The football world is abuzz with talk of Neymar's record-shattering transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, but clearly it is not just Barcelona fans disturbed by his looming switch to Ligue 1.

The 25-year-old was officially announced as a PSG player on Thursday evening, but the paperwork might still come too late for PSG's season opener against Amiens on Saturday.

That means the world's soon-to-be most expensive player could debut at the 18,250-capacity Stade de Roudourou, home to unheralded Guingamp.

And judging by the Brittany-based side's brilliant reaction to the news, they might prefer him to wait a little longer.

Guingamp finished an impressive 10th last term and have recently added 28-year-old ex-Swansea fullback Franck Tabanou to their squad.

PSG take on Amiens at home on Saturday, August 5, before travelling to Guingamp eight days later.
