Brazilian superstar Neymar will undergo foot surgery on Saturday and his recovery will take as long as three months, the national team doctor said Thursday.
Neymar was stretchered off in Paris Saint Germain’s 3-0 Ligue1 victory over Marseille on Sunday.
Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, told Brazilian media after arriving with the player on a plane from Paris to Rio de Janeiro, “The (recovery) period will be around two and a half to three months.”
This finally kills any hope that the Brazilian international will be available when Real Madrid face PSG in France next week Tuesday.
The first leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash ended 3-1 in favour of Real Madrid in Spain.
