Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé will begin another season as teammates, and the two have developed a brother-like relationship during their time with Paris Saint-Germain.

Ahead of the 2020-21 season, Neymar and Mbappé spoke to PSG Le Mag (via Canal Supporters), and the two players answered various questions regarding the upcoming campaign and into the future. 

The first question both answered is which trophy they want to win next, and the two gave different answers. 

“My biggest dream with Paris Saint-Germain is to win the Champions League, and with the Brazilian team, I dream of winning the World Cup. And you Kylian, it’s the Champions League, right? Why not another World Cup? No, the next one is for me.” Neymar said. 

“I’m going to ask Kylian the same question: what’s your biggest dream after winning the World Cup? My biggest dream would be to win the Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain; that would be great. But winning another World Cup would be great too!”

There was also the conversation of the Ballon d’Or and whether or not there’s inner competition between the two to try and win the award. 

“A rivalry between us for the Ballon d’Or? Nooo,” Mbappé said. “Neymar is in the best position to talk about it, he played for a club with Messi, and I think there has never been a problem between them. For big players, it’s easy to play together. The most important thing will always be to help the team and that Paris Saint-Germain win.”

“If one day Paris Saint-Germain wins and Neymar is the player who shines the most and deserves the golden ball, he will win this trophy; it’s that simple, and if it’s me who shines the most, I’ll win it. So! We’re not going to shatter each other over that. I repeat, the most important is Paris Saint-Germain. We wear the same jersey and appreciate it a lot. We are friends. And it’s even easier to play with a friend, especially when he’s a great player.”
