At one time there was serious doubt about Neymar’s chances of heading to Russia for the FIFA World Cup, but the versatile attacker is on track to return ahead of the summer’s big competition.
The 26-year-old returned to Paris on Friday after spending time in his native Brazil rehabbing his injured ankle and foot.
It is believed that Neymar could return for Paris Saint-Germain’s season finale against Caen on May 19, when the Parisians can officially celebrate their Ligue 1 crown.
The Brazil international hasn’t played since February 25, but appears on track to be healthy well before next month’s World Cup.
Neymar suffered a bone break in his right foot during a 3-0 win against Marseille, leaving the superstar attacker sidelined over the last two months-plus.
This season, Neymar has tallied 28 goals in all competitions, which ranks second in the squad trailing only striker Edinson Cavani (36).Follow @MattReedFutbol
