Emery: PSG want to dedicate the victory to Neymar

But the latest chapter in the foot injury saga took a darker turn yesterday after the Brazil national team doctor dropped the bombshell that he would be out for up to three months after surgery.

According to Marca, the couple will not be alone at the Hospital Mater Dei in Belo Horizonte for the procedure.

The Brazilian will undergo surgery on a fractured toe in his right foot and could be out for up to three months.

"We want to give him the victory, we're facing the game with confidence, there are a lot of expectant people and I know we can do it", Emery said to reporters at his pre-match press conference.

Unai Emery has defended Paris Saint-Germain's communication over Neymar's injury.

Brazilians' attention is entirely trained on the World Cup, where they have ambitions of walking away with a sixth title after the humiliation of crashing out 7-1 to Germany in the 2014 semi-finals on home soil - a match Neymar missed after picking up an injury in the last eight against Colombia.

Rodrigo Lasmar, quoted on the website of Brazilian newspaper O Globo, said the world's most expensive footballer was resigned to the lengthy lay-off. He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible.

"It would be very risky as it's a fragile bone in the foot which is hard to protect", Jean-Marcel Ferret, a former doctor with the French national team, told AFP. "Not only will Neymar have time to get back in shape but he'll return with a real desire to play football and to show his potential". The French side lost the first leg 3-1 in Madrid last month.

NEYMAR is receiving plenty of comfort from girlfriend Bruna Marquezine as he prepares to go under the knife.

He appeared to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes, immediately raising fears that the 26-year-old could miss the Champions League last 16, second leg against Madrid.

PSG also have other injury concerns, with key defender Marquinhos a doubt and forward Kylian Mbappe limping off in their French Cup 3-0 quarter-final win over Marseille on Wednesday. We tried to do the best for the player and the club. "He will be operated on in Brazil at the end of the week".

Neymar has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists for the Ligue 1 leaders this season.
