While the penalty incident was the key moment in their reported fallout, it is now believed the duo's relationship has been unstable since Mbappe signed a new deal with Les Parisiens back in June.

The renewal was reported to have given the France international "more power" at the Parc des Princes as he is now considered the face of the club and its highest-earning player.

When the PSG No. 7 penned his three-year contract extension, it was reported that the 23-year-old would have an influence on PSG's sporting decisions as part of the agreement to remain in Paris.

Now, according to the Daily Mirror, there is an element of rivalry between Mbappe and Messi due to the latter's good relationship with Neymar, with the former Monaco star said to believe the Brazilian is ill-disciplined and damaging to the club and yet still holds an influence over the Argentine.
