Neymar and Mbappe PSG penalty dispute ends, Brazil stars may leave before September 1

Asked whether Neymar could move on before the September 1 deadline, Gaultier indicated that this is highly unlikely, but not entirely out of the question, the DPA reports.

A brawl between Mbappe and Neymar became apparent during PSG’s 5-2 Ligue 1 win over Montpellier last Saturday, with the pair looking to disagree over penalty duties.

Mbappe missed the opening spot-kick but thought PSG would have a chance to make amends when a second penalty was awarded, only for Neymar to take responsibility and make no mistake. It was clear that Neymar thought he was next in line, but Mbappe must have thought the duty remained his.

This has suggested a rift between the star pair could prove disruptive in the dressing room, with Mbappe looking in the best position to win any such tug-of-war after signing a bumper three-year contract in May .

He later scored in the Montpellier game, but refused to celebrate, much to the dismay of several teammates.

Gaultier said the matter was suppressed during training this week, adding: “There’s no malaise. We’re making plans, saying what we have to say to each other. I can confirm that the whole thing.” Honestly it’s been a good week with everyone.Working hard to prepare well for the match against Lillee.

“I’ve been involved in every session this week and from the next day onwards any events in the Montpellier game were over.”

PSG travel to face Lille on Sunday as Gaultier returns to the club which has led him to win the 2020-21 Ligue 1 title.
