Having had successful surgery on his fifth metatarsal in his right foot, Neymar will be assessed by PSG in six weeks to determine when he will return to training.

Confederation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said the surgery took place Saturday at the Mater Dei Hospital in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte.

However, the 26-year-old is expected to recover in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation. A statement read, as quoted by the club's official website: "The operation consisted of the laying of a screw associated with a transplant fixed at the level of the lesion of the fifth metatarsal of the right foot".

Lasmar pointed out that physiotherapy would be done by Rafael Martino, who does work both for PSG and the Brazilian national team, which "shows the integration of all parties".

Gerard Saillant, the French doctor representing PSG at the hospital, said the timing of Neymar's return to full training could only be given at the six-week mark.
