Neymar Jr has joined his Paris Saint-Germain teammates in China ahead of their French Super Cup clash against Ligue 1 rivals AS Monaco this weekend.
The French Champions will square up against Monaco in Shenzhen for the 23rd edition of the Trophee des Champions this Saturday in what will be Thomas Tuchel’s first competitive game in charge of the club.
Neymar was granted an extended summer vacation in order to properly recover ahead of the new season due to his participation at the World Cup in Russia. It’s uncertain if he will feature in the curtain raiser owing to fitness issues.
The Parisians will be hoping to do well in the Champions League after suffering an early exit in the Round of 16 stage to eventual winners Real Madrid last term.
With the likes of Mbappe in fine form, the Ligue 1 champions will be banking on the services of the duo to fire them to glory on all fronts in the new campaign.
Neymar won the Ligue 1 Player of the Year last season after managing an impressive 19 goals and 13 assists in just 20 league appearances.
PSG will resume their title defence against Caen on August 12.
