Neymar to debut for PSG today

As the hysteria mounts ahead of Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain debut on Sunday focus switched from his record transfer fee to the question of which star would make way for the Brazilian.

The daily Le Parisien suggested it would be Javier Pastore, the Argentine who was the first major signing after PSG were bought by their Qatari owners.

Sports daily L'Equipe saw things differently, though.

"Neymar - the football version," ran their headline in a joke about how the most expensive transfer in football history has dominated news without the 25-year-old forward even kicking a ball yet.

"A trio of Neymar, Pastore and di Maria will support Cavani," they predicted.

In the tiny Brittany town of Guingamp, with a population of around 7,000, tickets for the match have been changing hands for a king's ransom as the Stade du Roduourou has a capacity of just over 15,000.

"We could have filled a stadium of 40,000 seats with no problem at all," Guingamp president Bertrand Desplat told local newspaper Le Telegramme.
