What Daily Mail Claims

Kylian Mbappe’s exclusion came as a surprise, especially given their stint together at PSG. However, recent social media activity suggests tensions between the two, with Neymar’s public criticism of Mbappe’s conduct in February 2024, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Mbappe’s impending departure from PSG has been widely speculated, with Real Madrid emerging as the frontrunners for his signature. Ronaldo Nazario weighed in on the potential transfer, expressing optimism about Mbappe’s prospects with the Spanish giants.

“We have to wait until it’s official before talking about it in detail, but everyone is excited about Kylian Mbappe in Madrid. He is an amazing player. He is going to be one of the best players in this moment. I think it’s a very good choice for him if he joins Madrid. I think he will finally get the Ballon d’Or if he joins Real,”

Ronaldo Nazario remarked in an interview with the Daily Mail via Daily Post.

As speculation mounts regarding Mbappe’s future, Neymar’s dream team selection provides insight into his preferences, rooted in past collaborations and personal relationships on and off the field.
