Le Bourget - Brazil star Neymar flew back into France on Friday to rejoin his club Paris Saint-Germain after an operation on a broken foot bone in March, a source at an airport outside Paris said.
Neymar is continuing his rehabilitation following the operation and his focus is firmly set on leading Brazil's World Cup challenge in Russia this summer.
The 26-year-old forward - at €220 million
the most expensive player in history - broke a bone in his right foot
on February 25 playing for PSG and has been in a race for fitness since
undergoing surgery in Brazil on March 3.
According to L'Equipe,
Neymar has been walking without crutches for two weeks but the star
striker said last week from his coastal mansion in Rio that he would not
play before a final medical on May 17, two days ahead of his club's
last match of the season.
PSG coach Unai Emery admitted he had not spoken to Neymar for 'some weeks'.
"He needs to be left alone to work with the physios, but we also want him to be with us for the last match," Emery said.
