Neymar will have surgery on a fractured toe in his right foot and could be out for up to three months, an estimate that would take the Brazil striker right up to the World Cup.

The Brazilian has now left hospital following the surgery and will begin his rehabilitation with Brazil and PSG physiotherapist Rafael Martini.

The 26-year-old has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances for PSG since joining from Barcelona for £200m last summer.

The Ligue 1 side next play Real Madrid on March 6, where they need to overcome a 1-3 deficit in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 encounter.

The World Cup starts on June 14 in Russian Federation.

"He will be re-evaluated in around six weeks in order to specify a possible date when he can return to training".

Lesnar to exit WWE, will make UFC comeback
Of course, whether or not Brock Lesnar makes a return to the UFC octagon will involve a lot of things to come together perfectly. Prior to this fight, Lesnar hadn't competed in five years when he lost to Alistair Overeem in the main event of UFC 141.

Earlier, Paris newspaper L'Equipe reported that PSG believe Lasmar lied about Neymar's condition.

Amid reports of tensions between PSG and Brazil's footballing authorities over Neymar's medical treatment, PSG insisted that it would be in charge of his recuperation.

Following the surgery, however, doctors stressed that there was no friction between PSG and Brazil's federation, the CBF.

Neymar can expect to be on crutches for around two to three weeks before he begins exercising the foot again.

Neymar may not be able to walk for a while, but he is already carrying the burden of a nation's expectations. This would put him uncomfortably close to the start of the World Cup on June 14, including missing two friendly warm-up games. "Lasmar is the team's best player right now".
