Neymar practises his cheerleading at a carnival in Brazil as Paris Saint-Germain demand he return to support his team-mates for the blockbuster clash against Manchester United.
Neymar has been out of action since suffering a broken bone in his foot in mid-January and is still some way short of fitness.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to the Parc des Princes looking to overcome a 2-0 first-leg defeat.
Neymar will be on the sidelines again – and PSG bosses want him supporting his team.
Manager Thomas Tuchel says the time has now come for him to fly back to the French capital to be around the group before Wednesday’s Champions League game.
Tuchel said: “He is always doing good when he is back home in Brazil. It is important that we get Neymar back before United for support.
“It is also important in terms of him returning stronger than ever. I hope that he will be able to train with us after the United match.”
But that looked a long way from Neymar’s mind as he partied at a carnival in Salvador, Bahia, in the east of Brazil.
He was seen getting very close to a beautiful blonde woman.
Four personal security guards kept tabs on who the Brazilian was hanging round with and they decided who was allowed to get close to him.
Neymar also met up with his pal and world champion surfer Gabriel Medina.
Neymar confused his followers in a series of Instagram posts by saying he was in Bahia when he was actually in Rio.
The former Barcelona man then made it to the carnival, where he tried to go slightly incognito in a black Nike baseball cap.
