"It is true that when it comes to me, there are double standards. My response was that N'Golo would do our team some good", Mbappe said.

The French champions' world-record €222 million signing from last summer, who was voted Ligue 1 player of the season in his debut campaign, has been regularly linked with Real Madrid since his arrival from Barcelona.

However, Neymar has no plans to leave the Ligue 1 holders following the World Cup in Russian Federation, where Brazil lost in the quarter-finals.

In an interview with AFP over the weekend, the 26-year-old forward also berated the standard of officiating in Russian Federation and said: "I went to the World Cup to play, to beat the opposition, not to get kicked".

"In the end, I put a few words in his pocket, which I am sure he must have discovered once he got home, to deliver the message".

Brazilian ace, Neymar has stated that there was no ill-feeling between him and France youngster, Kylian Mbappe.

Kante joined Chelsea for £32m ($42m) in the summer of 2016, penning a five-year contract with the Blues.

PSG's Brazilian star Neymar arrives to participate in the charity auction of the Neymar Jr.

And Kante's display in the World Cup would have driven his price tag up even more, although PSG are no strangers to spending big on players.

The duo both shone at the World Cup in Russian Federation, as Didier Deschamps men avoided a repeat of their Euro 2016 heartache by beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.

The forward confirmed he has already received one transfer proposal - from French president and Marseille fan Emmanuel Macron.

Meanwhile, Mbappe said he hopes to be in contention for the Ballon d'Or alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and PSG teammate Neymar. "I have got more reason to be happy than sad".
