NEYMAR tersenyum saat menantikan laga debutnya untuk Paris Saint-Germain melawan Toulouse menyusul rekor transfer Rp3,4 triliun dari Barcelona.

Striker Brasil ini harus menunggu penampilan perdananya mengenakan jersey PSG lantaran ada kendala dalam dokumen kontrak, setelah federasi sepak bola Spanyol masih menahan sertifikat transfer internasionalnya.

Neymar melewatkan kemenangan pembukaan musim liga utama Prancis, Ligue 1 PSG mengalahkan Amiens, namun pesepakbola berusia 25 tahun itu berhasil melakukan debutnya pada Minggu lalu dengan kemenangan PSG 3-0 atas Guingamp, dan dia mampu menunjukkan performanya.

Mantan penyerang Santos ini mencetak satu gol dan memberikan umpan untuk Edinson Cavani dalam laga di Brittany, dan Neymar harus menjadi penonton saat PSG bertemu Toulouse.

Bintang yang berbakat ini telah dinominasikan untuk penghargaan Pemain Terbaik FIFA 2017 bersaing mantan rekan satu timnya Luis Suarez dan Lionel Messi, dan diyakini itu pula yang menjadi salah satu alasan utama mengapa Neymar pindah ke Prancis adalah untuk memenangkan penghargaan individual.

Menjelang pertandingan pertamanya di Parc des Princes, atlet Brasil itu terlihat memeluk manajernya Unai Emery menjelang sesi dengan suasana hati yang tidak tampak kecewa atas hengkangnya Blaise Matuidi.

Matuidi, 30 tahun bergabung dengan Juventus dalam kesepakatan transfer Rp314 miliar pekan ini, setelah pemain timnas Prancis itu hanya memiliki sisa satu tahun dalam kontraknya di PSG seperti dilansir MailOnline.

NEYMAR was all smiles as he limbered up for his Paris Saint-Germain home debut against Toulouse following his 198million pounsterling world-record move from Barcelona.

The Brazil forward was made to wait for his first appearance in a PSG shirt due to a delay in his paperwork, with the Spanish federation holding onto his international transfer certificate.

Neymar missed the Ligue 1 opening-day victory over Amiens, but the 25-year-old was cleared to make his debut last Sunday in the 3-0 victory over Guingamp, and he lived up to his huge billing.

The former Santos forward scored one and laid on an assist for Edinson Cavani in the one-sided contest in Brittany, and Neymar heads into the game against Toulouse on a high.

The gifted star has been nominated for the Best FIFA Men's Player 2017 award along with his former team-mates Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, and it is believed one of the main reasons why Neymar moved to France was to win individual awards.

Ahead of his first game at the Parc des Princes, the Brazilian was seen embracing his manager Unai Emery ahead of the session with the mood not appearing to be dampened by the departure of Blaise Matuidi.

The 30-year-old joined Juventus in an 18m poundsterling deal this week, with the France international having had just one year remaining on his contract at the Paris outfit.
