According to respected French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, Neymar has already signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday in Barcelona and will be officially unveiled as a PSG player on Saturday.

Also according to Bouhafsi, Neymar wants to make his PSG debut on Saturday’s Ligue 1 opener against Amiens at the Parc des Princes. It’s still unclear whether or not that will happen, but if a club pays €222 million to sign him, they’ll probably allow him to play whenever the hell he wants to play.

We’re still waiting for an official word from PSG about the deal, but we do know that Neymar has paid his own release clause and should be announced as a PSG footballer any minute now.
