Nordi Mukiele out for the season, Renato Sanches for a month
Already boasting a depleted squad because of multiple injuries, PSG will miss two more players for around a month... and the remainder of the season. With the Ligue 1 title on the line, those are definitely bad news for coach Christophe Galtier.
According to information shared by PSG's medical team on Tuesday morning, Renato Sanches underwent tests earlier this week and he is now expected to miss three to four months while nursing a right adductor injury.
The Portugal international should be back training in around a month, but if that period of time gets a bit elongated, Sanches is at risk of barely featuring in the remaining matches on PSG's schedule, if at all.
Considering the rumors of a potential sale next summer, who knows if Sanches might have already played his last minutes for PSG this season... and for his professional career.
Mukiele will undergo season-ending surgery. Renato Sanches might never again play for PSG
More worrying is France international Nordi Mukiele's injury, who he had already been nurturing for a while missing multiple games in recent games.
Mukiele will join teammates Presnel Kimpembe and Neymar on the shelves for the remainder of the season, as he will undergo a season-ending operation on Tuesday in Finland.
According to PSG's medical staff, Mukiele suffered an "upper hamstring injury," and Paris Saint-Germain and the player agreed to go the surgery way in order to "minimize the risk of recurrence" in the future.
PSG will face Lens next Saturday not having any of Mukiele, Sanches, Kimpembe, and Neymar. Juan Bernat also missed last weekend's game against Nice, and the same was the case with Marco Verratti.
On the bright side of things, Sergio Ramos returned to the defensive line after missing time injury, while PSG also welcomed back Carlos Soler, who started the game against Nice and should be fit going forward. Marquinhos, Verratti, and even Bernat should be good to go in the reception of Lens for the 31st game of the Ligue 1 campaign.
