Neymar Returns to PSG Training

Neymar returned to the Paris Saint-Germain training centre on Saturday in a massive boost for the French giants and Brazil ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

The Ligue 1 champions tweeted photos of the Brazilian star working out in the gym with weights and other leg-strengthening equipment.

Neymar flew back into France on Friday to rejoin the club after an operation on a broken foot bone during the French classic against Olympique Marseilles in March.

The 26-year-old has made clear that his main target is to be fit to play for Brazil in the World Cup in Russia, with chances of him featuring for PSG again this season very slim.

Neymar is expected to watch from the stands at the Stade de France on Tuesday when PSG take on third-division Les Herbiers in the French Cup final, before the league title celebration next Saturday when PSG entertain Rennes at the Parc des Princes.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, who operated on Neymar, told Folha, a Sao Paulo newspaper, that the goal is to have the player “100 percent fit for the start of training camp” in Brazil on May 21.

Rumours over the player’s future continue to swirl in Spain with sports daily Marca saying on Sunday that the striker wants “to play with CR7”, at Real Madrid, while other sources say he’s keen for a return to Barcelona after his world record transfer last season.
