Cavani to miss PSG-United clash

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are purring.

"I don't know", Buffon, who signed a one-year deal and has an option for a further 12 months, said when asked about his future.

One black mark against his name will not be the end of Solskjaer as a contender for the permanent gig at Old Trafford, but ultimately this result came about from United's inability to adapt to new realities once Plan A didn't work and their personnel had been forced to change.

"My last one was when we beat Roma 7-1 (in 2007)", he said.

United made a loss when they sold Di Maria for 63 million euros (£44.3 million at the time), but it was very much PSG's gain.

Solskjaer used a famous game from his own career as a signpost to the mindset he expects on Tuesday night.

A move elsewhere was expected, but the trust shown in him by Jose Mourinho convinced the 31-year-old to commit to fresh terms. I've said it in the past: we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction.


"When we go into games confident as we are now, in form, we are looking forward to the game". Nevertheless, it is definitely bound to be a cracker of a contest, given the fort that is Old Trafford, given the colossal figures United still are at their home and given how PSG can turn tables on their day at any corner of the world.

There have been glimpses, such as decisions to drop Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez and to sell Marouane Fellaini, but as the weeks progress and the games get bigger, Solskjaer will have to make even bigger calls.

Martial on Solskjaer: The Manchester United star interacted with the media ahead of the game against PSG.

The Premier League giants return to their continental aspirations when they meet Ligue 1 champions PSG in the first leg of their last 16 clash at Old Trafford tonight. "It's not his job to replace Neymar and Cavani and do the job of all three of them". PSG has flattered to deceive in the knockouts of the Champions League and that has got a lot to do with what the cognoscenti term "Champions League Pedigree" which roughly means the big game mentality. We're not sure if he swore that time, but, yeah, he probably did then too.

The former United winger, booed throughout and shoved into the advertising hoardings by Ashley Young during the first half, set-up Mpabbe's 23rd goal of his increasingly prolific season seven minutes later, when his low centre was cleverly turned home by the France worldwide.

"I think the players are still disappointed with the two points lost against Burnley and so am I".
