Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly looking to release their Barcelona star Neymar and it is believed that is based on the demands of the new sporting director of the club Kylian Mbappe. Kylian Mbappe will remain at Paris St-Germain next season after he signed a three-year deal with the French Ligue 1 champions that will see him remain at the Parc des Princes until 2025.

According to respected Spanish journalist, Sergio Santos, the World Cup winner has instructed the Ligue 1 champions Paris St-Germain to sell his Brazilian teammate and sign French forward Ousmane Dembele. Mbappe and Neymar have flourished together with the Parisians, playing 112 games and combining for 47 goals together.
However, the duo seems to have a mixed relationship. Mbappe even admitted to calling Neymar a “bum” back in September, following the Brazilian’s refusal to pass to him. Now, it looks like an exit could be looming for the former Santos and Barcelona star Neymar, who joined Paris St-Germain for a record deal of €222 million from Barcelona back in 2017.
Meanwhile, a move to sign Dembele could potentially be easy to accomplish, with the former Dortmund star set to leave Barcelona as a free agent this summer
