Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé are close friends and teammates on the French national team. However, the two will now be playing together at Paris Saint-Germain.
As Neymar Jr. officially exited the capital club on Tuesday, the 24-year-old has a new running mate. With the two set to play against Toulouse FC on Saturday, L’Equipe shared behind the scene details of their relationship now while at PSG.
The French media outlet spoke with Dembélé’s entourage and noted that the former FC Barcelona star likes to joke and brings a lot of joy. As a result, they feel it may be a good thing for Mbappé, and the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner probably needs that around him.
