Paris Saint-Germain have started making fresh moves to sell Neymar which have been revealed to be part of Kylian Mbappe’s demands in his new renewal clause.

Mbappe will remain at PSG 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 apparently instructed PSG 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 seem 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 (via Mirror).

Now, it looks like an exit could be looming for Neymar, who joined PSG for a record €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.

Paris Saint-Germain announced on Saturday that Kylian Mbappe has signed a new three-year deal at Parc des Princes.

The deal brings an end to a year-long saga in which Real Madrid heavily pursued the forward’s signature, with PSG turning down a late nine-figure bid for Mbappe last summer.

It was expected that the World Cup winner would bring a curtain down on his career in Paris and make a move to the Spanish capital after he agreed personal terms, but instead chose to pen a fresh contract at PSG.

La Liga released a statement confirming that they plan on reporting the Ligue 1 champions to a number authorities – including the European Union – while Mbappe’s would-be Real Madrid teammates haven’t taken kindly to the news, either.

France strike partner Karim Benzema was particularly unimpressed, uploading a picture of Tupac Shakur shaking hands with actor Stephen Baldwin – who allegedly betrayed the legendary rapper – to his Instagram story.

Benzema had posted a picture of his bandaged hand pointing at a shining Real Madrid logo on his story earlier in the day, too. It’ll be interesting to see how the two interact when they meet up on international duty in a couple of weeks.
