Record PSG signing Neymar has issued an ultimatum to club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi instructing him to sell Edison Cavani following a disagreement between the two players on Sunday, Metro reports.

The duo argued briefly over who to take a penalty during PSG's 2-0 victory over Lyon with Cavani refusing to give in to Neymar, and reports suggest the disagreement threatened to escalate into a physical altercation in the dressing room after the match.

There are claims coming from Spain that Neymar feels Cavani as a threat to his promised by Al-Khelaifi status of the club's superstar. The Uruguaian striker has, however, calmed rumours over a  fall-out with his new team-mate.

"These things are created.” Cavani told Gol de Medianoche de Radio Universal. “I don’t know why these stories are created. The truth is that these are normal things: things that happen in football.

“I learned of the story just now talking to my brother, about people saying that Cavani won’t let anyone take penalties and there’s a problem with Neymar.

“He has just arrived and like I said from the off we are keen for him to adapt in the best way possible. I think that’s been proven because you can see he is adapting quickly.”

If the reports are true, this will present a serious problem for PSG as Cavani is currently one of Europe’s most efficient centre forwards, having almost doubled his season goal tally to 35 from 17 following the sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United last year.

Cavani extended his contract to 2020 earlier in the year while his Champions League registration this season may present a serious obstruction to the prospect of a January sale. 

The French champions have so far won all six of their games in Ligue 1 this season as they currently top the table with a three-point lead.



Neymar is getting too big for his own good.
