PSG have suffered another injury setback ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United, with Edinson Cavani now a doubt.
Cavani suffered a hip injury after taking a penalty in the 1-0 win over Bordeaux on Saturday, with PSG boss Thomas Tuchel saying that ‘it will be very difficult for him to play’ in Tuesday night’s clash at Old Trafford.
“Medical examinations have revealed an injured tendon in Edinson Cavani’s right hip,” a statement reads on psg.fr.
“The treatment of this injury and the length of his unavailability will depend on the evolution of the injury over the coming days.”
Speaking to French TV this morning, Thomas Tuchel said that he wasn’t expecting good news ahead of the trip to face a resurgent Manchester United.
“There is no good news for Edi this morning,” Tuchel said.
“There are still examinations today at our training centre, the club will speak a little later, but in my opinion the news is not going to be very good. It will be very difficult for him to play.
“There is a very small hope. We always hope but the first exams are not good.”
PSG will also be without £198 million forward, Neymar, who fractured a metatarsal last month, with the striker being ruled out for around 10 weeks.
