During his duty with the French National Team, Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé contracted the coronavirus. As a result, the 21-year-old has missed the capital club’s first two matches of the Ligue 1 season.
However, the France international could be an option for PSG, according to Le Parisien. With the new health protocols reducing the self-isolation to seven days, it opens the possibility of Mbappé playing on the road against OGC Nice.
With Neymar suspended for his red card in Le Classique versus Olympique de Marseille and possibly facing a seven-match ban.
Les Parisiens need Mbappé back in the starting eleven as they try and turn around a slow start to their 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign. Nonetheless, his return hinges on a negative test result.
Meanwhile, as PSG hopes for Mbappé’s return, they will see other names intergraded in the starting eleven as Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos, and Keylor Nava will likely play against FC Metz.
