Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has resumed training two weeks before the Champions League last-16 second leg against Manchester United, the French champions announced on Tuesday.

The Uruguayan has been out of action since pulling up injured after scoring a penalty against Bordeaux on February 9.

PSG brushed off the absences of both Cavani and Neymar, who is sidelined with a foot injury, by beating United 2-0 in last week’s first leg at Old Trafford, with Kylian Mbappe continuing his fine run of form with a goal.

But they now have hope of seeing Cavani return in time for the second match in Paris.
