The 18-year-old continues to be closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and has been omitted by Leonardo Jardim

Kylian Mbappe has been left out of Monaco’s starting XI to face Dijon amid mounting transfer speculation.

Rumours are rife that the 18-year-old forward could make a move to Paris Saint-Germain, following in the footsteps of Neymar, but there has also been interest from Real Madrid and several Premier League sides.

On Friday, meanwhile, PSG boss Unai Emery refused to rule out a move for the striker.

Mbappe struggled into the opening match of the season against Toulouse a week ago and went off injured, although there was never any question he would miss the trip to Burgundy.

Nevertheless, the young France international finds himself among the substitutes for the Ligue 1 fixture, with Adama Diakhaby preferred in his stead to feature alongside Radamel Falcao at the forefront of the attack.
