Reports: Neymar Still Angry With Edinson Cavani Over Penalty Row
It is believed that Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is still fuming with Edinson Cavani following his previous disagreement with the 30-year-old.
In a bid to keep Neymar happy, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is said to have offered Cavani a €1 million (R15 million) goalscoring bonus, which he would earn if finishes at the club’s leading scorer, but the Uruguayan would also have to allow Neymar to take penalties as part of the deal – an offer that El Pais claims the forward has rejected.
It is now believed that Neymar has been told that his teammate refuses to budge, which was reportedly angered the Brazilian further.
The report states that the 25-year-old wants to take penalties and free-kicks whenever he wishes to, which might not be the case with Cavani in the side.
The Uruguayan has been standing over dead balls since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the club last year, which helped him score 49 goals in 50 matches last season.
