The French striker wants to win the race against time and is not ruled out to play the quarterfinals against Atalanta.
Paris Saint-Germain has positive news about one of its stars. Is that Kylian Mbappé is back after almost two weeks of inactivity, and four days into the quarterfinals of the Champions League against Atalanta.
The injury to the young Frenchman’s right ankle is not far from being cured, as the news from Faro, the place of the mini-camp carried out by the French soccer champions, points out.
The former Monaco striker moved to Portugal with the squad to face the final phase of the UCL 2019/20 in Lisbon, and he trained through individual training. Likewise, according to L’Equipe, Kyky – as he is known – was also able to touch the ball.
Last Wednesday, before the friendly match against Sochaux, Thomas Tuchel indicated that he will learn more about the state of Mbappé on Saturday and that he will then consult with the medical staff to find out if there is a possibility of aligning him against Bergamo.
After the forward’s injury in the French Cup final against Saint Etienne, the Paris club had announced that their player would be out for at least three weeks. So this quarter-final instance seemed too early for the 2018 Russian world champion, but now he seems close to being able to win the race against time.
