Neymar throws final dig at Kylian Mbappe and 'likes' post about his PSG departure

Neymar throws final dig at Kylian Mbappe and 'likes' post about his PSG departure

Neymar appeared to have a dig at former Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe.

Neymar has appeared to aim a dig at former Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe by allegedly liking a post calling him out for leaving the club.

Mbappe has informed PSG's top brass that he will intends to move on after seven years when his contract expires in the summer.

The World Cup winner will therefore be a free agent and has already been allowed to speak to foreign clubs from January 1.

Everything point towards a dream transfer to Real Madrid, though Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal have also been linked.

Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 in the same summer as Neymar, who signed in a world-record £198 million switch.

There have always been rumours of tension between the pair and they looked to have a cold exchange when Neymar said his goodbyes at PSG ahead of his move to Al Hilal.

A recent post from Brazilian social media account Jogada Ensaiada criticised Mbappe for his decision to leave, with the caption stating, "No player should be bigger than the institution".

Not for the first time after an August episode, Neymar 'liked' the post and the like is still there two days on.

Neymar refused to answer questions about his relationship with Mbappe in the mixed zone in September 2022.

Though despite rumours of a rift, Mbappe was adamant that their relationship is "based on respect" even with hot and cold moments.

"To talk about Neymar, this is the sixth year, I think we've always had a relationship like this based on respect," he told a press conference.

"But we've always had moments like this where sometimes we've had moments that were a bit colder and moments that were a bit hotter.

"There are times, you'll see, when we're the best of friends and sometimes we don't talk so much, it's the nature of our relationship that's like that.”

According to ESPN, Mbappe received a formal contract offer from Real last month and though negotiations are ongoing, a deal is yet to be signed.
