Neymar: Paris St-Germain's injured forward out for 'six to eight weeks'

Report | Neymar to miss 2 months after surgery

Paris St Germain manager Unai Emery has dismissed reports that forward Neymar will undergo surgery for a fractured metatarsal and said the Brazilian could play against Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.

PSG released a statement on Monday night confirming Neymar had suffered a "fissure of the fifth metatarsal" and a "sprain of the right ankle".

Asked if PSG was pressured by Brazil in its dealing with Neymar's injury, Emery said his team remains his priority. There is a small chance for Neymar to be able to play against Real Madrid - we have to be patient.

"You need discussions with the doctor, the player, his entourage. I watched the game live and I hope Neymar's injury is nothing risky", he added. He is always the first one to want to play in every match.

According to Globo Esporte, the Brazil worldwide will undergo surgery to treat the injury that will take three months to recover, meaning he would only return to first-team action in May, one month before the World Cup begins.

She is also one of the first women to compete in five Olympics, along with Kelly Clark, who is also in Pyeongchang. The Americans held the fastest time in the semifinals, allowing them to start on the front row for the finale.

But Emery has provided a welcome injury boost for the French giants, claiming Neymar could yet be fit to face Los Blancos.

"I believe Madrid will go through, they are in a strong position", Aguero told reporters after Sunday's League Cup final.

Neymar has been in scintillating form for PSG this season, scoring 29 goals in 30 games since moving from Barcelona in a €222m deal last summer. We talk often and it's important that he's at the top of his game, in the best shape possible.

This is a major setback to PSG as they have it all to do in the second leg having lost 3-1 at the Bernabeu two weeks ago.

PSG has advanced to the knockout stage of the Champions League in each of the last six seasons but never made it past of the quarterfinals.
