Kylian Mbappe will be part of the PSG travelling squad to face Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second-leg on Tuesday night, according to the latest emerging information from France.

It had been revealed earlier on Sunday evening by French news outlet L'Equipe that Kylian Mbappe did not take part in training on Sunday, while it was also clarified that it remained difficult to know if his absence was merely a 'precaution', or whether it is hiding 'something more worrying' ahead of the decisive clash on Tuesday night.

However, it appears to have been the latter, as the player is set to travel to England with the rest of the team as expected on Monday morning.
