Edinson Cavani asked Neymar if he thought he was Lionel Messi when he walked into the PSG dressing room for the first time, according to a new report.
The Uruguayan and £198million world record signing clearly don’t see eye-to-eye after their recent rift over penalty and free-kick taking responsibilities unfolded, but it seems their first exchange wasn’t much better either.
According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, Cavani made a shocking first impression on his new team-mate following his stunning move from Barcelona.
‘And who is this? Do you think you’re (Lionel) Messi?’, the striker reportedly asked when Neymar first entered the dressing room.
Whether Cavani was joking or was intending to insult the new arrival remains unclear, but while Neymar was seemingly attempting a leap of faith out of the shadow of his former Barcelona team-mate, he probably didn’t take it too well.
The alleged comment has only added more fuel to the fire, with PSG continuing to negotiate a truce between the two forwards.
