AS MONACO STRIKER Kylian Mbappe was sent home following an angry clash with team-mate Andrea Raggi during a training session last week.

The forward has been linked with a move away from the Stade Louis II all summer, with this week’s incident heightening speculation of a possible exit.

L’Equipe report that the player refused to leave the pitch after a clash with team-mate Raggi last Tuesday, before technical staff had to forcibly remove the 18-year-old.

Both players were subsequently left out of the squad for Monaco’s 1-0 win away to Metz on Friday night.

Mbappe is valued at over €150 million, with PSG and Real Madrid possible destinations for the player with just 11 days left before the transfer window closes.

Mbappe scored 17 goals in 29 games in Ligue 1 last season, also helping Monaco to the semi-finals of the Uefa Champions League for the first time in 13 years.

Asked why he left the player out of his squad for Friday’s win against Metz, manager Jardim said: ”It is our duty to protect him at the moment.”
