An atomic bomb was dropped on France Ligue 1 this offseason, as Paris Saint-Germain was able to extract Neymar, one of the world's best football players, from Barcelona. The move cost PSG the princely sum of €222 million, in addition to the reported €40 million per year wage that they will be paying to Neymar. In total, the move is expected to cost PSG roughly €400 million over the life of Neymar's deal.

Unfortunately for football fans, Neymar isn't expected to play this weekend, as he will reportedly be flying into France on Thursday. The divorce between Barcelona and Neymar was a long and drawn-out process, and Neymar will need some practice before he steps onto the field for PSG.

That shouldn't be an issue this weekend, however, as PSG will be playing host to Amiens. Even without Neymar in the line-up, PSG is expected to crush Amiens.

In addition, the club will likely be charged up, as Neymar is expected to be introduced to PSG's faithful fans before the game.

PSG finished second in France Ligue 1 last season, and this single result sent a seismic shock throughout the entire football world, as it ended up resulting in the transfer of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

With Monaco having sold off a number of their best players, there was very likely little chance that Monaco would have been able to repeat as champions. PSG acquiring the rights to Neymar will likely make the run for the title a laugher.
