Neymar has signed a deal with sportswear giant Puma after ending his contract with Nike early.

Brazil superstar Neymar recently announced the end of his association with American giant Nike two years before the end of a contract that was reportedly worth €100million.

Puma said in a release the Paris Saint-Germain forward will don the "legendary Puma King football boot", while also becoming a brand ambassador off the pitch and styling the company's "lifestyle, training, and sport-inspired footwear and apparel products".

Speaking about the new link-up, Neymar – who tweeted about the announcement with the tagline "The KING is back" – said his decision was in part inspired by Puma's past associations with legends such as Pele and Diego Maradona.

"I grew up watching videos of great football legends such as Pele, [Johan] Cruyff, [Lothar] Matthaus, Eusebio and Maradona," quotes attributed to Neymar in the release read. 

"These were the KINGs of the pitch, the KINGs of my sport. I wish to bring back the legacy that those athletes created on the pitch. They each played in PUMA, and each of them created their magic in The KING.

"Every time I lace my boots, my KING boots, I will do anything to achieve all of my dreams to honour my name and that of all those great ones who wore the KING before me. This will be my PUMA history. The KING is back!"

Neymar had been associated with Nike since the age of 13, while it represents a significant boost for Puma who have lacked a huge global name since Usain Bolt's retirement from athletics.

Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden added: "Neymar Jr joining our PUMA Family is fantastic. 

"He is one of the best players in the world and extremely influential for the global football and youth culture. We are very excited and look forward to working with him both on and off the pitch."

Jadon Sancho has been tipped to swap Borussia Dortmund for Manchester United.

But the England international remains in Germany and United are growing frustrated.

Could United move on from the Dortmund sensation?

 

TOP STORY – UNITED READY TO PULL PLUG ON SANCHO

Manchester United are ready to give up on signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to the Daily Star.

Sancho has emerged as United's top transfer target, but the Premier League giants have been unable to negotiate a deal with Dortmund.

With United and Dortmund apart in their valuation of Sancho, the Red Devils are frustrated and could turn to alternative targets.

Juventus attacker Douglas Costa, Atletico Madrid's Joao Felix and Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale are possible options.

 

ROUND-UP

- Marca claims Barcelona are contemplating a loan move for Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, who left Camp Nou for the Gunners in 2011. Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked, while Barca will only target the Spaniard if they are able to part with Nelson Semedo.

- Staying at Camp Nou and Barca are targeting Sevilla's star centre-back Jules Kounde. The front page of Saturday's Mundo Deportivo says Barca could wait 12 months to secure a deal. Mundo Deportivo also reports Emerson could be included in a deal to prise Lyon captain Memphis Depay to the embattled LaLiga giants.

Tottenham have had an offer for Torino striker Andrea Belotti rejected, according to Gianluca Di Marzio. Spurs proposed a loan deal with an option to buy the Italy international for €50million (£46m). Di Marzio also claims Tottenham will not be signing Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik, who has been linked to Roma and Juventus.

Chelsea are ready to loan out winger Calum Hudson-Odoi, says 90Min. The Englishman has previously been linked to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

- Remaining at Stamford Bridge and Fabrizio Romano reports Chelsea will consider a move for West Ham's Declan Rice after having a bid accepted for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Inter are ready to sell defender Milan Skriniar as they eye Hellas Verona's Marash Kumbulla, according to Calciomercato. It comes as Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte tries to sign Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante and full-back Marcos Alonso.

Paris Saint-Germain have signed utility player Alessandro Florenzi from Roma on a season-long loan with the option to buy.

The 36-cap Italy international emerged through Roma's academy in 2011 – initially as a midfielder – and has made 280 appearances for the Serie A club.

He was named captain in 2019 but spent the second half of last season on loan with Valencia, appearing 14 times in all competitions.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Wednesday he was in the market for a new right-back and a deal has now been agreed with Roma.

The French champions, who have also been linked with Arsenal's Hector Bellerin, announced Florenzi's arrival on their official website on Friday.

"I'm really proud and happy to become a Paris Saint-Germain player," the 29-year-old said.  

"They're one of the major clubs in Europe today, confirmed by their run to the Champions League final last month.

"I'm keen to give my best for Paris Saint-Germain and the supporters. We have extraordinary challenges ahead of us this season.

"It will be a pleasure and an honour to face them alongside my new team-mates, who are among the best players in the world."

PSG, without seven first-team players due to positive coronavirus tests, lost 1-0 to Lens on Thursday in their opening game of the 2020-21 campaign.

Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas is hoping his side can capitalise on Paris Saint-Germain's "moment of weakness" in Sunday's Classique.

PSG started their Ligue 1 season in disappointing fashion on Thursday, as the champions slumped to a 1-0 defeat at newly promoted Lens.

The Champions League finalists were without seven first-team stars, however, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos and Keylor Navas having all been in isolation after testing positive for coronavirus.

Thomas Tuchel was not overly concerned by the defeat, acknowledging after the game that he was unsure when his key players would be able to return – though Neymar subsequently confirmed on Friday that he had returned to training.

PSG thrashed Marseille 4-0 at Parc des Princes in the corresponding fixture last season, but Villas-Boas – whose side finished second in the shortened Ligue 1 campaign before resuming with a 3-2 win over Brest – is hoping to make the most of coming up against a possibly weakened side.

"I still have ambition. We lost 4-0, but we finished second, closer to first than third. Each match is worth three points, even if a Classique is special," Villas-Boas told a news conference.

"What I said last year still applies. Unfortunately for them, they are in a moment of weakness. We have the ambition to play and to win.

"It's an important game. We want to take advantage of the absences and lack of training of those who will return. It might be a chance. We saw that against Lens. It's a good time to give this joy to the supporters."

However, Villas-Boas conceded the uncertainty over just who will be available for PSG on Sunday also poses problems for Marseille.

"What is annoying is the lack of information and the timing. There is uncertainty over how many players Tuchel can pick back up," he said. 

"But it is clear that they cannot be 100 per cent. We had players in this situation and it's tough. But I think after Thursday's loss they will come back strong.

"They want to get players back. I am preparing the team to play against PSG with all their strength."

Neymar confirmed he has tested negative for coronavirus and has been given the all-clear to resume training with Paris Saint-Germain ahead of Sunday's Ligue 1 clash with Marseille.

The Brazil international was one of seven players ruled out of PSG's 1-0 loss to Lens in their opening game of the season on Thursday after contracting COVID-19.

However, head coach Thomas Tuchel was hopeful of welcoming back at least a few of his quarantined players for this weekend's Classique with Marseille.

Former Barcelona forward Neymar is among those now back in contention after completing a period of self-isolation and being given the go-ahead to link up with his team-mates.

"I went back to training, super happy #CORONAOUT," Neymar posted on Twitter on Friday, accompanied by a 'zany face' emoji.

An error from third-choice goalkeeper Marcin Bulka gifted what proved to be the winning goal to Ignatius Ganago in PSG's loss to Lens at Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

The reigning champions were also without Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos and Keylor Navas for the match.

Asked about the possibility of welcoming back those players against Marseille, Tuchel said: "If possible, a few players could play.

"But if they play, they would only have a leg work-out before then. If Neymar, Di Maria play, yes, but they would play after two weeks without training too.

"Physically, I can't wait for them to be the decisive guys. It's always risky. We have to talk with the players, the doctors too."

Neymar and Angel Di Maria remain doubtful to return for Paris Saint-Germain in Sunday's Classique against Marseille, head coach Thomas Tuchel said.

The superstar duo were among a large contingent of players to miss the Ligue 1 champions' opening-game loss to new boys Lens on Thursday after contracting coronavirus.

With Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe also among those to miss out, PSG slipped to a 1-0 defeat with Tuchel later saying a draw was about the best his side – whose campaign was also delayed because they reached the Champions League final – could have hoped for.

Following the game, Tuchel was asked if PSG may have more options for the clash with fierce rivals Marseille but says the limited training Neymar or Di Maria would have makes their availability unclear.

"I do not know exactly. If possible, a few players could play. But if they play, they would only have a leg work out," Tuchel said. 

"What are we going to do? We can give a few minutes. If Neymar, Di Maria play, yes, but they would play after two weeks without training too. 

"Physically, I can't wait for them to be the decisive guys. It's always risky. We have to talk with the players, the doctors too."

Eduardo Camavinga is highly coveted following his exploits for Ligue 1 outfit Rennes.

The 17-year-old's stock has also risen after making his first France appearance.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly vying for his signature.

 

TOP STORY – GIANTS GO HEAD-TO-HEAD FOR CAMAVINGA

Real Madrid face competition from Paris Saint-Germain to sign Rennes sensation Eduardo Camavinga, according to Marca.

Camavinga, who made his international debut for France on Tuesday, has been heavily linked with a move to LaLiga champions Madrid.

However, Ligue 1 holders PSG are reportedly determined to keep the 17-year-old in France.

