PSG medical staff assessing Neymar

Paris Saint-Germain have sent medical staff to Brazil to assess the extent of Neymar's worrying ankle injury.

The 27-year-old striker ruptured a ligament in his ankle playing for Brazil in a 2-0 friendly win over Qatar in Brasilia.

The injury has ruled him out of the upcoming Copa America and now thoughts have already turned to whether or not he will be fit for the start of next season.

With that in mind, officials at the Parc des Princes have taken action, as they revealed in a club statement.

"On Friday 7 June, Paris Saint-Germain's first-team doctor, Dr Laurent Aumont and the club's Medical Board member and leading figure in sport medicine, Professor Gerard Saillant, travelled to Brazil," the it read. "The two doctors will define the player's rehabilitation process and recovery time as per the medical protocol, 72 hours after Neymar's injury."
