The most expensive footballer in the world Neymar (26) to recover will take about three months after the fracture in his right foot, said the Brazilian team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.
The Brazilian was playing for the PSG last weekend in the derby of the French Ligue 1 against Marseille with a bare finger and stretched the right-leg wrist to go home to Brazil.
Dr. Lasmar examined him and decided that he had to undergo an operation to be performed on Saturday in Belo Horizonte.
“The recovery time will depend on how the operation will last, but we are currently estimating it will last between two and a half months. We think it will have time to prepare for the World Cup,” Lasmar said.
Recall, Brazil will play the first match at the World Cup in Russia on June 17 against Switzerland.
Otherwise, Neymar scored 28 goals with 16 assists this season.
