PSG star Mbappe nearing unlikely injury return against Atalanta after completing training session

Kylian Mbappe's chances of playing for Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta are improving by the day after the attacker was spotted training on Saturday.

The Frenchman injured his right ankle late last month in the Coupe deFrance final against Saint-Etienne with early reports indicating he'd be out for at least three weeks, meaning he wouldmiss the Atalanta game.

Mbappe's recovery, however, appears to be defying early expectations and he was named in the PSG's travelling squad to face Atalanta.

Thomas Tuchel previously hinted that Saturday would be a defining day for Mbappe and his hopes ofplaying in the Champions League clash next week.

"The deadline is short, super short," the PSG boss told reporters."We spoke with the doctor today and we decided to meet again on Saturday to see what phase he is in and if it is possible that he is on the bench against Atalanta.But I do not expect too much."

Atalanta are likely preparing for Mbappe to play some part in the clash with midfielderRemo Freuler recently declaring he's skeptical that the Frenchman wouldn't be involved.

"I know Angel Di Maria is suspended but I will only believe in Mbappeand Marco Verratti's absence when I see the team on the pitch," Freuler told Eco di Bergamo.

"It's a Champions League quarter-final, everyone wants to be there and they are doing everything possible totake part in it."

PSG have had a tough run of injuries with Veratti injured in mid-week training, while bothLayvin Kurzawa andThilo Kehrer have been ruled out.

Tuchel himself was also an unexpected addition to the club's injury list with the German coach spraining hisankle and a breaking abone in his foot during a PSGtraining session on Thursday night.