The front page of Friday's AS Diario adds Camavinga, PSG star Kylian Mbappe and RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano are being targeted by Madrid in 2021.

 

ROUND-UP

- TyC Sports claims Barcelona have made a new offer for Inter forward Lautaro Martinez. Repeatedly tipped to swap Inter for Barca, Martinez's agents are believed to be in Spain to discuss another bid.

Ronald Koeman has handed Barca a four-player shortlist, including Lyon's Memphis Depay, Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Inter defender Stefan de Vrij and Manchester City defender Eric Garcia, claims Marca.

- FootMercato reports Madrid are considering a move for City attacker Riyad Mahrez.

- Sky Sport says Inter are convinced they will sign Arturo Vidal from Barca. It comes as Cagliari and Rennes try to sign veteran Nerazzurri defender Diego Godin, while Inter reportedly close in on Parma full-back Matteo Darmian.

- Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has agreed a provisional contract to join Juventus as the Serie A champions wait on Barca veteran Luis Suarez, claims Sky Sports Italia. Juve have also been linked with Roma's Edin Dzeko, Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik and Alvaro Morata of Atletico Madrid. Andrea Pirlo's Juve have also eyed former forward Moise Kean but Everton are unwilling to do a loan deal, reports Gianluca Di Marzio.

- Fabrizio Romano reports Juve striker Gonzalo Higuain, meanwhile, is set to complete his move to David Beckham's Inter Miami in MLS.

Leicester City want to sign Saint-Etienne defender Wesley Fofana but former Foxes boss Claude Puel is reluctant to part with the centre-back, according to Le10 Sport.

Thomas Tuchel shrugged off Paris Saint-Germain's loss at newly promoted Lens, insisting a draw is the best result the depleted Ligue 1 champions could have hoped for in their season opener.

PSG's title defence started with a 1-0 defeat away to Lens – the Champions League runners-up missing seven first-team players on Thursday.

Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi were among those absent as PSG succumbed to Ignatius Ganago's 57th-minute goal following an error from goalkeeper Marcin Bulka.

PSG managed just one shot on target across 90 minutes, despite 78.1 per cent possession, and head coach Tuchel said he was not surprised by the result.

"I don't think we could have done any better tonight," Tuchel told Canal+. "I was happy with the first half we had. We controlled the game completely, and we had possession.

"We struggled to create scoring chances today. No opportunities? Yes, I agree. But we have a small group, and we are missing the players who make the difference.

"With a young team, we made a decisive mistake and we couldn't take advantage of their mistakes. A draw is the best we could have hoped for."

While PSG were in action, speculation regarding Roma and Italy full-back Alessandro Florenzi intensified.

According to reports, Florenzi is set to join PSG on loan with an option to buy as the French powerhouse look to replace right-back Thomas Meunier, who moved to Borussia Dortmund.

Asked about Florenzi post-match, Tuchel – who dismissed a move for Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi – said: "I hope that will be resolved. I am very optimistic for him."

Paris Saint-Germain's depleted squad could not get the Ligue 1 champions' title defence off to a winning start as they were beaten 1-0 away on Lens on Thursday.

Thomas Tuchel was without seven first-team players due to positive coronavirus tests, with Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi among those missing, and their makeshift XI failed to break down the hosts.

Lens went closest in the first half as Ignatius Ganago struck the right-hand post after fine individual work, but otherwise PSG controlled proceedings, seeing 78 per cent of the ball in the opening 45 minutes, even though they did not threaten particularly often.

PSG continued to dictate the ball but struggled to create chances and a Marcin Bulka error gifted Lens the lead in the 57th minute, with Ganago's goal ultimately proving decisive.

Despite the unfamiliar look of the PSG side, Lens were unable to put them under a great deal of pressure, though Ganago did go close in the 17th minute when he hit the post after leaving the visitors' defence in knots.

At the other end, Kays Ruiz-Atil showed plenty of promise for PSG, the 18-year-old winger shooting just wide with a nonchalant attempt from just outside the penalty area.

The other teenager in PSG's starting XI, Arnaud Kalimuendo, nearly sniffed out a chance just before half-time as he looked to latch on to Marco Verratti's lofted pass, but Jean-Louis Leca rushed out of the goal to end the danger just in time.

Bulka was significantly less commanding in the PSG net just before the hour, however, as he squandered possession from a short, simple pass, and Ganago took full advantage as he smashed past the youngster to make it 1-0.

It should have been 2-0 soon after, but Simon Banza attempted a diving-header from point-blank range when it made more sense to use his foot, and Bulka made the block.

