He narrowly missed the European golden boot to Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, having scored 33 goals - three less than that of the Argentine at the end of the season.

SunSport quoting Spanish TV channel El Chiringuito report that the 2018 World Cup winner has tendered his transfer request to leave the Ligue 1 champions.

And this is coming amid Real Madrid's interest in the striker, and if they fail to succeed in their bid for him, they will turn to sign former Barcelona star Neymar.

Meanwhile, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed he would not be able to keep either player from leaving Parc des Princes beyond the summer following reports the pair have fallen out.

He told reporters: "As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive.

"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."

"I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure, or perhaps elsewhere with a new project."
