PSG in surprise Arsenal transfer request to solve Man Utd Neymar problem

Neymar Jr

PSG face Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League but Neymar will not be back for either leg of the tie - the first leg is at Old Trafford on February 12 and the second in Paris on March 6.

It had been suggested the player may need surgery with Brazil keen to see the forward return to fitness in time for Copa America in Brazil this summer.

This means he will not feature for PSG in their Champions League round of 16 tie against Manchester United.

"After detailed analysis by the specialists, a consensus was reached of conservative treatment of Neymar Jr's injury to the fifth right metatarsal", the statement from the French champions read.

Neymar, now in his second season with PSG after moving from Barcelona in 2017 for a record $263 million transfer fee, was injured January 23 in a French Cup round of 16 match against Strasbourg. "As a result, Neymar is expected to return to the field within 10 weeks".

"Paris Saint-Germain sends its strongest support and encouragement to Neymar Jr to overcome this injury, with the courage and determination that the player has always shown".

Even with the interest of PSG - a giant of European football ready to hand him first-team action in Neymar's absence - Ozil will stay at Arsenal this week.

It is Neymar's third injury in the last 12 months.

A team of medical experts have concluded that Neymar has damaged the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

The report suggests that PSG wanted to take the World Cup victor to the French capital as cover for injured star Neymar, but the German midfielder has turned the opportunity down.

The 30-year-old World Cup victor has been on the periphery of the first-team picture under Unai Emery this season, with reports suggesting the new manager does not trust him in bigger, more physical contests.
