Neymar has reportedly confirmed he is ready to make his return for Paris Saint-Germain when they take on Monaco on Sunday, as PSG has struggled in-form in their last three games, the french side have drawn 1 and lost their last two games. The Brazilian has been out of action since January 23 with a broken metatarsal.
The Parisians will be eager to have their star back after three months out, particularly in light of their recent form. PSG are 13 points clear in Ligue 1, but they’ve missed three chances to seal the title in recent weeks. Although the title should still be comfortably within their grasp, Neymar’s return would provide a timely boost to help them turn around their recent struggles.
The 27-year-old bagged 20 goals and 11 assists in 23 appearances prior to his injury, and if he can resume that form in the weeks to come he can help PSG finish the season strongly. Even though Neymar is set to win another Ligue 1 title this season, the club have failed to perform in the UEFA Champions League in the past two seasons.
Former Brazil and Barca star Rivaldo says the 26-year-old must realise he made a mistake by leaving the Camp Nou. “Neymar made a mistake to leave, he must realise this,” Rivaldo told Onda Cero. “I would like to see him return to Barcelona and if not to the Camp Nou,
for the good of Spanish football I would want to see Real Madrid try to sign him. “My retirement? Now I can dedicate myself to enjoying my life with my family.”
