Paris Saint Germain duo, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have reportedly fallen out following a defeat in the French Cup final.
Brazil star, Neymar allegedly questioned the attitude of the younger people at the club and 20-yr-old Kylian Mbappe thinks the world’s most expensive player was referring to him in his criticism of young players.
PSG had just lost to Rennes after a penalty shoot-out with Mbappe receiving a late bath for a horror tackle on Damien Da Silva during extra time.
Real Madrid are keeping tabs on the happenings at the Parc des Princes with the Spanish giants considering a double swoop for both players.
Both Neymar and Mbappe moved to the French capital in 2017 for transfer records of £198million and £166million respectively, although the latter has hinted at a move away from the Ligue 1 during a speech he made on receiving the Ligue 1 Player of the Year Award.
“This is a very important moment for me, I am arriving at maybe the first or second turning point in my career,” said the 20-yr-old.
“I have learned so much here, and I feel it’s maybe the time to have more responsibility. Maybe at PSG, that would give me great pleasure, or maybe elsewhere for a new project.”
Thomas Tuchel has offered no guarantees that any of the players will remain at PSG come next season.
“As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive,” Tuchel said in a press conference.
“Many clubs want to transfer many players and the market is crazy, but if you ask me, the coach, yes, I want them here next season. But if they are not, we will find solutions.
“Mbappe has goals, he is very intelligent and maybe he thought it was time to say it, but he is invited, like all PSG players, to assume responsibilities.
“It is not necessary to make a speech to say that. He’s a special guy, he wants to score, score and score, win all the possible titles. We have to accept it, I’m not angry.”
