With the Brazil global already on board after his €222 million move from Barcelona, PSG have now focused the majority of their attention on securing the second star name they see as vital to the regeneration of their project, Mbappe. "In the current context, Riyadh and its allies would be pleased to see FIFA withdraw the organisation of the 2022 World Cup football in Qatar", Jean-Marc Rickli, director of global risks at the Geneva Center for Security Policy told a French website.
In a move that had been speculated on for a week or so leading to the official story, Barcelona FC transferred the services of Neymar to PSG for the biggest amount in soccer history.
That came just after Neymar's squad number for the Ligue 1 giants was confirmed.
They want to put to bed any doubts they belong at European football's top table.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin is coming off an 11-3 season, which included a win over Western Michigan in the Cotton Bowl. Including the two matchups with Wisconsin, Notre Dame will play seven games against Big Ten teams through 2021.
PSG Manager Unai Emery would not confirm the new No. 10 would play, however, although he noted on Friday (via the BBC) that Neymar was "physically ready to start".
For the record, Monaco are in action on Sunday in Ligue 1 as they take on Dijon away from home. Sure, they want to regain the league title they relinquished to Monaco last season after four successive triumphs - but they were confident of doing that even before they spent €222m on adding Neymar to their ranks. But domestic success will be only part of what PSG are aiming to achieve with Neymar in their ranks.
Neymar had his moments in the spotlight, including after his virtuoso performance in Barcelona's memorable 6-1 win over PSG in the Champions League in March, but those moments were far too infrequent for his liking. This was followed by increased rumors and murmurs that PSG had been very interested in acquiring Neymar and that he was likewise interested in joining their team.
However, not everyone is impressed with the transfer. It becomes very hard to respect the financial fair play.
