According to some rumors, the 23-year-old has requested the transfer of his teammate from the management. But ultimately, this would not be the case according to Jérôme Rothen. The problem between the two players would come from elsewhere.

During the meeting, Kylian Mbappe showed several signs of annoyance towards his teammates, especially with Neymar. The 23-year-old striker drew attention to himself when he claimed the Brazilian’s second penalty. After the meeting, it was revealed that relations would have been strained between Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

But finally, Kylian Mbappe would never have made such a request to the PSG.
