The attacker for Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappe, appears to be questionable for the Champions League match against Newcastle United next month.
The France international’s departure from the Ligue 1 champions at one point in the summer seemed probable when he resisted signing a new deal.
Nevertheless, despite the possibility of the World Cup champion from 2018 leaving on a free transfer, he has just been reintegrated back into the first-team fold.
In just 341 minutes of Ligue 1 play, seven goals have been scored, including one last week during the international match against Borussia Dortmund.
The 24-year-old’s participation in the following PSG European match, however, is in doubt due to an injury sustained against Marseille on Sunday night.
Shortly after the halfway point, Mbappe was injured after colliding with Leonardo Balerdi of Marseille, giving PSG a 1-0 lead.
Mbappe was then taken off the field after being unable to continue, and he was later seen receiving additional care in the dugout.
Goncalo Ramos, Mbappe’s replacement, scored twice as Luis Enrique’s team romped to a resounding victory at Parc des Princes, giving the French giants a 4-0 victory in Le Classique.
However, given that PSG is conscious that they must earn every point possible to advance in what is thought to be the toughest group in this season’s Champions League, there will be anxiety regarding Mbappe.
PSG is now in first place after defeating Dortmund 2-0, but three of their final five games are away from home, beginning with a trip to St. James’ Park on October 4.
Newcastle defeated Sheffield United 8-0 on Sunday after holding AC Milan to a scoreless draw at San Siro on Matchday One.
PSG just has one game left before their trip to England, against Clermont Foot on the road on September 30, but Newcastle is presently juggling a busy schedule.
Before inviting PSG to the North-East, Eddie Howe’s team had two games left. On Wednesday, they face Manchester City in the EFL Cup, and three days later, Burnley is the opponent.
