EDINSON CAVANI appeared to TACKLE team-mate Neymar when his Brazilian team-mate was looking to score.

Famously, the feuding pair have failed to see eye to eye ever since Neymar arrived from Barcelona in a world-record £200million deal.

And their relationship might now hit an all-time low after this incident during their Champions League Group C match with Napoli.

Things had apparently improved between the pair but Neymar will surely be fuming after the incident.

It came in the opening minute of the game as Neymar galloped into the box and had an opportunity to hit the back of the net.

Cavani got in his what appeared to be an accident but blocked the shot - and even injured the 25-year-old.

Neymar hobbled off much to the dismay of the home fans.

However, he ran the knock off and returned to the pitch as sighs of relief rang out at the Parc de Princes.

It comes at a time when Neymar’s future with the French giants is in some doubt.

He has been linked with a sensational return to Barcelona - just months after leaving the Nou Camp.

However, Barca manager Ernesto Valverde moved quickly to play down the rumours.

“Any time is good to speculate, but Neymar plays for another team now,” he said.

“It’s speculation, we’re not in the market at the moment or looking short term, but anything can happen in football.”

The world’s most expensive player has also been linked with Real Madrid to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
