Thiago Silva could return to face Marseille this weekend

The Brazil star suffered a thigh strain in a 0-0 draw with Ajaccio on January 11, but has resumed training in Clairefontaine before the clash with their bitter foes in 'Le Classique'.

PSG are three points clear of second-placed Lyon at the summit of Ligue 1, with Marseille two points further back in third spot before their trip to the Parc des Princes.

PSG continue to have concerns over several players with Lucas Moura (ankle) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (foot) needing treatment and defensive midfielder Thiago Motta already out with a thigh injury.

The door could be open for David Beckham to make his debut if the injury problems continue to mount up for PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti.
