Neymar to begin training next week, return to Paris Saint-Germain in April

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has revealed that he will return to training next week before he finally re-joins Thomas Tuchel's squad in a fortnight as he continues to recover from his latest injury.

Spotted speaking with Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, who he knows from his time with Barcelona, the €222 million man found time during the Ligue 1 leaders' 3-1 win over OM in Le Classique to fill the Spaniard in on his latest news.

"Next week, I will return to training," Neymar is recorded saying at Parc des Princes.

"Yes, I will be back on the pitch then and I will re-join the squad in 2 weeks -- I have already undergone the exams."

PSG won through a Kylian Mbappe strike and Angel Di Maria brace, while Steve Mandanda was sent off for handball in the second half -- to Neymar's delight -- and could now seal their latest Championnat crown shortly after the international break.

UEFA confirmed last week that an investigation into Neymar's outburst on social media after Manchester United eliminated PSG from the Champions League has been launched.
