The league however said Neymar could still be qualified for Sunday's game if PSG and the French federation decide against referring the issue to FIFA after the deadline expires.

Paris Saint-Germain's world record swoop for Neymar does not include the image rights for the Brazilian, according to his lawyers.

The former Santos forward was then expected to play on Sunday night at Guingamp at the 18,000-capacity Stade du Roudourou, but PSG fans might have to wait a bit longer to see the star in action.

The Spanish boss added: "He's feeling good in training, we've worked on tactics and dead-ball situations".

That certainty was expressed by head coach Unai Emery as he prepared PSG for the trip west to Brittany. "Guingamp enjoyed a great season last time campaign, they have won their first match this term, and their stadium will be packed for our visit".

The likes of Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne are also capable of competing against the best in France's top flight, so the idea that Neymar has moved to a league completely lacking in quality is a complete nonstarter.

In order to ward off any future interest from other clubs, Real Madrid have slapped a €700m (£634m) release clause on playmaker Isco when he signs a new five-year-deal. That used to be an outrageous amount.

Danny Welbeck brought the Gunners level just before half-time and, though Vardy put Leicester back into the lead, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench to secure a thrilling 4-3 victory.

If Barca cannot seal a move for Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, they will set their sights on Christian Eriksen and Manchester United transfer target Ivan Perisic. "The whole team must be at its best", Ikoko said.

Guingamp know to expect the unexpected from Neymar, but can the same be said of the 25-year-old toward his maiden Ligue 1 opponents? I do not doubt that this will be quickly solved.

The man from Mogi das Cruzes is about to get his first taste of the non-Champions League part of the challenge that he has taken on by moving to PSG from Barca, and it promises to be fascinating for all involved.
