Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone would prefer to sign Neymar over Kylian Mbappe were he given the choice.

Simeone, 48, was asked, during an interview with El Partidazo de COPE, which of PSG’s fabled front two he would sign for Atleti were such a situation to arise.

Both players have made fine starts to the new season, with Neymar scoring four goals in as many games and Mbappe hitting four in three.

However, Simeone was clear on which player he would prefer at Wanda Metropolitano.

"Neymar for sure because he works more,” said Simeone.

"He worked a lot in the Luis Enrique's Barcelona team.

" Mbappe is a great player but he is more individualistic and without such a defined position."
Neymar moved to PSG for £200 million in the summer of 2017 and has gone on to score 32 goals in 35 games at the Parc des Princes.
