Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian striker Neymar arrived in Spain yesterday for treatment on his injured foot.

The Barcelona player was spotted on crutches as he arrived at Barcelona airport to continue treatment on his foot injury.

The 27-year-old injured his metatarsal in the French Cup win over Strasbourg last month and will miss Paris Saint-Germain’s crucial Champions League last-16 clash with Manchester United.

Wearing a black hoody, hat, and sunglasses, Neymar hobbled past reporters before being guided through the airport.

The Brazilian had initial scans at PSG’s training base but flew out to Spain last week for further assessments and is set to continue his treatment in Barcelona.

A team of medical experts concluded that he does not require surgery on the problem but is set to be sidelined for the next 10 weeks.

Neymar understandably didn’t appear to be in the mood to be interviewed as he hopped out of his black taxi on Friday afternoon.

This will mean Neymar will miss PSG’s first leg against the Red Devils at Old Trafford next Tuesday and the return leg on March 6.

He will also miss key Ligue 1 clashes against Lyon, St Etienne and Montpellier in the next month.

PSG were also dealt a fresh injury blow this week after Marco Verratti experienced more issues during training.
