Kylian Mbappe finished the season off with a bang when he publicly asked for more responsibilities, which might be what prompt's the exit of PSG's other star power, Neymar, who's bad boy reputation, drop in form and frequent injuries are also behind the push for his move. However, now in the midst of speculations about his future and even a possible return to Barcelona, the Frenchman has asked for Neymar to stay beside him in the Parc des Princes.

I would like to thank the players, the coach, the club again. It's important for me because I come to a first or a second turning point in my career. I discovered a lot of things here. I feel it's time to have more responsibility. I hope it may be Paris Saint-Germain, it will be with great pleasure, or it may be elsewhere for a new project." So were the words of the PSG youngster at the UNFP (National Union of Professional Footballers) award ceremony which sent the press and footballing world into a frenzy. 

The Parc des Princes board took no time to react after the surprising comments by Mbappe, as they published a press release a few hours later reinstating the commitment between PSG and Mbappe: "for two years, a strong bond has been formed between PSG and Kylian Mbappe; and this story will continue next season". 

"[This comes] with a shared ambition to make European football history in the year of the club's 50th anniversary. A highly-anticipated moment in which we can all come together to write a new, great page in the club's history where each individual must play a role geared towards the collective [goals]."

Weeks later, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, in an interview for 'France Football', put Neymar's father on firm ground and put him on the market: "I talked to his father and told him what I expect from PSG players and, in that sense, Ney and the others must adhere. If he's not committed, you can be sure that PSG will make other players' dreams come true."

"There are of course contracts to respect, but the priority now is a complete commitment to our project… Nobody forced him to sign here. Nobody pushed him to. He came with a full understanding of the cause to sign up to a project."

However, in the midst of negotiations between FC Barcelona and PSG for Neymar's return, Kylian Mbappé, according to the newspaper 'Marca', has shared with the club that he would like for the Brazilian to continue playing in the Parc of Princes, understanding that his departure would weaken a project built on the basis of a checkbook in order to conquer the Champions League.

Despite publicly demanding to be the leader of the PSG both in sports and to the press, the source maintains that the Frenchman has asked the club no to transfer Neymar and, in addition, to look for a world-class number '9'.
