- PSG record signing Neymar has blocked striker Cavani from his official PSG fan club as feud intensifies
- The Brazilian also reportedly blocked the Uruguay attacker on social media platform Instagram
- Both players are expected to be in action for the Parisian club when they face Bayern Munich in Wednesday, September 27, Champions League matchday 2
The feud between Paris Saint-Germain new signing Neymar with teammate Edinson Cavani took another turn today, September 26, after the Brazilian skipper banned his teammate from Paris Saint-Germain's official Neymar fan club.
Tension between the two teammates have been on the increase over the last week after an on-field dispute, which saw them argue over the right to take a penalty during their side's 2-0 victory over Lyon on September 17.
Cavani eventually overruled both Neymar and his compatriot Dani Alves, before missing the penalty. At the final whistle he left the pitch immediately.
Following the disagreement, reports emerged that Neymar had unfollowed Cavani on Instagram and also demanded the Parisian club sell the former Napoli striker in the next transfer window.
Despite hopes of reconciliation between the two, many at the Parc des Princes now fear the situation is irreconcilable after the Uruguayan was banned from the Ligue 1 team's official Neymar fan club set up by Neymar after signing with PSG this summer.
"When I join a team I expect loyalty from my teammates. I give it to them and I expect the same in return. By not allowing me to take penalties that he would usually take, Edinson has totally betrayed my trust. As such, his name has been taken off the register of the PSG chapter of the Neymar fan club," read a statement released by the ex-Barcelona man's PR team today referring to the private group which meets at Neymar's home weekly to discuss their favourite things about the Brazilian and watch highlights of his best goals and tricks.

"We asked Cavani to apologise, but he refused to do so. As a result of his treacherous behaviour, he will no longer be invited to Neymar Appreciation Fridays. That also means that there will be no more Neymar badges, Neymar t-shirts, Neymar posters or Neymar fidget spinners arriving at his home every week. He took a risk and will, unfortunately, serve the harshest punishment imaginable."
Sources close to Neymar later revealed that while he would be more than happy to see Cavani leave, he might be willing to forgive him providing he receives reassurances that his teammate will never attempt a shot ever again.
Both Cavani and Neymar are expected in PSG’s starting lineup as they face Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in Wednesday, September 27, Champions League matchday 2 clash at the Parc des Princes.
