Brazilians and fans of Neymar Jr will like this one.

The Paris St Germain forward has had a successful operation on his injured foot and ankle.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said this in a statement on Saturday.

The world’s most expensive footballer was operated on in Belo Horizonte by the Brazil national team doctor to repair the fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle he suffered in a recent French Ligue 1 match against Olympique de Marseille.

“He will be re-evaluated in around six weeks in order to specify a possible date when he can return to training.” CBF said.

Neymar is facing a race against time for the World Cup after being ruled out for three months by the club’s doctor on Thursday.

The injury will keep him out of the Champions League second-leg tie against Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes on 6 March but is set to be side-lined for much longer.
