Thomas Tuchel fears Kylian Mbappe and Neymar could leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer
Arguably one of the most entertaining duos in the world of football, the Frenchman and the Brazilian have lead PSG to back-to-back Ligue 1 titles during their two-year spell in the French capital.
However, the Parisians struggling in the Champions League seems to be unacceptable to them, as both could be on their way out of Parc des Princes in the next transfer session.
Well aware of the fact, his talismans could change accommodation ahead of the new season, Thomas Tuchel has admitted he would like to see them stay in Paris although he has refused to rule out their departure.
“As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive,” the German manager said.

“Many clubs want to transfer many players and the market is crazy, but if you ask me, the coach, yes, I want them here next season. But if they are not, we will find solutions.”
PSG’s problems with the Financial Fair Play may force the club to renounce one of their two main stars, and they don’t lack for suitors.
Neymar and Mbappe have already ended up in Real Madrid’s crosshairs, as Los Blancos intend to battle their way back to the top of La Liga and Europe following a disastrous season.
The French heavyweights splashed out approximately €400 million to secure the services of their star forwards back in 2017 and will look to make some profit should they be forced to sell them.
