PSG, who can claim the title with a win over Monaco on Sunday, will be without Neymar until the latter days of the season while the Brazil star recovers from foot surgery.

Neymar even used stylish black crutches to suit his all-black attire for the 8th Annual amfAR gala, reported The Sun.

The news will be welcomed by Brazil coach Tite as it means he will have plenty of time to prepare for the World Cup, which kicks off in Russian Federation on Jun 14. The couple rekindled their romance in December previous year, after several break-ups and have been inseparable ever since.

The 26-year-old forward was injured February 25 in a French league game against Marseille. "It is all according to plan", the Brazilian said. I can not walk freely without the shoe, but I am in treatment, I am working out at the gym too.

The striker is widely expected to be on Brazil's final squad list that will be announced on May 14 in Rio de Janeiro by coach Tite.

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.

"I don't like to watch football, believe it or not. I like to play, to be on the pitch", he said. I don't yet know when he will return. He has no vanity. "Be yourself. Play your football and do not be intimidated", he told me.

"But the reports which came out were much bigger, I think because that's what sells".

Monaco started with plenty of energy but nearly fell behind inside nine minutes when Cavani collected at the back post, only to drag his volley across the face of goal and wide.

"Of course we had a certain friction, but we solved that soon afterward. We have to continue until the end of the season and then see what will happen". We're two great players, but we're also people and we had to resolve the personal side of things.
