PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe ‘fall out’ after Brazil star criticised some players

The future of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar has been placed under intensifying scrutiny amid reports the duo have fallen out after losing the French Cup final.

Neymar’s criticism of the ‘young people’ in PSG’s squad upset the 20-year-old Mbappe, who felt it referred to him. Mbappe had just been sent off in the French Cup final defeat on penalties by Rennes.

Real Madrid are reportedly keeping a close eye on how things unfold and are prepared to make a move for whichever of the two strikers decides they must leave the Parc des Princes.

Mbappe placed his own PSG future in doubt on Sunday when he collected the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award. 

Mbappe said: ‘This is a very important moment for me, I am arriving at maybe the first or second turning point in my career. 

‘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.’

The pair both moved to PSG in the summer of 2017 with Neymar costing £198m and Mbappe eventually costing £166m after an initial season-long loan.
