The midfielder recently left Old Trafford for the Chinese Super League, but he has revealed that PSG wanted to bring him to the French capital last summer. "We have to wait for Marco's opinion".
"There is a little bit of hope, though, because there is always hope".
"No [we are not favourites], I think we are tied, it's 50/50."
Manchester United may have received a boost in their prospects of beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League after both Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier were hauled off the pitch against Bordeaux with injury concerns. The game against Manchester United is very close and we will use the time to recover as quickly as possible. "We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar", Tuchel added. Without "Ney", maybe without Marco, maybe without "Edi". It is necessary to have these backup ideas in mind and I can think of several in advance. The form of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial has hogged all the headlines, and at home, they could well be favourites against PSG when they come visiting for the Champions League clash on Tuesday.
"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions".
Verratti lasted just under an hour before making way for recent signing Leandro Paredes, and Tuchel must now decide whether to start the Italian playmaker in England.
Meanwhile United have a more or less fully fit squad at the moment with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even resting some key players during their win over Fulham.
