Zlatan Ibrahimovic

"He has resumed running and there is a 90 per cent chance that he will be at the coach's disposal in 10 days," Rolland told French sports daily L'Equipe.

Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, has scored 25 goals from 30 league appearances this season, has been out of action for almost four weeks since he sustained a thigh injury in PSG's Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Parc des Princes.

Without him, PSG won the League Cup final, but they lost two matches and have been unable to wrap up the Ligue 1 title after being held to a 1-1 draw at lowly Sochaux on Sunday.

They would claim their second consecutive league title in the next round of matches on May 7 if they beat Rennes at home or do at least as well as second-placed Monaco who take on En Avant Guingamp.

PSG have 83 points with three matches left to Monaco's 75.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
