Neymar reveals when he will return from injury

Man Utd target Neymar confides in old Barcelona pals over shock £345m summer move Neymar says he needs 'about a month' before he can return from fractured metatarsal

Speaking to Brazilian television channel TV Globo, Neymar said: "I need about a month, but it is healing well".

Neymar has been out of action since he broke a metatarsal bone in his foot on February 25.

Germany worldwide Draxler rounded out the demolition, firing home via a deflection as PSG clinched the title at home for the first since 1994 while shattering Monaco's 17-match unbeaten run.

Paris Saint-Germain reclaimed the Ligue 1 title this evening courtesy of a 7-1 drubbing of league rivals Monaco at the Parc des Princes.

Former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel has reportedly been lined up as Emery's replacement, with the club looking to progress after two years of treading water. "Perhaps he'll have time to play a few matches before the end of the season", Emery said.

PSG's form has not really been affected by Neymar's absence.

Leonardo Jardim's young team caused an upset in winning the title last term, but PSG responded with significant investment in the form of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and have been in charge for the majority of the campaign, ultimately regaining their crown in emphatic style with five games to spare.

Monaco, who were humbled 3-0 by PSG in the League Cup final, got off to a good start but the home side had the first clear chance in the 10th minute when Cavani volleyed just wide from Dani Alves's cross.

PSG started the second half cautiously and Monaco seemed to be pushing for a comeback but Di Maria fired home from Pastore's cross to kill all hope for Monaco.

Even if he is deemed fit again, it remains to be seen if he will want to take any risk before teaming up with the Brazilian national team to prepare for the World Cup.

Monaco ended PSG's string of four consecutive league titles last season with an improbable domestic triumph.
