Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe admitted that the French side won’t be the same should Neymar leave the club this summer.
The record signing was not named in the matchday squad for the comfortable 3-0 win over Nimes at the Parc des Princes with Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria all on the scoresheet.
But Neymar, said to be unsettled in France and who has been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid, was also the focus of attention with a number of fans holding a banner telling him to “get lost” and chanting about the 27-year-old.
Despite heavy speculation over Neymar’s exit, Mbappe is hoping that the Brazilian stays at the club.
“It’s not the same team without Neymar as it is with him. But we will try to do it for the fans,” he told Canal+.
“But we will not lie. We must also see what will happen with Neymar.”
