Inside PSG Dressing Room Split As Just Four Players Support Kylian Mbappe

  • Kylian Mbappe is believed to be losing the backing of his teammates at Paris Saint-Germain
  • The Frenchman has been in the news for his reported desire to bring his stint with PSG to a premature end
  • The 23-year-old’s relationship with Brazilian playmaker Neymar Junior has also deteriorated in recent months

France international Kylian Mbappe reportedly has just four allies left in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room.

Mbappé has been the centre of intense speculation this week, suggesting the 23-year-old is angling for a move away from the French capital.

The former AS Monaco forward is reportedly unhappy and feels betrayed by the top hierarchy of the club, due to alleged unfulfilled promises made to him prior to signing a lucrative three-year contract extension in the summer.

The duo were said to have ego issues that spilt over to the dressing room. Mbappe had reportedly advocated for Neymar to be sold by the club. Unfortunately for the Frenchman, it now seems the PSG squad appear to be on the Brazilian's side.

Per L'Equipe, PSG's sizeable South American and Spanish-speaking contingent are fed up with him and are backing Neymar in the dispute.

Mbappe's intended exit has gone down badly with the majority of the squad, who are tired of his antics and feel that he has been given everything he could have wanted.

Only his compatriots, Presnel Kimpembe, Nordi Mukiele and Hugo Ekitike, along with Moroccan defender Achraf Hakimi, are backing the 2018 World Cup winner.

PSG will be hoping that Mbappe and Neymar put their differences aside and - together with Lionel Messi - lead them to the elusive Champions League title.

Neymar was 'shocked' by Mbappe

Sports Brief had earlier reported that there is more trouble brewing at Paris Saint-Germain, as superstar forward Kylian Mbappe reportedly does not want his teammate Neymar in the side ‘at all’.

Neymar is said to have been left 'astonished by the influence' of Mbappe at the club.

PSG recently made their intentions of keeping Mbappe clear, by offering him a mega money new contract to fend off interest from Real Madrid.

With the 23-year-old’s initial contract running out and Real Madrid closing in on a deal, Mbappe stunned everyone by making a U-turn on joining Los Blancos.
