Almost fit Neymar return to Paris boosts World Cup hopes

Neymar flew to Brazil at the end of February to be operated of a fracture of the fifth metatarsus in his right foot, suffered on February 25 in a match against the Olympique of Marseilles.

Senegal striker Konate levelled with a terrific low finish into the corner just two minutes after half-time.

In a recent interview with RMC Sport, Cavani spoke out on the matter and suggested that he and Neymar have put the issue behind them.

"I have a contract until 2020", Cavani said.

Paris Saint-Germain marksman Edinson Cavani says there is now an "understanding" with teammate Neymar following their infamous fallout.

"The most important thing is to continue to sign great players who want to win things or have already won things and are experienced - the rest will come on its own".

But Neymar's first season in the French capital has not always gone smoothly, the Brazilian repeatedly clashing with Cavani over set-piece duties as he sought to boost his goal tally. "The team's superiors have taken a decision and I have respected it". If I have team-mates who can win individual accolades, then I will do everything to help them.

And a reported miscalculation in revenue from various sponsorship deals has put the club in danger of failing to meet the requirements unless they balance the books with Di Maria potentially one of the players who is sacrificed.

Brazil global Neymar is still aiming to return to action by May 17, meaning he could feature in the final match of the season at Caen.
