Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has insisted key trio Fabinho, Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe are focused and not distracted by frequent links with moves away.
Jardim insists that all of his players are ready for their first game.
He said: ‘All the players who were important last season are important to keep for the club.
‘But it has been showed over the years that it’s not always possible to keep the players, and you know how our project works.
‘So our goal is to work well with players who will stay here after the transfer window closes.
‘Yes, [Mbappe] did not score in pre-season, but he is working hard to change things. It’s not only about him, all the young players who were here last year and had a great season, Fabinho, Lemar, Kylian, we’re talking about them joining other clubs, but they stay focused.
‘Of course, Fabinho and Lemar are older, they may be a bit more mature, but Kylian, even these last two days, he’s been working well. They know that the most important thing is the pitch.’
Interest in Mbappe, Thomas Lemar and Fabinho has intensified over the summer.
The French champions have already lost Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva to Chelsea and Manchester City.
