PSG defenders Nuno Mendes and Presnel Kimpembe, who have been dealing with long-term injuries for months on end, have yet to make appearances in the current season for the team but they might be close to returning.

Nuno Mendes has started training and gradually reacquainting himself with the ball and Kimpembe is also making progress and is expected to resume training with the team shortly after suffering a season-ending injury last season.

PSG's strengthened bench depth has been a positive of their season so far, with the club reinforcing all positions during the transfer window.

New manager Luis Enrique expressed his satisfaction with the club's management during a recent press conference in terms of the signings completed throughout the summer window, but key players like Nuno Mendes and Presnel Kimpembe are still to debut this season.

Nuno Mendes, who suffered a ruptured hamstring tendon in July, has begun participating in certain team exercises during training. However, the medical staff is being cautious due to his four injuries last season, ensuring that the 21-year-old full-back fully recovers before returning to action to prevent any setbacks.

Presnel Kimpembe, on the other hand, is on the brink of returning to training with the PSG squad. Following an injury sustained against OM last February and subsequent Achilles tendon surgery, Kimpembe has been working on his fitness with two daily training sessions involving running, gym work, and rehabilitation.

Both players are expected to remain unavailable for PSG's upcoming match against OM at the Parc des Princes on Sunday, obviously, but they are getting closer than ever to making their comeback later this fall aiming at debuting throughout October.
