Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani - last season's Ligue 1 Conforama top scorer - has returned to full training with his teammates after eight weeks out inured and is a chance to take the field against Angers on Saturday.

Cavani picked up a calf injury after scoring two spectacular goals in Uruguay's last-16 defeat of Portugal at the World cup in Russia on 30 June and has been out of action ever since.


However, the 31-year-old returned to full training on Tuesday, completing the session with his teammates after having been on an individualised recovery/pre-season preparation regime for eight weeks.

Thus Paris Saint-Germain's all-time top scorer is a chance to return for Angers SCO's Ligue 1 Conforama Week 3 visit to the Parc des Princes, as is Germany midfielder Julian Draxler, who also trained normally after injury forced him out of the squad for the trip to Guingamp in Week 2. Meanwhile midfielder Marco Verratti (groin) and left-back Layvin Kurzawa(back) remain unavailable.
