The Brazilian suffered a hairline foot fracture in PSG's 3-0 win over Marseille in February, and has been sidelined ever since.

"I'm still about a month away", he told TV Globo. Brazil opens its tournament against Switzerland on June 17 at the Rostov Arena.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lassana Diarra admits that his side want to wrap up the Ligue 1 crown as quickly as possible with a win over AS Monaco at the weekend.

However, PSG submitted to Real's supremacy in the last 16 of the Champions League, and there have been rumours about Neymar not being happy at the Parc des Princes.

"He had a good medical examination and, when he gets here, I'm sure he will want to play".

PSG manager Unai Emery gave an even more confident outlook on his talisman's fitness, revealing that he hopes to have Neymar back for a few games before the season ends.

Earlier, Emery had indicated Neymar was on his way back and could rejoin the team before the end of the season.

"The speed of recovery in the next 10 days will set the optimum date to start training without restriction".

The last round of games in the Ligue 1 season are scheduled for May 19, but Neymar faces a race against time to play any part.

Brazil will also face Costa Rica and Serbia in their group, as they target winning a sixth World Cup, four years after the nightmare of their 7-1 loss to Germany in the semi-finals on home soil.
