PSG News: The drama between two Paris Saint-Germain stars, Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe have been one of the hottest talks in recent days.
Neymar joined PSG in 2017 from Barcelona for a mammoth transfer fee of €222 million. Meanwhile, Mbappe joined PSG the following year.
Since then, the duo of Neymar and Mbappe has been often termed as one of the best of all time.

PSG News: Neymar feels Mbappe is responsible for this drama
After Mbappe’s contract renewal, the French forward reportedly wanted Neymar out of the club due to the Brazilian’s rising influence in the dressing room.
It became publically visible when Neymar and Mbappe had a clear dispute over a penalty in their Ligue 1 tie against Montpellier.
PSG soon had a dressing room meeting to solve the issues but it has been understood that nothing much has changed.
There is still a clear clash between the two stars of PSG. it became further clear in their last UEFA Champions League match against Juventus when Mbappe decided to shoot rather than feed up Neymar who was free for a tap in.
However, it’s not all over for the PSG duo. According to Goal, Neymar still blames Mbappe for this drama but doesn’t want to hamper the unity of the PSG dressing room. In the last few years, Neymar Mbappe has won everything in France together yet failed in the final stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Many pundits noted this feud even before the start of the season as a cause of PSG’s continuous failures in UCL.
PSG then brought in another superstar in Lionel Messi but again failed to win the elusive UCL.
This season all three of them got a great start. Neymar have already scored eight goals and provided six assists in the Ligue 1. Mbappe have netted seven goals and Lionel Messi have scored thrice and provided seven assists.
With the three of them scoring a bundle of goals, PSG have won all of their Ligue 1 outings bar one. They are right now at the top of the league table. PSG will face Maccabi Haifa in their next outing.
