Memphis throws down challenge to PSG star Neymar

Memphis throws down challenge to PSG star Neymar

There are new challenges and I want to help write history.

Financial Fair Play rules launched by UEFA in 2011 mean that PSG will eventually have to show that Neymar's transfer was funded without incurring huge losses.

A ceremony will begin from 3:45pm (1345 GMT) with the kick-off put back quarter of an hour to 5:15pm to allow extra time for the player's unveiling before an expected sell-out crowd of more than 45,000.

Memphis caught the eye last season when he scored from his own half in a fixture against Toulouse.

His new club confirmed after the 25-year-old's move that will get the chance to wear 10 in Paris. Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious. Expensive is the fact there will now be more players at GBP 100m, more players at GBP 50m, more players at GBP 60m - that's the problem. Mourinho revealed the club are likely to appeal the two-game European ban handed to Phil Jones after verbally abusing anti-doping officials after the Europa League final win in May.

Supremely confident even as a teenager, Neymar was not overawed at playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Luis Suarez. I have trained in pre-season. I would (appeal) if I was him. "From today, I will do everything I can to help my new teammates, to open up new horizons for my club and to bring happiness to its millions of supporters around the world".

At 30 million euros a year, that contract will make Neymar the second highest-paid player in the world - behind Carlos Tevez and his 38 million euros a year at Shanghai Shenhua in China but ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo's 23.6 million euros annual salary at Real Madrid.

Neymar completed his record-shattering transfer from Barcelona to Paris St Germain (PSG) Thursday, signing a five-year deal with the French club after they triggered his 222 million euros ($263 million) release clause.

PSG reached the last eight of the Champions League last season - knocked out by a Neymar-inspired Barcelona - and were beaten to the French title by Monaco.
