    Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar will be fit for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Manchester United, Thomas Tuchel exposes.

    Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has exposed that Neymar will be fit for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Manchester United in the French capital.

    The Brazil international was excluded of the squad that dealt with Nimes in Ligue 1 on Friday, and it had actually been recommended that the attacker had actually gotten a knock on international task.

    Nevertheless, Tuchel firmly insisted that the former Santos youngster “doesn’t have any issue” and will be included against United in the European Cup next week.

    “Neymar doesn’t have any issue. We talked together, like I did with Kylian [Mbappe]. We had an honest discussion and I decided to let him rest today (Friday),” Tuchel informed press reporters.

    “He will be with us tomorrow (Saturday). He will train and get ready for the game against Manchester United. He will be on the pitch, for sure.”

    Neymar has been in excellent form for the French champions during the 2020-21 campaign, already contributing 2 goals and one assist in 3 appearances.

    Total the 28-year-old has netted 72 times and offered 42 assists in 88 getaways in all competitions since joining PSG from Barcelona ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
