The Brazilian last played for his club in February, but he could feature in the Trophee des Champions match on Saturday

Neymar has arrived in China ahead of Paris Saint-Germain's first competitive game under new coach Thomas Tuchel.

PSG face Ligue 1 rivals Monaco in the Trophee des Champions in Shenzhen on Saturday.

The former Barcelona made a stunning start to his PSG career, smashing 28 goals in 30 games following his move to Parc des Princes.

His club season, however, was cut short at a crucial period, in the middle of his club's Champions League last-16 exit at the hands of Real Madrid.

Neymar's last appearance for PSG came in February when he fractured a bone in his foot against Marseille.

The injury subsequently ruled Neymar out for the rest of the domestic season, but the 26-year-old recovered in time to travel to the World Cup with Brazil.

Tite's men were knocked out at the quarter-final stage by Belgium, however, with Neymar only able to contribute two goals at the tournament.

The world's most expensive footballer has a chance to move on this weekend, though, and he could be in line to face Monaco after PSG confirmed he has joined his team-mates in China.
