Kylian Mbappe can't be expected to shoulder the "burden" in the absence of influential Paris Saint-Germain pair Edinson Cavani and Neymar against Manchester United, says manager Thomas Tuchel.

A new two-year deal was agreed, with Fellaini snubbing interest from afar in favour of extending his association with the Red Devils.

But the Brazil worldwide, who was signed in a £52 million deal from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer, arrived at United's team hotel on Monday evening. I want for us to be able to help him by finding him with good passes.

'Would I have liked to play for PSG? Yes.

Having opted against heading to the French capital, Fellaini ended up spending just six more months in Manchester before eventually moving on.

Speaking to Telefoot, Fellaini said during a yes or no quiz: 'Could I have signed for PSG last summer? Yes.

Fellaini is now an interested observer of the goings-on at Old Trafford, with United enjoying a welcome upturn in form under Solskjaer.

"I only stayed one year", he told radio station France Blue. I had attractive seasons.

He said: "I was watching it with Noah and we said, "Wow, that is a tough challenge".

However, Solskjaer has surprised his critics by masterminding a brilliant 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions to close the gap on the top four despite being handed the job with Manchester United 11 points adrift of fourth spot.

One Paris Saint-Germain player that is very familiar with Old Trafford is Di Maria.

Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Solskjaer has a chance to make himself the clear favourite to get the Old Trafford role on a permanent basis. But it's a Champions League match, in the round of 16, so it'll be 50-50. Those murmurs swelled into cautious talk when Solskjaer rounded off 2018 with three great wins.

Uruguay striker Cavani sustained a thigh injury in Saturday's 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Bordeaux, adding to PSG's injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg against a resurgent United side. I think Manchester United have the advantage'.
