Barcelona receive PSG money to free up Neymar
Neymar is free to make his PSG debut at Guingamp on Sunday after Barcelona confirmed on Friday the 222 million-euro ( 261 million) cheque used to pay his buyout clause had cleared. "The cheque has cleared and therefore puts in motion the process of the transfer," said a Barcelona club source. The French Football Federation (FFF) and French league (LFP) confirmed to AFP on Friday that the player's transfer certificate had been received from the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
That will allow him to be registered for the game at the Stade du Roudourou.
"Neymar's contract will be ratified during the afternoon. He will be able to play on Sunday," said the LFP. Neymar's move to the French giants smashed the world record transfer fee. However, he had to watch last weekend's 2-0 win over Amiens from the stands as the administrative formalities of the deal were not completed in time.
