Neymar hints at tension as he sighs and refuses to answer question on relationship with fellow PSG star Kylian Mbappe | The Sun
NEYMAR has fuelled speculation of a rift with Kylian Mbappe after refusing to speak about his relationship with his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate.
The pair are rumoured to have a frosty relationship at Parc des Princes, despite scoring 21 goals between them this season for Les Parisiens.
It was claimed in July how Mbappe was keen for the former Barcelona star to be sold this summer due to his “indiscipline”.
And it was then reported how PSG had put Neymar up for sale after Mbappe committed his long-term future to the club.
Both men were hauled in for showdown talks by PSG last month following their penalty drama where they were involved in a spat over who should take the spot-kick against Montpellier.
Following the match, Neymar liked many tweets slamming PSG's decision to have the ex-Monaco ace taking penalties ahead of him.

There was more on-field drama earlier this month when Neymar fumed at Mbappe after the Frenchman failed to square the ball for him which would have completed his hat-trick.
Mbappe opened up on his friendship with Neymar at the start of September after admitting he has "cold moments" with the ex-Santos star.
Neymar was asked about his relationship with the 2018 World Cup winner after he helped Brazil beat Ghana 3-0 on Friday night.
When pressed on Mbappe, Neymar said: "I don't understand."

He then added: "With Kylian?"
A brief sigh followed, where he then remarked: "I don't."
Neymar then chose to walk away from the interview as he refused to speak more about his team-mate.
His comments come just a day after Mbappe revealed he enjoys more freedom while on international duty for Les Blues than he does alongside Neymar and Lionel Messi.
He said: "I play differently. I am asked other things here in relation to my club. I have a lot more freedom here.
"The coach knows that there is a number nine like Olivier [Giroud] who occupies the defences and I can walk around and go into space.
"In Paris, it's different, there isn't that. I am asked to do the pivot, it is different."
