Neymar continued his return from injury when he reported back for Barcelona duty on Tuesday. 

The Brazilian was one of four South American players to return to The Nou Camp as part of Barcelona's pre-season plans. All four were given extra time off due to their involvement in the latter stages of the World Cup:

Neymar's return (as pictured above on his Instagram account) will be one fans watch most closely, as his tournament was ended by a back injury. 

He was expected to be out six weeks and is drawing closer to a return ahead of the new campaign.
