Now the question is whether the 26-year-old player can catch any of PSG's remaining season, and even what kind of shape he will be in at the start of Brazil's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation this June.

He has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG.

The Paris Saint-Germain player will begin his post-operation recovery at his mansion in Mangaratiba, along the southern coast of Rio de Janeiro state, local media reported.

The operation was declared a complete success.

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

However, the French club's medical staff and the Brazil national team agreed after further assessments that a surgery was the best option to alleviate the injury.

Lasmar said he expected Neymar to be out of action between two-and-a-half and three months and return just in time for the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Neymar will miss PSG's Champions League second leg against Real Madrid and Brazil's two warm-up friendlies later this month as he continues his recovery.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said this in a statement on Saturday. "In six weeks we will make a new evaluation", Rodrigo Lasmar said after performing the operation.

"There is absolutely no split, despite what was written".

"When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally", said Cristiano Nunes, the physiotherapist for Brazilian club Internacional.

The physician added, however, that he should be in "full form" by the time of the World Cup.
