PSG line up £80 million offer for Manchester City target Alexis Sanchez - Report

Paris Saint-Germain have been one of the most-talked about clubs after they struck a world record transfer of Neymar from Barcelona for a staggering £198million.

Mbappe will be the second most expensive player in football history, losing only his future teammate Neymar transfer which was worth 222 million euros.

Tabloids claim the 18-year-old Monaco forward will cost PSG £160m after the player's father persuaded him to leave now instead of staying with the French champions for another 12 months.

"On Friday 11 August, the FFF received the International Transfer Certificate from its Spanish counterparts, permitting the ratification of Neymar Jr's contract with Paris Saint-Germain, through to 30 June 2022", read a club statement.

Mbappe's explosive form last season, which saw him net five times in the Champions League, also earned him a call up to the French national team, where he has represented his country four times, although he is yet to open his account at global level.

Saying that, an average win over a poor side didn't really tell us much about this PSG team, and we should get a better idea of their performance levels following their game with Guingamp, especially if Neymar makes his debut.

The Brazilian worldwide is now free to make his Paris St-Germain debut on Sunday.

An agreement between the player's entourage and PSG has been reached and Real Madrid and Manchester City have been informed about his decision to move to Paris.

"We have expectations as players, as a club, and we need to fulfil them". News that will be welcomed by the auditors at Uefa, who will have their work cut out investigating PSG's finances if the Mbappe deal does turn out to be genuine. "This gives us the chance to sign new players that will keep us competitive".

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