Edinson Cavani v Neymar: PSG birthday party sets up latest battle ground

Edinson Cavani v Neymar

The bad headlines keep spilling out for PSG.

Monday started with reports out of Spain, via El Pais, that PSG tried to pay off Edinson Cavani after his recent feud with Neymar.

To recap, the problems between PSG’s two South American forwards began in the 2-0 win over Lyon,.

Firstly, Dani Alves stopped Cavani taking a free-kick, before Neymar took control of the set-play.

PSG later won a penalty. Neymar wanted to take it, but Cavani shooed the world’s most expensive player away from the scene. Cavani then saw his spot-kick saved.

According to Monday’s updates in El Pais, Cavani has turned down a €1 million bonus to allow Neymar to take PSG’s penalties.

Thiago Silva’s birthday party

This week PSG return to Champions League action with a huge match ahead.

On Tuesday night Bayern Munich arrive in the French capital.

Will Cavani and Neymar be on the same page for the match against the Bundesliga champions?

Many are doubting that following social media updates from Thiago Silva’s 33rd birthday party on Sunday.

Pictures from the event appeared on social media, and one thing was glaringly obvious.

There was no sign of Cavani in the group photos. Rather, Cavani uploaded a photo on social media on Sunday showing him surrounded by horses.

It seemed clear Cavani was separated from the rest of the PSG group.
