French Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (FFF) for the Brazil­ian to be reg­is­tered.

The cer­tifi­cate has to ar­rive with the FFF be­fore to­mor­row if Ney­mar is to take to the pitch at the Stade du Roudourou this week­end.

“Once we re­ceive con­fir­ma­tion from Barcelona, the trans­fer (cer­tifi­cate) will be (sent) im­me­di­ately,” a spokesper­son for the RFEF told AFP.

Ney­mar’s move to the French giants that smashed the world record trans­fer fee was an­nounced on Au­gust 3.

How­ever, he had to watch last week­end’s 2-0 win over Amiens from the stands as the ad­min­is­tra­tive for­mal­i­ties of the deal were not com­pleted in time.

De­spite the de­lay in reg­is­ter­ing one of the world’s best play­ers, FFF pres­i­dent Noel Le Graet re­mained con­fi­dent Ney­mar would be able to make his bow at the Stade du Roudourou.

“There is no rea­son for this hold-up to con­tinue,” he told French sports daily L’Equipe.

“I do not doubt that this will be quickly solved.” AFP
