After a contentious fallout behind the scenes, PSG may be about to lose Lionel Messi and Neymar this summer. After Monaco defeated him 3-1 on Saturday, Neymar allegedly got into an altercation in the locker room where he criticised teammates Vitinha and Hugo Ekitike.
Presnel Kimpembe claimed he was ‘not made aware’ of Kylian Mbappe taking over as PSG’s vice-captain at the start of the season just a few weeks prior. Following their recent slump in form, Mbappe then posted on social media calling for “unity,” but it is obvious that there are serious issues within the French team’s locker room.
PSG Fallout: Neymar vs Mbappe?
Neymar and Mbappe, however, are still at odds, and as a result, both Messi and the Brazilian are looking to leave Parc des Princes.
According to the report, manager Christophe Galtier called a first-team meeting where Mbappe and Neymar were reprimanded after being forced to separate them by former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos. On the other hand, Messi is nearing the end of his two-year deal with PSG and can now negotiate a free transfer to another team at the end of the current campaign. The Argentine international is rumoured to be considering a move to the MLS, with Inter Miami one of the front-runners to sign the legend.

If he is unable to reach a new contract with PSG, a sensational return to Barcelona, where his former teammate Xavi is in charge, is also not completely out of the question. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.
PSG face major setback after dressing room clash
As the French powerhouses prepare for their pivotal Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, the timing of this could not be worse.
In their own country, PSG have increased their own pressure after Marseille reduced the distance between them and the league leaders to just five points on Saturday. There is now a lot of pressure on PSG to succeed in the Champions League after they lost to Marseille last week and exited the Coupe de France.
Mbappe’s future in the French capital is in doubt as well, joining Messi and Neymar, after he recently refused to rule out a summer transfer. Read More: PSG manager confident that Lionel Messi can face Bayern despite injury
Will PSG lose their superstars?
If the 24-year-old superstar decides to leave the Parc des Princes, a move to the Premier League isn’t out of the question because he has previously been linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea.
Considering that Mbappe’s current contract is set to expire in 2025, it can be said that the English clubs would probably have to pay an enormous transfer fee. At the end of the current campaign, Neymar and Messi appear more likely to depart, which could cause major divisions within the PSG squad.