Florian Sotoca should have done better with a header across goal 11 minutes from time, but PSG never looked like equalising as they succumbed to defeat.

What does it mean? PSG unsurprisingly struggle

It would be fair to say that many considered Lens – only promoted from Ligue 2 last term – as favourites for this encounter, given PSG's situation.

While they saw way more of the ball than Lens - 78.1 per cent to 21.9 - they had immense difficulty creating chances, getting just one shot on target across the 90 minutes.

As a result, PSG's run of scoring in 32 successive away Ligue 1 matches – a joint-record – came to an end.

Ganago keeps the PSG defence on their toes

A recent arrival from Nice, the Cameroonian was a real livewire, having three shots and touching the ball second-most often among Lens players before his late withdrawal.

He was unlucky to hit the post in the first half and then went on to get the winning goal, his pressing paying off handsomely. He has netted more (three) against PSG in Ligue 1 than any other side.

Bulka to blame

The young goalkeeper was only playing because of Navas' illness and Sergio Rico's ineligibility, but in the end he was culpable for the defeat. He gifted Lens the winner, with this other two saves ultimately worthless.

What's next?

The action comes thick and fast over the coming weeks for PSG, who are next in action against Marseille in Le Classique on Sunday, their second fixture in a run of four matches in 11 days. Lens go to Lorient on the same day.

Paris Saint-Germain are set to launch their Ligue 1 title defence on Thursday with a drastically weakened squad and a host of youngsters.

Coach Thomas Tuchel named his squad as PSG departed for Lens, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria among the absentees.

A number of COVID-19 positive tests have left the Champions League runners-up depleted for the start of their domestic campaign.

As well as the absent star attacking trident, it has been reported in France that Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos and Keylor Navas have tested positive for the coronavirus.

They will all miss the match at Lens, along with Sergio Rico, who joined too late from Sevilla to be registered for the match.

With Navas and Rico unavailable, young Polish goalkeeper Marcin Bulka will start the game, Tuchel has confirmed.

Several French youngsters feature in the 20-man squad, including midfielders Bandiougou Fadiga and Kays Ruiz-Atil, goalkeeper Garissone Innocent, striker Arnaud Kalimuendo, defender Timothee Pembele.

Dutch defender Mitchel Bakker may get another chance to impress after the 20-year-old made a rare senior appearance in the Coupe de la Ligue final, while his 17-year-old compatriot Xavi Simons, a midfielder who began his career at Barcelona, also joins the first-team squad.

There is experienced talent to complement the youngsters, with the likes of Julian Draxler, Juan Bernat, Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, Marco Verratti and Presnel Kimpembe making the trip.

Real Madrid are prepared to pay to see Gareth Bale exit, while Manchester United have reportedly made progress in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho.

Bale has found himself on the outer in Madrid and has constantly been linked with a move despite being contracted until 2022.

The Welshman's huge salary is reportedly making it hard for the LaLiga champions to move him on, but they may be prepared to pay to see Bale exit.

 

TOP STORY – MADRID WILLING TO PAY HALF OF BALE'S WAGES

Real Madrid would pay half of Bale's salary to see him make a move, according to The Telegraph.

Bale has been linked with a return to the Premier League, with former club Tottenham reportedly interested.

The latest news could pave the way for Bale to finally leave Madrid after seven years at the club.

ROUND-UP

- Manchester United look to have made some progress in their Sancho chase. ESPN reports the Premier League giants have made progress around wages and agent fees, but still need to find a deal with Borussia Dortmund.

- Houssem Aouar is linked with a move from Lyon, with a switch to the Premier League mooted. The Mirror says Arsenal are keen on the midfielder, who is believed to be a target for Manchester City.

- Barcelona are reportedly facing a dilemma. Mundo Deportivo reports the LaLiga giants are weighing up whether to rely on 17-year-old Ansu Fati or sign Lyon star Memphis Depay ahead of 2020-21.

- There seems to be uncertainty over Alexandre Lacazette's future at Arsenal. ESPN claims the forward is seeking clarification over his role at the Premier League club.

- Stephan El Shaarawy could be set for a return to Europe. Telefoot says Paris Saint-Germain are in contact with the Shanghai Shenhua forward's agents and Juventus, former club Roma and Atletico Madrid are also interested.

- While Watford were relegated from the Premier League, Troy Deeney could yet remain in the top flight. The Daily Mail says the forward is set to leave the club to join a Premier League side.

Fulham have signed goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan deal.

The Premier League club have the option to make the move permanent should the France international impress at Craven Cottage.

