Tuchel believes it'll be 'super difficult' for Cavani to face Manchester United

PSG will be shorn of two members of their attacking trio through injury in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Old Trafford after Cavani joined Neymar on the sidelines with a hip injury.

"Could I have signed for PSG last summer? Yes".

"There is an effect [from Solskjaer]", Tuchel said.

"We will not change our approach just because of these absences. We are PSG, we are used to playing offensively and creating chances", he said. It's our DNA and changing that is hard.

When the draw for the last 16 was made PSG were widely viewed as favourites to progress with United labouring in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, but caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has overseen a transformation in fortunes.

Tuchel added that it was wrong to expect Kylian Mbappe to make up for the injured South American pair. "He has his own qualities, but it is not his job to do what they do".

"We are trying to pay him back in kind and things are working out well at the moment".

"Kylian is here to grow and this is the flawless moment for that".

"Was it Thomas Tuchel who did not want me to come? No".

"I'd love to have a good answer but I'm not sure it's on me to talk about the situation". "I sent a message to Edi after the Bordeaux match. We are really happy to have him [Solskjaer] here and we hope we can continue [together], but the final decision isn't with us".

Aaron Ramsey 'signs £400,000-a-week deal with Juventus'
Arsenal and Wales worldwide midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus and will join the Scudetto holders on July 1 on a four-year deal.

Draxler is unsure if he will start but feels ready for whatever role Tuchel might have in mind for him and does not see himself as a Neymar replacement.

"Let me put it in another way, will Manchester United miss [Paul] Pogba if he was not there tomorrow, or [Marcus] Rashford?" he said.

"Would I have liked to play for PSG? Yes". Hopefully, he gives a good performance.

The Belgium global found himself heading towards the free agent pool 18 months ago as his contract at Old Trafford ran down. "I have spoken with him a bit about United, and although I will not tell you what he had to say, he respects this club".

"I've known Paul for a long time and I have played against him for Germany against France and sometimes we have managed to stop him", he said.
