Neymar has been cleared to play for Barcelona’s by the team’s doctors after recovering from a broken vertebra in his back that he suffered during last month’s World Cup.

The forward is now available for selection and could feature in a friendly against Mexican club Leon at Camp Nou Stadium later on Monday.
The 22-year-old hurt his back in a collision with defender Juan Camillo Zuniga during Brazil’s 2-1 quarterfinal win over Colombia. That injury ruled him out of the semifinal against Germany, which Brazil lost 7-1.

Luis Suarez is set to debut for Barcelona during the match after the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that the striker could train and take part in friendlies despite his four month ban for biting a player at the World Cup.
