PSG star Neymar reveals which game he expects to return for

Neymar expects to return for Paris Saint-Germain's final league game of the season against SM Caen on May 19.

"I'm still about a month away", the 26-year-old former darling of Barcelona told Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo.

Neymar has been out of action since he broke a metatarsal bone in his foot on February 25.

Real Madrid had always appeared to be the forward's most likely destination this summer, with the reigning La Liga champions ready to cull a number of their top stars to freshen up a squad that has under-performed domestically this season. "Perhaps he'll have time to play a few matches before the end of the season", Emery said. It is a great opportunity - we want to win and play well.

A win for PSG will open up a 17-point advantage with just 15 left to play for and a draw would mean that Monaco could only hope to finish level on points at best.

Emery is widely expected to be replaced by Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, but the current PSG coach says he remains focused on results for now.

The news will be welcomed by Brazil coach Tite as it means he will have plenty of time to prepare for the World Cup, which kicks off in Russian Federation on Jun 14.

However, PSG submitted to Real's supremacy in the last 16 of the Champions League, and there have been rumours about Neymar not being happy at the Parc des Princes. It would come a year after the side from the principality finished eight points clear of PSG at the summit in a campaign which also saw them reach the Champions League semi-finals.
