Leaders PSG, who hold a comfortable 14-point advantage over second-placed Monaco with 74 points from 28 matches, struggled to break down a side haunted by relegation who defended deep and whose goalkeeper Erwin Zelazny made a string of saves. "The recovery time is between two and a half and three months", Lasmar said.

The Argentine was replaced by Dani Alves 10 minutes later as coach Unai Emery looked to keep key players fresh for Tuesday.

The Brazilian checked into the Mater Dei hospital in Belo Horizonte on Saturday for surgery, which Paris Saint-Germain have hailed as a success.

The rival demands from club and country appeared to erupt into tension just as he went under the knife, with Paris newspaper L'Equipe reporting Saturday that PSG believes Lasmar lied about Neymar's condition.

Runco says Neymar will be able to walk with crutches after two to three weeks, exercise while putting weight on his repaired foot after about 60 to 75 days, and then returning to training.

After a remarkable turnaround in fortunes since the shambolic exit in a 7-1 semifinal loss to Germany in the 2014 World Cup, Brazil are seen as top contenders in Russia.

The 26-year-old will stay in Brazil to recover from his injury in a mansion near Rio de Janiero, rather than return to Paris, per Gerard Couzens for Mail Online. For a fracture of this type, many times it is unnoticed and it ends up being much bigger, as has happened to Neymar, there is no doubt.

Providing an update on the world's most expensive player's condition, PSG revealed that they will wait until the middle of next month before determining when they can expect to have him back.

The injury has triggered concerns for the player's availability for this year's World Cup.

"I don't think fans like them exist anywhere else", she said.

Neymar broke his fifth metatarsal - the bone leading to his small toe - during a 3-0 drubbing of Marseille on February 25. Ahead of his arrival at the hospital he put up a picture on Instagram of himself in a wheelchair with his actress girlfriend Bruna Marquezine sitting on his lap and kissing him.
