The Brazilian has missed Barca's last four games with an left foot injury he sustained in the Copa del Rey final loss to Real Madrid.
But after a month on the sidelines, he is now hopeful of giving the Catalan club a boost ahead of their winner-takes-all clash this weekend.
"I'm in the final stretch in terms of recovery and I'll see if I can play (on Saturday) when I'm back to training," Neymar said in quotes reported by Marca.
If Barca triumph in their final game of the season at the Nou Camp, they will be crowned champions ahead of current leaders Atletico by virtue of a better head-to-head record, with the two teams drawing in their league meeting at the Vicente Calderon earlier this season.
Diego Simeone's men, who currently sit top of the standings by three points, need only avoid defeat for them to lift their first league title since the 1995-96 season.
"We're really ready for this," Neymar added. "Atletico have a great team, great players and will be hard to defeat, but we have no choice other than to go out and win."
