Fears are growing about Neymar's fitness for the World Cup.

Brazil's national team doctor has said the Paris St Germain forward would be out for up to three months after undergoing surgery on his broken metatarsal, according to reports.

Neymar was carried off nine minutes from the end of the 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday and PSG announced on Wednesday evening that the 26-year-old would go under the knife in Brazil this week.

Brazil doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, quoted on Brazilian newspaper O Globo's website, said the former Barcelona marksman faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after the operation.

According to O Globo, Lasmar: "Neymar suffered a fracture to the fifth metatarsal, it is an important fracture in a foot bone.

"The operation will be in Belo Horizonte on Saturday morning, and the recovery takes from two-and-a-half months to three months.

"Neymar is sad, but understands that he has no alternative now. He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible.

"We will do our best to get him ready as soon as possible."

The lay-off means Neymar could be set to miss the rest of the Ligue 1 season before returning in time to join up with Brazil ahead of the World Cup in Russia, which gets under way on June 14.
