    Injured PSG’s Neymar set to undergo surgery; will he miss the world cup?

    Paris St-Germain forward Neymar will have surgery on Saturday after fracturing a metatarsal and spraining an ankle during Sunday's Ligue 1 victory over Marseille.

    Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told BBC the 26-year-old will be out for up to three months but he expects Neymar to be fit in time for the World Cup in June.

    However the £200m world record signing will miss the rest of PSG's season.

    PSG coach Unai Emery initially said Neymar had a "small chance" of facing Real Madrid in the Champions League next week, before Neymar's father said he would be out for "six to eight weeks".

    Lasmar, in quotes reported by O Globo and cited by BBC, said: "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 he has no alternative now. He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible".

    The striker joined PSG from Barcelona last August and has scored 29 goals in 30 games.

    PSG are 14 points clear of second-placed Monaco in the league and on 6 March will host Champions League holders Real Madrid, trailing 3-1 from the first leg.
