Verratti back in PSG training ahead of Champions League clash
Marco Verratti has returned to training with Paris Saint-Germain, giving the Ligue 1 pioneers a convenient wellness support in front of one month from now’s Champions League conflict with Manchester United.
Verratti limped off during a game against Guingamp last month and was diagnosed with a sprained ankle, making him an uncertainty for the last-16 tie against United.
But the Italy midfielder trained with his team-mates on Monday and could be fit to play at Old Trafford on February 12.
Thomas Tuchel is required to be without Brazil forward Neymar for both legs, however.
The world’s most expensive player suffered a recurrence of a foot injury in a Coupe de France win against Strasbourg a month ago.
Verratti was absent as PSG lost for the first time in Ligue 1 this season, tumbling to a 2-1 overcome away to Lyon on Sunday.
