Paris Saint-Germain made a bold move in 2017 when they brought Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé. The capital club wanted to build around these two superstar players to win the UEFA Champions League.
While there were high moments, such as advancing to the 2020 Champions League final, the duo’s time together ended this summer. PSG sold Neymar for a reported €90 million to Al-Hilal as the 31-year-old leaves Europe.
If anyone wants to know that these two only had a business relationship, they can check their Instagram accounts. People noticed that Neymar and Mbappé don’t follow each other on the social media platform.

Don’t expect these two to be friends; maybe whatever fractured their friendship (if there was any) can heal with time. It will be interesting to see how these two interact in person, as when Neymar left, there was an awkward-looking goodbye between the two players.
Can they be friends again in the future? Or will this always be a business and nothing more?
