In a statement, PSG said: “Neymar will start physical preparation with the ball tomorrow. Today’s checks have shown a quite satisfactory consolidation of the lesion on his fifth metatarsal”.

The winger underwent the surgery on March 3rd after suffering the broken foot on 25th February, and has been forced to watch his PSG team-mates from the stands as they claimed the Ligue 1 title, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue during his first season within the French capital following his transfer from Barcelona last summer.

Having missed the final two months of the competitive season, Neymar will be at the Parc Des Princes today when PSG are handed their Ligue 1 Champions Trophy, following their game against Stade Rennais.

Neymar participated in 30 games across all competitions, scoring 28 goals in those games to make his mark on the French domestic season as he formidably attempts to get out of former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi’s shadow and win the Ballon d’or for himself as the winger comes into his prime.

Since joining PSG last summer, Neymar has continuously been linked with a move away from the French capital already, with Real Madrid seemingly the front runners for his signature, and the Brazilian winger has been speculated to want a move away from PSG in recent times, however the media talk certainly hasn’t affected his on-pitch performances.

However, Neymar is expected to be heading to Russia this summer with his national team, Brazil, as the world-record champions look to add to their five World Cups, the last coming in 2002, with Neymar the poster boy of his national team for the past four or five years now.
