After the victory in Barcelona, the Paris Saint-Germain infirmary is being emptied. And an important player could extend soon.
It is with a smile and relaxation that the Paris Saint Germain tackles this weekend, which will end with a shock against AS Monaco at the Parc des Princes. The week of the Parisians is already successful, or in any case it started perfectly with this resounding victory on the lawn of FC Barcelona (1-4), which made us forget the fact that several holders were absent.
On the front of the wounded, precisely, the good news is linked. No player is affected by Covid-19 anymore, since Timothée Pembélé is done with the disease. And the other players affected by physical glitches are recovering well. This is the case withAngel Di Maria, who has suffered from thigh since the victory in Marseille two weeks ago. He will miss the duel against Monaco, but should resume the following week, according to Le Parisien, in view of the reception of Dijon (Saturday 27).
Neymar back in early March
At the same time, Neymar He is also making good progress in his recovery. His return to training is expected in the first week of March, which leaves him a small chance to play in the knockout stages of the Champions League against Barça. Given the context, and especially the score of the first leg, it is certain that no risk will be taken with the Brazilian.
And finally, behind the scenes, PSG is making good progress on the contract extension of an important player. This is not one of the jewels of the attack (Neymar, Mbappé or Di Maria), but of Juan Bernat. The Spanish full-back, seriously injured in the knee at the start of the season, is currently free next June. But according to RMC, the resignature of the 27-year-old, who has established himself as a reliable holder in his left-back position, is very close to being successful.
