Paris-Saint Germain have confirmed Neymar has suffered a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle.

Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Neymar would miss the Champions League clash with Real Madrid on March 6 due to the injury he picked up in their 3-0 win over Marseille.

The Brazil international was stretchered off in tears after rolling his ankle following a challenge from Bouna Sarr which left him fearing his season would be over.

With rumours that Neymar is unsettled at PSG, could Robert Lewandowski leave Bayern Munich and be his replacement? Former Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow believes a transfer merry-go-round could begin.

Following the injury confirmation, Neymar will be expected to miss the return leg against the reigning European Champions next week, but should recover before the end of the season and the World Cup.

Wayne Rooney suffered a similar injury in May 2006 playing for Manchester United against Chelsea and was able to return to fitness after six weeks - in time for England's World Cup campaign in Germany.
