According to sources contacted by Get French Football News, tensions are rising between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar in the PSG dressing room.
Initially fast friends as both joined the club in 2017, amid bubbling tensions over the summer, Mbappé was keen for the Brazilian to be sold this transfer window, as has reportedly been the aim of the club this summer, with Paris offering the world record transfer to Manchester City.
Neymar, who’s hit good form this season so far, seemingly in reaction to reports the club wanted him out, is aware of reports detailing Mbappé’s desire to see him sold – Mbappé’s contract renewal has reportedly given him increased importance and status within the club and on decision making.
The personal relationship has broken down between the two forwards in the last six months and Mbappé’s camp feel there’s only room for two off Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi on the pitch this season. Mbappé feels like he’s learned a lot from Neymar in the last five years but would now prefer to learn from Messi.
After the game with Montpellier last night, a series of tweets liked by Neymar indicated a deeper problem within the dressing room, as yet another “penaltygate” appears to have reared its head at PSG.
