Neymar will require surgery on an ankle injury suffered last month and he is set to miss PSG’s crucial Champions League trip to Munich and the rest of the season.
On February 19, the Brazillian forward was forced to leave the pitch during PSG’s 4-3 home win over Lille.
The 31-year-old is expected to be back in training after three to four months after attending surgery in Doha before he can resume training.
However, Neymar who missed their opening group match against Serbia at the 2022 World Cup and 2019 Copa America has suffered a number of injury problems with his right foot over the past few years.
Neymar’s form this season has allowed him to have 23-goal involvement scoring 13 Ligue 1 goals and 10 assists for PSG.
This season’s hunt calls for the 11th French top-flight title as Christophe Galtier’s side (PSG) are eight points clear at the top of the table.
On Wednesday PSG takes on German side Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 second leg having a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.
