Neymar has ‘demanded Paris Saint-Germain sell Edinson Cavani’ after the two South American stars clashed over taking a penalty.

The Brazilian and the Uruguayan had to be separated in the dressing room following Sunday’s heated victory over Lyon.

And now, according to Spanish outlet Sport. the world’s most expensive player has told chairman Nasser Al-Khalifi that the relationship is “broken” and playing together is “totally impossible”.

It is believed Neymar wants top-scorer Cavani offloaded in January.

The flashpoint came in the 79th minute, when Kylian Mbappe won a penalty. Neymar wanted to have the kick instead of regular-taker Cavani.

The Uruguayan, who had earlier been involved in a squabble with Dani Alves over taking a free-kick before the Brazilian handed the ball to Neymar, stuck to his guns, attempted the spot-kick — and saw it saved.

The clash of egos has overshadowed PSG winning their first eight games of the season in all competitions with the two most expensive players in the world.

Cavani, who scored 49 goals last season, only touched the ball 20 times against Lyon — and did not pass to Neymar once.

The former Barcelona star only passed it twice to Cavani, but has struck up a telepathic understanding with Mbappe.

Cavani is reported to have a €1m bonus in his new contract if he finishes top scorer in Ligue 1 this season.