Areola, who was back-up to Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid while on loan in the Spanish capital last season, says speaking to Fulham boss Scott Parker helped to convince him to move to England.

"I am very happy everything is done," he told FFCtv. "Scott Parker called me and I had a good feeling. He said he really wanted me.

"Fulham is a historic club in London and I have heard a lot about the stadium.

"I hope this season will be a good one for us. I want to bring my energy and do everything for this team to keep us where we belong to be."

Areola, who won LaLiga and the Supercopa de Espana with Madrid last term, is a three-time Ligue 1 champion with PSG.

He was also part of the France squad that won the World Cup in Russia two years ago.

Fulham won promotion back to the Premier League last season, beating Brentford 2-1 in the Championship play-off final.

Eduardo Camavinga is "one of the best players in Ligue 1" who would only make Paris Saint-Germain a better side, the champions' head coach Thomas Tuchel has declared.

The teenage midfielder has attracted interest from several teams across Europe, including Real Madrid, after an impressive breakthrough campaign for Rennes last term.

He became France's youngest debutant since 1914 by earning his first cap at the age of 17 years and 303 days in the 4-2 Nations League win over Croatia on Tuesday.

PSG sporting director Leonardo revealed earlier this week the club are monitoring the youngster with a view to making a move further down the line.

And boss Tuchel has welcomed that news while at the same time acknowledging the Champions League finalists will not necessarily succeed in landing their top targets.

"Of course, he would be a good signing. He's one of the best players in Ligue 1 and has a great future," Tuchel said at a news conference on Wednesday.

"But I don't want to talk too much about a player who is not mine. He plays in a good club that will play in the Champions League."

A smiling Tuchel added: "We are not playing Monopoly, it is not like that. But I am not going to say no."

PSG are also in the market for a new right-back as Tuchel looks to widen the number of players available to choose from, with Arsenal's Hector Bellerin a rumoured option,

"We're looking for a right-back - it's no secret," he said. "A big difference between my first and my second season was the size of the group - we had more reliable players.

"It is important to have competition and alternative options. Now we have the proof that with a group like this, a [good] mentality and a little luck, we can create something special."

Tuchel won a clean sweep of domestic honours last season and guided PSG to the Champions League final, where they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich on August 23.

The German coach is due to be out of contract at the end of 2020-21 but is in no rush to discuss fresh terms at the Parc des Princes.

"My contractual situation does not change anything for me," he said. "The most important thing is to create a team to continue to progress.

"Afterwards, we can discuss or not, but that does not change anything in my daily work."

PSG, without seven first-team players because of coronavirus concerns, kick off their Ligue 1 title defence with a rescheduled clash against newly promoted Lens on Thursday.

Thomas Tuchel is expecting a "very difficult" match against Lens in Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 opener after a number of players tested positive for coronavirus.

Reigning champions PSG are without seven players for Thursday's clash at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria among their absentees.

The Champions League finalists have had less than three weeks off since ending their 2019-20 campaign and Tuchel admits it may take time for his side to find their rhythm.

"It's a little weird to start with a very difficult match in Lens," he said at his pre-match news conference. "Normally, after a final, we have a preparation phase with friendly matches. 

"But starting with a Ligue 1 match in Lens, it's going to be very hard. For me, it's important that we don't expect too much. We will give everything, but we will also be humble.

"We are looking to find solutions. The situation is more complicated with seven players affected by COVID-19, but we have confidence."

Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos and Keylor Navas are reported to be the other players who tested positive for COVID-19, leaving Tuchel with limited options.

PSG face a run of four league matches in 10 days and Tuchel is unsure when his quarantined stars will be given the all clear to return to action.

"I don't want to say too much, but the players who tested positive feel better," he said. "But resuming training is another thing. 

"They will resume individual programmes, but I have doubts for Sunday against Marseille. We'll have to wait to find out. We are very responsible and careful with them."

In better news for PSG, Marco Verratti has been deemed fit to play a part after recovering from a calf problem that plagued him in the latter stages of last season.

Tuchel also confirmed Julian Draxler, Presnel Kimpembe, Thilo Kehrer and Colin Dagba are available for the trip to Lens, who lost 2-1 to Nice in their first game following promotion.

Marcin Bulka will start in goal, meanwhile, as Navas is out and Sergio Rico joined too late to be registered for the match.

"They played a very good match in Nice on the first day," Tuchel said of opponents Lens. "It's not easy because our last match was a Champions League final. 

"It won't be the same level, but we have to be focused to try to win. I have confidence in all the players who will play tomorrow."
