Brazil captain Neymar will return to Paris in two to three weeks, according to the manager of Paris Saint-Germain Unai Emery.
Neymar fractured his foot while in action for PSG in a 3-0 Ligue 1 win against rivals Marseille last month and he was reportedly doubtful for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
But Emery believes Neymar is closing in on a return to the pitch, although Saturday’s Coupe de la Ligue final against Monaco will come far too soon.
“I talked to him this week,” Emery told reporters on Friday during his conference.
“He’s okay, quiet, we were talking about the final.
“He’ll be watching it and then he’ll be back [in Paris] in two or three weeks.”
Neymar is unlikely to be ready for the Coupe de France semi-final against Caen on April 18 but, should PSG qualify, the final on May 8 could be a realistic return date, according to reports.
