Angel Di Maria returns to Man United as PSG train at Old Trafford

last-16 tie with Manchester United
The Paris giants will face United for the first time ever in a competitive match on Tuesday night as their two-legged European clash gets underway.
But PSG winger Angel Di Maria will find himself in familiar surroundings, having spent the 2014-15 season as a United player.
Di Maria did not enjoy the best of times in England, but he looked relaxed as he trained alongside his PSG team-mates on the eve of Tuesday's first leg.
Along with Kylian Mbappe, 30-year-old Di Maria will be one of the biggest names on PSG's Old Trafford team-sheet as star duo Neymar and Edinson Cavani are set to miss the game through injury.
There had been a glimmer of hope that Cavani may shake off a thigh issue to feature, but PSG confirmed on Monday that he will not be in their squad this week.  
Right back Thomas Meunier is also unavailable, forcing PSG boss Thomas Tuchel to make changes, although he is reluctant to tweak his tactics too much.
Speaking via a translator on Monday, Tuchel said: 'Obviously we're going to be missing a couple of key attackers, but you don't change your identity for that reason.
'We have a tradition, we play attacking football and that is how we're used to playing — to create chances.
'It's in our DNA. That's how we play. To change it is really difficult.'
