Neymar has been ruled out for up to 10 weeks and will miss both legs of Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League round of 16 tie against Manchester United, the Ligue 1 club have confirmed.

The Brazil international was injured while playing against Strasbourg last Wednesday in the French Cup but will not require surgery.

A PSG statement read: "On Tuesday evening Paris Saint-Germain gathered together a group of world-renowned medical experts at the Ooredoo Training Centre to carry out a thorough review of the injury to Neymar Jr.'s right foot, sustained against RC Strasbourg in the Coupe de France round of 16 match on Jan. 23.

"After detailed analysis by the specialists, a consensus was reached of a conservative treatment of Neymar Jr.'s injury to the fifth right metatarsal. Informed of this recommendation, Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian international striker agreed with this protocol. As a result, Neymar Jr. is expected to return to the field within 10 weeks.
