Paris Saint-Germain have one of the best strike forces in Europe with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, but reports in France claim that they may sell one of their superstars in order to avoid being hit with a sanction.
Financial Fair Play has been a concern in Paris ever since the club brought in the Brazil and France forwards in the summer of 2017.
According to L’Equipe, the Ligue 1 champions will consider letting one of the two move on at the end of the current season and they also add that Mbappe could fetch a higher transfer fee.
Manchester United, though, are one of the clubs said to be interested and they’d be keener to sign Neymar.
However, all of this depends on what UEFA says with respect to the club’s finances in a few weeks.
The news hasn’t gone down well in the offices of the Parc des Princes and they shared a statement late on Friday night in response to the claims.
“L’Equipe, a media of disinformation,” was the title of the angry statement.
“As well as denying in the strongest way possible these totally false claims that are also ridiculous and that have the sole aim of creating great tension between the club and this newspaper, PSG also ask once more about the intellectual honesty of L’Equipe and the hidden motives of their editorial line with respect to PSG,” the statement started.
“There are many examples of an unfair treatment where the objective is to spread a harmful atmosphere.
“Faced with this orchestrated disinformation from L’Equipe and their tireless attempt to undermine their image, PSG – the most popular and successful club in France – reaffirm a desire to advance and to dialogue only with partners of good faith.”
