Neymar has claimed he is hopeful that he will be fit in time to feature in the Champions League quarter-finals should Paris-Saint Germain eliminate Manchester United.
The Brazil international’s plans look a lot more plausible after PSG’s 2-0 victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday, meaning the reigning French champions seem set to qualify for the tournament’s last eight.
They managed that scoreline without their talismanic number 10, who has been struggling with a metatarsal injury he picked up in last month’s Coupe de France victory against Strasbourg.
However, Neymar wants to return to the fold as quickly as possible and think he will be fit in time for the next round of Europe’s elite competition despite originally being ruled out for 10 weeks.
“It's getting better,” the attacker told YouTube show Fui Clear.
"We have already done several treatments, some procedures in order to improve it as quickly as possible and we are happy with the progress and with how things are going.
"I can't wait to do what I love to do the most in my life which is to play football. It's eight to 10 weeks [recovery period] - that's what we imagine, so I think 10 weeks at most. We have worked to accelerate the process."
