Kylian Mbappe is set for a month on the sidelines after suffering a tear in his thigh on Sunday evening.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was one of THREE players who left the field in agony, to leave Thomas Tuchel in the midst of an injury crisis.

The Ligue 1 champions secured a 4-0 win over Toulouse, but the loss of Mbappe will come as a huge negative.

According to Le Parisien, the 20-year-old will miss three weeks to a month after undergoing tests at a hospital in the French capital.

It means the forward will be unavailable until at least after the international break, missing France’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Albania and Andorra in September.

Mbappe will also miss PSG’s first Champions League group stage fixture as he joins the club’s growing injury list.
