No new injury worries for Manchester United ahead of Champions League test in Turkey

New boy Alex Telles – who used to play in Turkey for Galatasaray – cannot be selected after recently testing positive for coronavirus, while Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly are unavailable.

Facundo Pellistri has not travelled as part of the 24-man squad, while Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero and the injured Phil Jones will not be involved in the group stage after being omitted from the squad submitted to UEFA.

Manchester United are in pole position in Group H after victories over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig in their last two Champions League group games, with Marcus Rashford stealing the show in both of them including a hat trick in the 5-0 demolition of Leipzig last time out.

Cavani and Maguire miss Manchester United’s trip to PSG

United are in Group H along with PSG, Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and Turkish Champions Istanbul Basaksehir in what is being considered the traditional ‘group of death’ for this season.

United’s first test of the Champions League campaign is to travel to the Parc des Princes, the scene of the most unlikely of comebacks in this same competition in 2019.

Marcus Rashford’s stoppage time penalty in Paris ensured United went through at the expense of the French Champions, who held a 2-goal advantage from the first leg at Old Trafford.

PSG reached last season’s Champions League final, though, where they were beaten by Bayern Munich. United meanwhile were knocked out by eventual winners Sevilla in the Europa League last campaign.

The Ligue 1 side have been plagued by injury this week, with several first team stars major doubts for the game.

Juan Bernat definitely misses out with knee ligament damage, but Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Mauro Icardi, Thilo Kehrer and Julian Draxler are all doubts.

Manager Thomas Tuchel claimed that his side will welcome United with a threadbare squad – no doubt a boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian though won’t hand Edinson Cavani his debut against his former club, with the deadline day arrival not travelling to the French capital along with United skipper Harry Maguire.

Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones are not likely to feature, but Anthony Martial can play as his Premier League red card doesn’t count for Champions League games – likely leaving Cavani to plug the gap in the Premier League on Saturday.

Mason Greenwood is carrying a knock and it is unknown if he has travelled to Paris. Axel Tuanzebe is with the squad meanwhile as he recovers from injury.

Kick off between United and PSG at the Parc des Princes is 2000 GMT on Tuesday.

Chelsea after PSG’s Thiago Silva

That’s according to Sky Sports, who claim the 35-year-old Brazilian is being targeted by the Blues in an attempt to shore-up their back line.

Silva, who turns 36 in September, is being tipped to sign a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge just a mater of days after his current club PSG were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in Sunday’s Champions League final.

The defender, who has been capped nearly 90 times for his country, has been in Paris since 2012 and enjoyed immense success in the French capital.

However, there are question marks over Silva’s age and whether he has the ability to perform in the Premier League, especially considering Chelsea allowed the vastly experienced and younger duo of Gary Cahill and David Luiz to depart the club last summer.

Elsewhere, Chelsea’s long-anticipated swoop for Leicester City left back Ben Chilwell could hit a roadblock if the England defender is unable to get a solid diagnosis on a plaguing heel injury which has been niggling him for large parts of the season.

That’s according to British newspaper The Sun, who claim the Blues are ready to pull the plug on the £50m switch for the Foxes man if scans reveal his fitness may be in question for the start of the new Premier League season.
