Neymar who has been out of action since suffering a broken bone in his foot in mid-January was found enjoying a downtime at the a carnival in Salvador, Brazil.

In the UEFA Champions League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side Manchester United will travel to the Parc des Princes looking to overcome a 2-0 first-leg defeat.

Neymar will be on the sidelines again – and PSG bosses want him supporting his team

Manager Thomas Tuchel says the time has now come for him to fly back to the French capital to be around the group before Wednesday’s Champions League game.

Tuchel said: “He is always doing good when he is back home in Brazil. It is important that we get Neymar back before United for support.

Neymar also met up with his pal and world champion surfer Gabriel Medina.

Neymar confused his followers in a series of Instagram posts by saying he was in Bahia when he was actually in Rio.

The former Barcelona man then made it to the carnival, where he tried to go slightly incognito in a black Nike baseball cap.
