The star striker, who is leaving PSG after seven seasons at the club, has not been included in a group of 20 players selected by coach Luis Enrique.

Asked to comment, PSG did not give a reason to justify Mbappé’s absence.

The forward, who is widely expected to join Real Madrid, is not on the list of PSG players who are unavailable through injury.

Mbappé is the club’s all-time top scorer with 256 goals, 191 of which have come in the league.

He will have a final opportunity to play for PSG in the French Cup final on May 25 against Lyon.

Mbappé has won six Ligue 1 titles with PSG. He will finish as the league’s top scorer for the sixth time, and fifth outright after sharing the 2020 award with Monaco‘s Wissam Ben Yedder.

Mbappé confirmed last week he will leave at the end of the season, having already told PSG in February.

Ousmane Dembélé, Vitinha, Marquinhos, Fabián Ruiz and Gianluigi Donnarumma will also sit out the trip to Metz.
