Paris Saint-Germain forward is expected to be out of action for up to three months after he undergoes surgery on his broken metatarsal, according to Brazil’s team doctor.

Rodrigo Lasmar, quoted on the website of Brazilian newspaper O Globo, said the world’s most expensive footballer has been resigned to the lengthy lay-off.

Neymar, 26, was carried off nine minutes from the end of his side’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday.

The former Barcelona star posted a picture on Instagram of himself wearing a protective boot on Monday, and it was later confirmed that he had suffered a broken metatarsal and a sprained ankle.

Remarkably, PSG manager Unai Emery denied reports that his star man was set for surgery on the problem and said he was ‘optimistic’ the forward would be available for next week’s Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

But appears the manger has been proven wrong and the Brazilian is indeed set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Lasmar said, according to O Globo:

“Neymar suffered a fracture to the fifth metatarsal, it is an important fracture in a foot bone.

“The operation will be in Belo Horizonte on Saturday morning, and the recovery takes from two and a half months to three months.

“Neymar is sad, but understands that he has no alternative now. He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible. We will do our best to get him ready as soon as possible.”

The lay-off means Neymar may miss the rest of the season with PSG, returning to fitness just weeks before Brazil’s World Cup campaign.
