PSG’s Neymar out for about 10 weeks with foot injury

Neymar: PSG forward out of Manchester United Champions League tie with broken metatarsal

Neymar is expected to be sidelined for about 10 weeks with a right foot injury, ruling the Paris Saint-Germain striker out of the UEFA Champions League matchup against Manchester United.

"After detailed analysis by specialists, a consensus was reached of a conservative treatment of Neymar's injury to the fifth right metatarsal", the French champions said.

Neymar suffered the injury in PSG's 2-0 French Cup win against Strasbourg last week, and his coach Thomas Tuchel had already all but ruled the 222-million-euro forward out of the first leg against United at Old Trafford on February 12.

"Informed of this recommendation, Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian worldwide striker agreed with this protocol".

A PSG statement said: 'Paris Saint-Germain wishes to show its player all his affection, his strongest support and his greatest encouragement to overcome this injury, with the courage and determination he has always shown'.

Anthony Davis tells Pelicans he won't re-sign
The only way Boston could land Davis before the February 7 trade deadline is if it deals Irving. According ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski , Davis has asked the New Orleans Pelicans to trade him.

Neymar damaged the same foot towards the end of last season and battled to be fit for Brazil's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, where he looked short of fitness during the group stages.

If PSG survives and advances, Neymar could return for the next stage of Europe's top club competition.

The 30-year-old World Cup victor has been on the periphery of the first-team picture under Unai Emery this season, with reports suggesting the new manager does not trust him in bigger, more physical contests.

Still, it won't be easy for the Parisians against high-flying United sans the 26-year-old, not with the Red Devils on a 8W-0L-1D run since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager last month.

The report suggests that PSG wanted to take the World Cup victor to the French capital as cover for injured star Neymar, but the German midfielder has turned the opportunity down.
