PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN could reportedly sell Neymar in order to fund a monster new contract for Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe.

But it’s reckoned PSG can only afford to keep one on a monster salary.
Neymar already earns £21.5million a year, having been made the most expensive footballer in history when he joined from Barcelona for nearly £200million in 2017.
Mbappe, who arrived on loan the same summer from Monaco before completing a £156m permanent deal a year later, currently pockets £15.5m.
But he will apparently want a salary putting on par with Neymar in order to commit to the Parc des Princes.
It’s believed PSG cannot keep both players for a combined sum of £43m each season.
And with Mbappe having age on his side, the French giants are ready to sacrifice Neymar in order to keep hold of the World Cup winner.
Real Madrid are also huge fans of the forward, who has already won four league titles with both Monaco and PSG.
The Spaniards dream of pairing him alongside Borussia Dortmund hitman Erling Haaland, who scored four for the Germans yesterday after being revealed as the winner of this year’s Golden Boy award.
It means a door could be open for Neymar to rejoin Barca.
The trickster was strongly linked with his former club after reportedly becoming disillusioned with life in France.
Neymar has also suffered a number of injuries during his stay in the capital, making 92 appearances compared with Mbappe’s 133.
And with all factors taken in, it seems there is one clear winner in PSG’s eyes.
