The two forwards reportedly have the same issue at PSG, with the French club seemingly not prepared to release them for the 2020 Olympic Games.

According to L'Equipe, Les Parisiens have sent a letter to the French Football Federation stating their opposition to Mbappe being called up for the Olympics, while Neymar is expected to get similar treatment.

Both players, though, are keen to take part in the tournament in Japan, where they could be drawn against South Africa's U23 national team.

The Olympics is not considered an official FIFA tournament, which allows clubs to oppose the release of their players.

The main issue stems from the fact that both Mbappe and Neymar seemingly want to play in two international tournaments in the off-season after the 2019/20 club campaign ends.

In Mbappe's case, that would be the 2020 UEFA European Championship plus the Olympics, while Neymar wants to take part in the 2020 Copa America as well as the tournament in Tokyo.

This is the latest in what is becoming an increasingly strained relationship between Mbappe and PSG, with some of the club's fans getting more and more frustrated with the 21-year-old's antics of late.
