Most of the PSG players not present in the Qatar World Cup have already returned to Paris and could be found training at Camp des Loges on Monday to kick off their week.

The list of players training in the PSG facilities on Monday included two prominent names: those of Italy internationals Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The two Italians joined their teammates at the training facilities for the first time since the start of the World Cup break three weeks ago.

Even though Italy didn't perform in Qatar after failing to qualify for the World Cup, the European country had scheduled games for the break for which both PSG players were called-up.

Both midfielder Verratti and goalkeeper Donnarumma were given extra-day vacation periods after the conclusion of their games to return to Paris, with the rest of the non-World-Cup participants coming back a week ago.

Those present at the Qatar World Cup have been given a 10-day period to return from the nation after their teams are eliminated from contention.

Only Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, and Achraf Hakimi are still contending for the ultimate trophy, though, with the rest of the PSG players involved in the tournament either eliminated or already back nurturing injuries.

Portugal internationals Danilo and Nune Mendes were forced to return to Paris last week missing Portugal's defeat to Morocco because of injuries and a preference of PSG to have them back recovering on location as soon as possible.

Fabian Ruiz, Spain international eliminated by Morocco from World Camp contention, also returned to Paris and attended the Camp des Loges last week.

Presnel Kimpembe was called up by France national coach Didier Deschamps but an injury picked up at the start of the World Cup sent him home earlier, but only figuratively, as he remained in the Aspetar clinic (in Qatar) to speed up his recovery for the second half the season according to Le Parisien.

A total of 15 players returned to the training camp last Wednesday when the team regathered to get ready for the two friendlies to be played before the return of Ligue 1 in late December.

PSG will play two friendly matches against Paris FC (Ligue 2), on Friday, Dec. 16, and against Quevilly-Rouen Métropole (Ligue 2) on Wednesday, Dec. 21.
