Report: Neymar Aiming to be Back for Fixture Against AS Monaco

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is back with the club after returning from international duty with the Brazilian national team. He did not play in Brazil’s fixture against Venezuela due to his adductor injury. Officials for the national team decided that it was best to simply release him early so he can continue to recover from his injury with PSG’s medical staff. But the forward is currently aiming on returning to the feature with the team this week in its Ligue 1 fixture against AS Monaco, according to a report from Le Parisien.

The report specifies that Neymar is hoping to at the least feature in a portion of the fixture. So based on this report, he would be open to coming off the bench and playing in some minutes, which would be a plus for him as it would help in dusting off any rust from the lengthy layoff in play. More so, all signs are pointing for him to be close to 100% for PSG’s UEFA Champions League group stage fixture against RB Leipzig next week.

PSG is also hoping to have both Marco Verratti and Mauro Icardi back for the contest against Monaco. They have been dealing with their own respective injuries but each did return to training over the current international break.

PSG could finally field its best starting 11 for a fixture soon.
