Both Neymar and Marco Verratti are fighting to be fit to face United in European action on February 12, after the South American suffered an injury to his right foot which was operated on last year.

He picked up the knock during Wednesday’s Coupe de France win over Strasbourg and was taken off in the second half.

A PSG statement confirmed that Neymar has suffered a recurrence of the metatarsal injury that threatened his World Cup hopes last year, and Tuchel doubts that he will be fit in time for the opening leg.

“It will be very difficult.

“As I explained on Saturday, it is too early to talk about a possible return date.

“To start with, we must wait at least one week — this period and his reaction to the treatment will be important. Only then can we be more precise. That said, it is not a secret — it will be very difficult,” the German tactician told Canal+ after a 4-1 Ligue 1 home win over Rennes on Sunday.
