Trouble seems to be brewing in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room, with Neymar reportedly confused by Kylian Mbappe’s behaviour.
According to French publication L'Equipe, the Brazilian forward does not understand why his 22-year-old striker partner Mbappe wants to leave the club.
It was widely reported in August that Real Madrid were desperate to sign the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, who was equally as interested in joining the Spanish giants.
Neymar, as per the report, is confused as to why the France international desires a move away from the Ligue 1 leaders, especially after the arrival of Lionel Messi last month.
The 29-year-old perhaps feels it would not make sense for his teammate to leave the club at this point given the strength of the squad and their chances of winning major silverware this season.
On the weekend, footage of Mbappe letting out his frustrations on PSG’s bench emerged online after he was taken off in their 2-0 win over Montpellier.
The young forward appeared to be furious with Neymar’s unwillingness to pass to him at one moment of the game.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will take on Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, with three points being important to the French giants after they drew against Club Brugge in Group A last week.
Below are some high-profile examples of teammates who fell out:
