PSG still plan to attack Manchester United despite Neymar, Cavani absences

Edinson Cavani reacts at Parc des Princes

If it's tomorrow, with them as the home team at Old Trafford, I'm not sure it's 50/50.

A move elsewhere was expected, but the trust shown in him by Jose Mourinho convinced the 31-year-old to commit to fresh terms.

Fellaini explained that, when answering simple Yes/No questions, he did have the chance to join the Ligue 1 champions.

Julian Draxler, who could also help to fill the void created by Neymar and Cavani, admitted that the South American pair will be missed, but wants his teammates to focus on themselves.

"Over 180 minutes, I would say it's a 50/50 game".

"I only stayed one year".

Having opted against heading to the French capital, Fellaini ended up spending just six more months in Manchester before eventually moving on.

Tuchel refused to be drawn on what Solskjaer had done to achieve such impressive results but does expects United to be bold in their approach - just like their caretaker manager was during his playing days at the club. "I sent a message to Edi after the Bordeaux match".

"When Ole Gunnar happened, somehow, I nearly felt that Sir Alex had returned", the England star told L'Equipe . I had lovely seasons.

Fellaini is now an interested observer of the goings-on at Old Trafford, with United enjoying a welcome upturn in form under Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has since won 10 of his 11 games in charge, propelling United into the top four in the process, and Tuchel admitted the transformation was startling and that he may have to curb some of their natural attacking instincts to cope with the threat posed by Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in particular.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel faces the task of drumming up an emergency plan for the visit to Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League in the definite absence of Neymar and the possible unavailability of Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani.

" To change that is really hard but I'm sure there will be times where we will defend deeply".

"If I really had the choice, I would play winger, my favourite position", Young continued.

"It's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.
