Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar will reportedly miss the second leg of his side's UEFA Champions League round-of-16 clash against Real Madrid next Tuesday due to an ankle injury.

"Complementary examinations performed this day (ultrasound and CT) confirmed antero external sprain of the right ankle but also the associated existence of a fissure of the fifth metatarsal", PSG said.

"For Neymar there has been no decision to have an operation", said Emery, denying an earlier report in the Brazilian press that the world's most expensive player would go under the knife to fix the cracked bone in his foot.

"It is true that, today, the chances of Neymar being ready [to face Real Madrid] are smaller than they were last Sunday [after the Marseille match]".

"I do not think it influences next week's game".

Neymar looks set to miss the second leg of the Champions League tie between PSG and Real Madrid, but Zinedine Zidane insists he's not happy about it.

"Neymar is the first who wants to play every game, for Real Madrid, he is very focused".

Globo Esporte were first to report on Tuesday morning that the Brazilian worldwide would miss two months of football, threatening his participation in PSG's Ligue 1 and Champions League campaigns, plus his country's preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"No, I don't like it when players get injured", Zidane told reporters on Monday at a news conference ahead of Madrid's La Liga trip to Espanyol on Tuesday. "I talked to the doctors and we're yet to make a decision".

The capital club lead the league standings by 14 points after winning 3-0 on Sunday night, with Neymar setting up a fine third goal for strike partner Edinson Cavani.

"It is false [the report]", Emery said. PSG has been dominating the French league but has failed to get past the Champions League quarterfinals, losing in the round of 16 a year ago following a 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Barcelona in the second leg.

Scoring a total of 26 goals and laying off another 16 for his teammates, Neymar was having just the kind of stellar season many would have expected for him to challenge for the Ballon d'Or, France football's annual award for the best footballer in a year.

Rooney, who had sustained a similar injury while playing for England as a teenager at Euro 2004, fractured the fourth metatarsal in his right foot during Manchester United's defeat at Chelsea in April 2006, but made an impressive recovery in time for the World Cup finals in Germany.
