L'Equipe report further reports that Neymar’s relationship with Mbappe has severely deteriorated in recent months.
It states that Mbappe was very open to PSG selling Neymar in the summer, as new football advisor Luis Campos embarked on a mission to reshape the team.
At the time, Neymar was linked with moves to Chelsea and a potential return to Barcelona, who were still getting their finances together.
Neymar ended up staying at PSG, and after failing to move away from the club, the Brazilian, who has been with the Paris club since 2017, was left convinced that Mbappe was the driving force behind PSG chiefs’ willingness to do away with him.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has been acting as mediator between the two, despite the calm and introverted demeanor of the Argentine.
Neither Neymar nor Mbappe has commented on their alleged frosty relationship to the public, although the fact that they are at loggerheads has played out severally for the public to see.
