The world’s most expensive footballer was operated on in Belo Horizonte by the Brazil national team doctor to repair the fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle he suffered in last weekend’s French Ligue 1 match against Olympique de Marseille.

“He will be re-evaluated in around six weeks in order to specify a possible date when he can return to training.” CBF said. (Reuters/NAN)
