Are we getting clues of Kylian Mbappe’s fitness on social media suggesting he is on the road to making the game against Atalanta?

Thomas Tuchel has played the role of the hopeless manager well this past week. The German tactician is giving little away other than he lives in hope that his talisman Kylian Mbappe will make a miraculous recovery from injury.

The French World Cup winner sustained an ankle injury after a vicious tackle in the French Cup final against St. Etienne.

Since then the PSG boss has built up the hype surrounding a race against time to get the forward ready for the biggest game in the club’s history.

He is giving little away as the mind games between Tuchel and Gasperini build, up.

However, as hard as Tuchel has tried to keep everything under wraps, the player appears to be giving us a clue here and there.

First, there was the exercise bike work out. No protective boot that we have become used to seeing in these kinds of injuries and the crutches he used earlier in the week had vanished too.

Then he was pictured jogging in training.

Now Neymar has made a post hinting that the dynamic duo is back together and ready for action.

All the clues seem to hint towards Kylian Mbappe playing some kind of part in the Champions League quarter-final in Portugal. Even the bookies still have him as favorite to score PSG’s first goal, with Odds Checker quoting him at 7 to 2.
