Paris Saint-Germain have announced Neymar will return to France to continue his recovery from a groin injury, while team-mate Moise Kean has been released by Italy.
Neymar was called up by Brazil for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Uruguay despite missing PSG’s previous three matches.
However, the former Barcelona forward will not recover in time to feature for his country during this month’s international break, Brazil unwilling to take any risks with his fitness.
PSG confirmed on Friday that Neymar is to head back to the French capital as part of the “trust and collaboration” between the staff at the Ligue 1 champions and the Selecao.
Meanwhile, Kean is already back amid reports in the Italian media he is dealing with a muscle issue.
The striker, who has scored five goals in seven appearances since his arrival on loan from Everton, will miss Italy’s upcoming Nations League games against Poland and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
PSG are back in action on November 20, taking on Monaco in the league. They then host RB Leipzig four days later in the Champions League, having lost the reverse fixture in Germany.
