Which brings us to the topic of Neymar, who could make his eagerly awaited debut in Sunday's game after a world-record €222 million transfer from Barcelona.

Mbappe netted 26 goals in 44 appearances during his breakthrough season for Monaco in 2016/17, with the club lifting the Ligue 1 title as well as making it to semi-finals of the Champions League.

Anything other than a spectacular debut showing from Neymar and the criticism will begin in earnest.

However, he had to watch last weekend's 2-0 win over Amiens from the stands as the administrative formalities of the deal were not completed in time.

PSG are thought to be looking to raise cash to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations following their world-record swoop for Neymar. "Nobody has said they're going to, but I'm going to try and get it!"

There has been no major transfer activity recently for Guingamp, although the last 10 days have seen left-back Franck Tabanou come in on a free transfer from Swansea, while goalkeeper Romain Salin has left to Sporting CP also on a free transfer.

"He's physically ready to play the whole ninety minutes", PSG coach Unai Emery told AFP.

Mbappe was leaning towards a move to real Madrid, but his father played in favor of "PSG", convincing her son to stay in France.

Barca have been linked with a bid for Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele to replace Neymar, with the Bundesliga club reportedly holding out for a sum of €150m for the 20-year-old. But, PSG, it seems, are not done yet as the French side looks set to make another mega signing in the form of one on the most sought-after youngsters in world football, Kylian Mbappe.

PSG have, however, already been busy this summer adding the likes of Neymar, Dani Alves and Yuri Berchiche to their ranks and will not be tabling a bid for another high-profile addition.

"If the French federation does not start proceedings with FIFA, we could still receive the ICT up until Saturday night", the league said.

Local reports say he has settled quickly, helped by the presence of four other Brazilians in PSG's squad.
