"Neymar - the football version", ran their headline in a joke about how the most expensive transfer in football history has dominated news without the 25-year-old forward even kicking a ball yet.
Neymar's world-record 222 million euros ($262 million) transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain was completed last week, but the Brazil worldwide has yet to be granted permission to play.
Neymar signed for PSG for 222 million Euros which is a record fee after months of speculation.
But PSG confirmed in a statement on Friday that Neymar has now been given the green light to make his debut at the Stade de Roudourou.
'It's odd that a player does not want to stay in Barca.
The Ligue 1 giants have convinced the player and his entourage that there won't be any problems with regards to the club staying in line with UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.
Over the past seven days, national sports daily L'Equipe has devoted 37 pages of coverage to the Brazilian superstar's arrival in the French capital. The club did not immediately answer a message from The Associated Press seeking comments.
Xavi says he finds it "bizarre" that Neymar wanted to leave Barcelona and compared his world-record move to Luis Figo's departure from the club.
It was reported that a banking issue had prevented Barca from sending the necessary document to the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), who in turn were required to pass the information to the FFF.
Tax authorities in Brazil are yet to decide if they concur with the figure and will agree to settle.
At a pre-match news conference, PSG boss Unai Emery said Neymar was "physically ready to start" the game.
"I do not need to tell you that there are a few problems within the Spanish federation". "The transfer is complete, so this should not last".
"Neymar will start on the left at the cost of Pastore", the article claimed. Neymar has since returned to training with his teammates.
