PSG forward Kylian Mbappe has revealed that the French outfit won’t be the same if Brazilian superstar Neymar leaves the club. The former Santos star has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona as he is unlikely to stay in Paris.
Indeed, in their opening game of the season against Nimes, the fans made it clear that they don’t want the Brazilian at the club anymore with a banner reading, “Neymar, get out.”

Meanwhile, both Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with a move for the Brazilian but Mbappe believes that the team wouldn’t be the same without the former Barcelona man.
When asked whether the club could improve on their showing from last year, Mbappe stated that they are certainly going to try but it also depends on the situation of Neymar.
“It depends, we will try,” he was quoted by Goal. But we will not lie; we must also see what will happen with Neymar. It's not the same team without Neymar as it is with him. But we will try to do it for the fans.”
It would be interesting to see where the Brazil star ends up this summer. The forward has only 20 days left to resolve his immediate future and if current reports are to be believed, then the Catalans are the ones in front of the race to bring back their former superstar.
