"I need about a month, but it is healing well".

Brazilian PSG's footballer Neymar Junior attends the photocall for the 2018 American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR) Gala Sao Paulo in Sao Paulo Brazil on Saturday. Brazil opens its tournament against Switzerland on June 17 at the Rostov Arena.

The 26-year old, who fractured a metatarsal and sprained his ankle while playing for his club Paris St Germain on Feb 25, was asked when he would be ready.

In his absence, PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the last 16 in March.

In quotes reported on the club's Twitter feed, Emery said: "Neymar is close to a return after the latest tests". "We want to win and play well". He may have time to play for us before the end of the season. PSG have six titles and want to win this season to keep catching up and to ultimately become the most successful team in league history.

PSG are also still hoping to get to the final of the French Cup on May 8.

Although PSG are yet to clinch top spot in Ligue 1, a win against champions Monaco on Sunday would be enough to snatch back the title - and only then will Emery discuss his situation.

"The speed of recovery in the next 10 days will set the optimum date to start training without restriction".

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.

PSG paid Barcelona around £198million to take Neymar from Barcelona after the Brazilian had knocked them out of the Champions League in dramatic circumstances a few months before.
