Inside incredible PSG squad split with just FOUR stars in Kylian Mbappe’s corner as Neymar clique dominate dressing room | The Sun

KYLIAN MBAPPE has just FOUR allies left in the Paris Saint-Germain squad, according to reports.

The French champions are in crisis mode after it emerged this week that Mbappe wants to LEAVE in January.


Just five months after penning a £650,000-a-week contract extension, the 23-year-old has asked out as he feels "betrayed" by the club's hierarchy.

This has reportedly gone down badly with the majority of the squad, who are tired of Mbappe's antics and feel that he has been given everything he could have wanted.

The Frenchman's relationship with Neymar has come under the microscope, with the two having repeatedly clashed.

Mbappe reportedly wanted PSG transfer chief Luis Campos, with whom he is close, to get rid of the Brazilian in the summer.

The two were involved in an on-pitch argument in August, when Neymar demanded to take a penalty during a clash with Montpellier, after Mbappe had missed one earlier in the 5-2 win.

Unfortunately for Mbappe, far more of the squad appear to be on the Brazilian's side.

According to L'Equipe, PSG's sizeable South American and Spanish-speaking contingent are fed up with him, and are backing Neymar in the dispute.

Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos is a key ally of his compatriot, who has been in blistering form this season.

Of the remaining members of the squad, only Presnel Kimpembe, Nordi Mukiele, Hugo Ekitike and Achraf Hakimi are backing Mbappe.

It's claimed that the 2018 World Cup winner was left livid with PSG's summer transfer business.

Campos and Co recruited seven new stars; Nuno Mendes, Vitinha, Ekitike, Mukiele, Renato Sanches, Fabian Ruiz and Carlos Soler.

But it's claimed that Mbappe was desperate for them to sign Robert Lewandowski, Bernardo Silva and Milan Skriniar.

Mbappe is also said to be unhappy with how he has been deployed by boss Christophe Galtier.

After PSG's 0-0 draw with Reims last week, he wrote on Instagram: "Match drawn, back on Tuesday. #icicestparis #pivotgang."

Mbappe's use of #pivotgang caused a stir – suggesting he is unhappy at leading the line on his own, and would rather play alongside another striker.

Ahead of Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Benfica, Campos attempted to calm the situation.

He told French broadcaster Canal Plus: "Mbappe has never told me about his intention to leave in January. We speak with him, Messi, Ney… we're very happy to be here.

"We have to be very clear that this isn't a declaration – it is news that has come out a few hours before a very important match against Benfica."

Mbappe scored from the penalty spot in the draw, although Lionel Messi's stony-faced reaction to the goal was captured by TV cameras.
