Neymar & Edinson Cavani
It’s been a few days since PSG beat Lyon in Ligue 1, but the feud between Neymar and Edinson Cavani is refusing to go away.
L’Equipe went to print on Tuesday with reports of a locker room bust-up between the two South American strikers after the Lyon game.
The story goes that Thiago Silva stepped in to make sure Neymar and Cavani were both checked.
The flare-up was a result of actions on the pitch. Dani Alves handed a free-kick to Neymar after he prevented Cavani from getting his hands on the ball.
Cavani later shooed away Neymar from a penalty – a penalty that Cavani missed.

Neymar’s Instagram jab
Neymar has since traveled to London where he’s partied with Victoria’s Secret models.
He’s also posted a cryptic message on Instagram which most have interpreted as another attack at Cavani.
Neymar posted a picture of himself on Instagram Stories with the following message in Portuguese: “Nao desejamos mal a quase ninguem”.
This translates to: “We do not wish badly on almost anyone”.
Chelsea & Everton
At the same time, reports are also swirling that Neymar has called for PSG to sell Cavani.
The Brazilian wants Cavani out of Paris in January, or next summer at the latest.
The Daily Mail on Wednesday have waded into the PSG mire, claiming that Chelsea and Everton are keen on picking up Cavani if he becomes available. Readers are told:
European clubs are on alert over the future of Paris St Germain striker Edinson Cavani.
Napoli, Everton and Chelsea are among those taking an interest in developments after the Uruguay international clashed with new teammate Neymar in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Lyon.
Everton would love to land Cavani as they look short of a striker having sold Romelu Lukaku to Man United.
As for Chelsea, Antonio Conte could be interested in signing another forward having only landed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in the summer.
But is the Uruguayan available?
Cavani committed his future to the Ligue 1 side back in July, penning a new three-year contract. That keeps the striker at the Parc des Princes until 2020.
