Neymar v Edinson Cavani
Undoubtedly one of the big talking points of the week in world football has been the on-pitch arguments between Neymar and Edinson Cavani.
There were always likely to be egos hurt at PSG once Neymar arrived on a world record transfer fee, but it was not expected to be the Uruguayan striker.
After all, Cavani should benefit from Neymar’s service and the front three of the Brazilian, former Napoli striker and Kylian Mbappe looks seriously brilliant.
Two on-pitch arguments
On Sunday night the whole world was made fully aware that the Neymar-Edinson Cavani relationship is far from smooth.
In a 2-0 win over Lyon, Neymar and Cavani argued over a penalty, which was eventually missed by the Uruguayan.
And, Dani Alves had to “steal” the ball from Cavani to ensure his great mate Neymar could take a free-kick from the edge of the box.
Neymar sends a message to Cavani
Since the Lyon game, there have been a number of developments in this saga and you have to worry about Cavani’s future at PSG.

Neymar is surrounded by the likes of Alves, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Lucas Moura. No wonder Cavani feels threatened…

This translates to: “We do not wish badly on almost anyone”.
