With a Champions League last 16 matchup approaching, Paris Saint-Germain does not want to jeopardize Kylian Mbappe's injured ankle in Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Lille.
The injury occurred during PSG's French Cup semifinal victory against Brest on Thursday, when Mbappe scored the game's first goal. "Reassuring" reports emerged from the initial medical examinations, but PSG coach Luis Enrique will not want to take a chance with his key asset before Real Sociedad's Champions League visit five days later.
On Friday, the player who is rumored to be heading to Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the season will undergo more testing.
The future of Mbappe and PSG's continued existence at their Parc des Princes stadium are both unknown.
