer to combat.

PSG shocked the world with a world record signing of Neymar from Barcelona and they are still looking for additions to an already world class squad. "Without Neymar, PSG is a great club but with Neymar it's a little better".

The French league had said it still had not received the worldwide transfer certificate from the Spanish federation on Friday morning which would allow him to play, almost a week since he landed in Paris.

PSG were punished in 2014 for breach of FFP.

They were given a £20m fine, their spending was capped to £49m and they competed in the 2014-15 Champions League with just 21 players instead of the usual 25.
