Football Express

Paris Saint-Germain has been very active in the market this summer. One of the biggest news of this transfer window was Kylian Mbappe’s contract renewal. The French superstar decided to snub Real Madrid in favor of staying in the French capital.

However, things are not smooth in Paris at all. Christophe Galtier has joined as the new manager along with Luis Campos who has replaced Leonardo. Many reputed journalists have reported these appointments as a result of negotiations with Kylian Mbappe. It has been reported that the French international has been given the power to participate in key sporting decisions of the club.

Kylian Mbappe has asked the club to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino and Leonardo as part of his contract negotiations. The club smoothly appointed Galtier and Campos in their respective roles and all things seemed well on track. However, things have deteriorated as it is now reported Kylian Mbappe has asked the club to sell Neymar this summer.

The French superstar believes that the attitude and partying lifestyle of Neymar is not suited to the ambitions of the club. Neymar has since found out about the request made by Kylian Mbappe and the relationship between the players has worsened.

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar disagree over penalty taker

Neymar is the preferred penalty taker for Paris Saint-Germain ever since the departure of Edinson Cavani. The Brazilian had a disagreement with the striker over the penalty taker during Unai Emery’s reign. However, the situation has changed now. Kylian Mbappe took the first penalty for the French champions against Montpellier. Even though the forward missed his penalty, he believed he will take the penalty that was awarded later in the match.

However, to his surprise, Neymar took the ball and dispatched the penalty himself. This has sparked controversy as the relationship between the forwards has come to an all-time low. The French international wants Neymar out of the club and wishes to play with Lionel Messi in the near future.

The Brazilian has been the most prized asset of the French champions for almost five years. However, that has changed this summer as Kylian Mbappe has become the most important player for the club undoubtedly. The relationship is strained to a point where any reconciliation seems very difficult. Manager, Christophe Galtier has a real problem at his peril even before the club has started to play in their main target competition, UEFA Champions League!
