Neymar has been ruled out of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League clash with Manchester United due to a foot injury. The Brazil star cannot put any weight on his right foot and will miss the last-16 first-leg clash at Old Trafford on February 12, according to RMC Sport.
PSG host United in the second-leg on March 6 but it is unknown whether Neymar will be fit.
Neymar limped off the pitch in tears after suffering a metatarsal injury in his right foot in the French Cup win against Strasbourg on Tuesday.
The ex-Barcelona ace, who also fractured a metatarsal on his right foot in February, has been in stunning form this season for the Ligue 1 leaders having scored 20 goals and made ten assists.
The 26-year-old underwent surgery for the injury last year and fought his way back to feature for his country at the World Cup in Russia.
Midfield stalwart Marco Verratti is already on the sidelines as he nurses his own ankle injury after picking up the knock against Guingamp last time out.
PSG boss Thomas Tuchel admitted after the clash that he feared things weren’t looking good.
He said: “It’s too early to say for Neymar. He has started getting treatment, we need to wait until next week. “His treatment will depend on how the injury develops in the next few days. The fact Neymar and Marco are injured is a sad situation for us. “We need to find solutions, collectively, so that we carry on winning.”

According to Belgian outlet, HLN, Chelsea wants at least £98.5million for Hazard after rejecting Real Madrid’s opening offer for the 28-year-old.
Hazard is a huge admirer of Zidane as a coach and named the French legend as his idol growing up.
