PSG will face added pressure for major silverware with Neymar signing

Reports have suggested that PSG have finally agreed a five-year deal worth £450m (after add ons and bonuses) to acquire Neymar from Barcelona. The Brazilian superstar is set to arrive in Paris on Friday to finalize the move that will make him the most expensive footballer in history. While the deal is yet to be finalized, it looks to be increasingly more like an inevitability at this point, as Barcelona have accepted Neymar's request to not take part in training this week.

Marco Verratti faces added pressure this season after his agent’s remarks regarding potential Barcelona transfer

Marco Verratti has been the subject of a potential move to Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain for the past couple of weeks now. The Catalan giants have been quite vocal about how keen they are on acquiring the midfielder's services, but PSG are reluctant to let him go, regardless of what would likely be a considerable fee. His current contract is set to keep him in the French capital until 2021, without a release clause. Earlier this week, Verratti's agent, Donato Di Campli, commented on the transfer saga and suggested that PSG and its owners are unfairly doing whatever it takes to hold on to Verratti, despite the midfielder having an interest to join Barcelona.
