PSG's draw with Montpellier can't be blamed on Neymar's absence


Paris Saint-Germain reportedly deny claims that Edinson Cavani was offered a bonus to give penalty duties to Neymar.

"I don't look at what the market is today because that was our mission - to get football to another level - to open doors for the next generation". To add to it, the fans of the club are now anxious more than ever, as a latest Instagram post by Kylian Mbappe has revealed something they would not like to see.

"That is why for other teams we are now the sporting enemies and people talk more about us".

The president of Spain's La Liga, Javier Tebas, recently accused PSG of "laughing" at UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules with their signings of Neymar and Mbappe, who had also been a target for Real Madrid.

"We have more sporting enemies. During the transfer window, lots of players want to leave, but I don't know if they really want to leave their club or just improve their contracts", Ancelotti told Le Figaro.

With the arrival of the world's most expensive player Neymar as well as potentially the second-most expensive player in Kylian Mbappe, manager Unai Emery is finding himself with an epic challenge on his hands in keeping his current squad happy with enough minutes and distributing the play. However, with the large sums of money Madrid and Chelsea can throw around, it's unlikely we'll see the Uruguayan donning that shade of blue again.

"He is an important player", he said of the Germany global playmaker. "He enjoyed six excellent months last season". He began late on his return from the Confederations Cup.

"We need to send out a signal to ourselves", said PSG midfielder Marco Verratti on Tuesday when asked of the significance of the game, the first meeting of the sides in 17 years.

Bayern have suffered from a slight blip in form in recent weeks, with their usual domination giving way to one draw and one defeat in their last four league games, the loss coming away to Julian Nagelsmann's Hoffenheim at the start of September.
