Neymar could make his first appearance of the season for Paris Saint-Germain against Toulouse on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed.
The Brazil international has made it clear that he is keen to leave Parc des Princes this summer, with former club Barcelona and Real Madrid both interested in bringing him back to Spain.
Despite negotiations with both clubs, no deal has yet been agreed, leaving Neymar in limbo with just over a week left until the European transfer window shuts on September 2.
Due to the ongoing doubts regarding his future, the 27-year-old has missed both of PSG’s opening two Ligue 1 matches as they look to be named French champions for the third successive season.
But Tuchel has now conceded that if in the next 24 hours it can be decided that Neymar will remain with the club then he will be in contention for Sunday’s clash.
“Neymar can play if the situation between him and the club is clear tomorrow,” he told a press conference. “He is ready to play, but today the situation is not clear, maybe it will be tomorrow.”
