Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe believes that he along with Lionel Messi and Neymar all have to work together if they have to succeed as a front three at the club, claiming, "you have to share the cake so that all three can eat".

Mbappe has had his fair share of difficulties this season, with the most notable incident being when he was pictured criticising Neymar on the bench for the Brazilian's failure to pass him the ball.

"When you play up top with players like that, you have to share the cake so that all three can eat. You can't say that you'll pass to one and not the other. You have to be smart. There will always be moments of frustration, but the only interest the three of us have is to make PSG win," the youngster told RMC Sport.

The youngster has dismissed reports that he was unhappy with Messi's arrival at PSG amid much fanfare, dismissing such speculation as nonsense.

"It's very easy to play with Messi, really. He really understands football, always knows what to do. If he has to dribble past everyone and score a goal, he'll do it. If he has to play with one touch, he'll do it. He's one of the best, if not the best."

The 22-year-old recently confirmed that he told the bosses at PSG that he wanted to leave the club last summer, and with the players contract expiring next summer - his future at Paris remains uncertain.
