PSG's Neymar not given tax breaks to aid Barcelona move - French minister

PSG is now in Bordeaux to face Monaco in the finals of the French League Cup, a.k.a. the Coupe de la Ligue.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, who is convalescing in Brazil after surgery on his injured right foot, will be back "in two to three weeks", the club's coach Unai Emery said on Friday.

"I spoke with him this week, he's good, relaxed".

Spaniard Emery, who is only in his second season in charge at the Parc des Princes, is now relying on Saturday's Coupe de la Ligue final against Monaco to keep his hopes of a treble - and remaining in a job - alive. We spoke about the final.

Neymar suffered his injury while playing against Marseille on February 25 and returned to his native Brazil to receive treatment. "He's going to follow the game".

Neymar was initially expected to be out for up to three months. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had reportedly visited Neymar in Brazil in mid-March, mainly to squash rumours that the star striver would leave Paris at the end of the season.

The idea is to get people to actually open the envelopes instead of stuffing them in a drawer or the trash. Officials haven't said how many checks they're sending out or how many have been cashed.

Neymar is unlikely to be ready for the Coupe de France semi-final against Caen on April 18 but, should PSG qualify, the final on May 8 could be a realistic return date.

Right-back Thomas Meunier, who has played a bit-part role this season under Emery, said during global duty with Belgium he expects PSG to have a new coach for next season, while Angel Di Maria predicted "big changes" at the club.
