Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti could make a return to face Manchester United in the Champions League after returning to training with the French club.
PSG coach Thomas Tuchel revealed on Friday that Verratti had trained with the rest of the squad and is set to start against Bordeaux on Saturday at the Parc des Princes.
The Italian midfielder had been rated a serious doubt to face United in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Old Trafford after suffering an ankle injury in January.
The news of Verratti's comeback will come as a welcome boost to the French side who are already without star player Neymar, who will miss both legs of the tie against United after fracturing his metatarsal.
Tuchel said: "Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa both trained without problems.
"Everyone is available, except Neymar. We will wait for training on Friday to see if they will play on Saturday.
"If possible, Marco will start. He will hopefully play 45 minutes, but we have to decide
"We await the final session and I hope that they will both be able to play versus Bordeaux. However, it will not be for 90 minutes."
