PSG prepared to sell Neymar over Mbappe tension - Newcastle keen

PSG are prepared to sell superstar Neymar this summer.

L'Equipe says his relationship with star man Kylian Mbappe - who has just signed a £650,000-a-week, three-year deal - has deteriorated to the point the club and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi are fine with letting him go.

However, European giants Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have no interest in signing the 30-year-old, and Saudi Arabia-funded Newcastle could afford him but Neymar would not want a move there.

When Neymar joined the club from Barcelona, he was one of the biggest names in the sport and Al-Khelaifi said he had 'the best player in the world' at the Parc des Princes.

That may still be true, but Neymar has since been eclipsed by Mbappe, who has outscored him for the last four seasons, and the 22-year-old forward's bumper new deal cements his position as No 1 at PSG.

Despite having extended his contract until the summer of 2025 - with the option of an extra season - just over a year ago, his status has reportedly fallen rapidly.
