Neymar is unlikely to play when Paris Saint-Germain travel to Manchester United in the Champions League next month, according to head coach Thomas Tuchel.

The Ligue 1 champions announced the world's most expensive player had suffered a “painful recurrence” of the injury he sustained to his right foot last season after he limped out of this week's 2-0 win over Strasbourg in the Coupe de France.

PSG returned to action in the absence of their star attacker on Sunday, swatting aside Rennes 4-1 as Edinson Cavani hit a brace.

As the match was being played, RMC Sport reported Neymar would not be fit to play in the first leg of the last-16 tie at Old Trafford on February 12.

Tuchel acknowledged this was the most likely outcome, telling Canal Plus: “It’s going to be super difficult,” he said.

“As I explained [on Saturday] it’s too early to talk about a return date. We have to wait for the first week, which is very important, and his reaction to treatment.

“Only after that can we be more precise. But it’s going to be super difficult – that’s not a secret.” (Goal)
