According to the report, Neymar is scheduled to gradually increase his training load in the coming days. As a result, there’s a progressive return to collective training planned for the following week. This step marks an important milestone in his recovery process.
In further positive news, Neymar is set to travel with the team for PSG’s Japan tour. This update from the French outlet indicates that he is nearing full fitness.
It remains to be seen whether he will participate in matches during the tour. However, his inclusion highlights the club’s confidence in his progress and potential involvement in upcoming competitive fixtures.
With Lionel Messi gone and Kylian Mbappé having an uncertain future at PSG, the capital might have to lean on Neymar if he stays, as rumors link him to Chelsea.
