Neymar and Mbappe grow further apart as Messi watches on

PSG is not a garden of roses by any means. There seems to be no chemistry between Kylian Mbappe and his fellow stars, and sporting director Luis Campos is well aware of it.

Neymar and Lionel Messi forged their relationship at Barcelona and, with the arrival of the Argentine at the Parc des Princes, that friendship has been rekindled.

Neymar gives frosty response when questioned about his relationship with Neymar

They are friends and now both have the World Cup coming up, aware they are facing their last great opportunity to conquer something that international football has denied them so far.

In Qatar, the story will be different, but they know that until then they need the complicity of their teammates and one of them is Mbappe.

There was supposedly a recent serious confrontation in the dressing room between the Frenchman and the Brazilian, but now all PSG's World Cup players are looking to keep the peace for the next weeks, aware that the best way to arrive in Qatar is having been in good form at a successful team with a happy dressing room.

Mbappe wants to be PSG's leader

Mbappe has shown ample evidence of seeking a leadership role that, for the moment, he has not earned.

With his renewal he was guaranteed to be the best paid in the world, as has been confirmed this week by Forbes magazine, but he would have liked to find a quite different environment.

Neymar has resisted and has even become stronger because of his good play and because his partner Messi is happy by his side.

The dressing room is said to be split and Sergio Ramos is much closer to Mbappe than to the part led by Messi and Neymar, with Marco Verrati as his main ally.
