Sporting rivals but friends, that’s what Kylian Mbappé and Neymar claimed to be on the PSG side. A facade alliance which has not stood the test of time and especially the departure of the Brazilian this summer.
This summer, the fragile MNM was shattered at PSG and ultimately no one is complaining, the three players concerned like the Parisian club. Lionel Messi left Paris in bitterness, Neymar followed suit, not without a touch of disappointment. The Brazilian was somewhat pushed out, having suffered too many injuries in recent seasons. Above all, Kylian Mbappé has been calling for his departure internally for several years. A shame when we know that the two players, who arrived together in 2017, liked to communicate about their friendship on and off the field. No one was fooled anymore regarding this superficial complicity between Mbappé and Neymar.
Mbappé and Neymar cut ties on Instagram
Since his departure, the Brazilian especially liked to send more or less discreet barbs to his former French teammate. He reposted critical messages towards the Frenchman as during his last months at PSG. The break seemed complete between the two players without any concrete manifestation being felt. It is now done since the two players have separated…on social networks.

As noted by several Parisian supporter accounts, including Mega PSG in particular, the two players stopped following each other on Instagram for a few days. A logical separation after Neymar’s transfer to Al Hilal. There was no longer any question for Kylian Mbappé and the Brazilian of pretending to get along. The sacred union of PSG is well and truly over, between two players who are too different from each other and above all too rivals on an individual level. A big change compared to their joint arrival in Paris, where they no longer left each other’s side and where all of France feared seeing Mbappé “Neymarized”.
