Neymar suffered a crack in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot and also sprained his ankle during Sunday's 3-0 win over Marseille.

"We're optimistic. For his participation in the match against Real, if I had to say yes or no, I would say yes".

On Sunday, Emery had voiced his hopes that the world's most expensive player would make it back in time for the blockbuster clash.

"Today I met with the doctor and he told me of the full extent of the injury and the decisions to be taken regarding his recovery".

Real Madrid will take a 3-1 first-leg lead to Paris next month as they aim to maintain their hopes of a third consecutive Champions League title and Zidane wants to see Neymar return in time for the fixture. "Neymar wants to play every game - he's focused on Real".

Before that game, PSG face Marseille once more in Wednesday's Coupe de France quarter-final and Troyes in the league on Saturday, with seemingly little prospect of Neymar being involved.

And Kylie only recently shared on Twitter that her daughter "looks just like me when I was a baby". As she held the tiny foot, Jenner said quietly, " Mommy's cute little toes".

However, he was clear in his dismissal of a report published by Brazilian newspaper Globo Esporte on Tuesday morning that claimed a decision had already been reached for Neymar to undergo an operation, and that he would be out until May.

Neymar has formed a lethal partnership with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani since moving to Paris in the summer of 2017, and Emery has been left with a huge task replacing the skilful Brazilian.

PSG revealed the extent of Neymar's injured foot late Monday without saying how long he will be sidelined.

The Brazil worldwide has scored 29 goals in 30 games since his arrival at the French capital.

Media reports said the world's most expensive player would undergo surgery and be out for two months, returning to action a month before this year's World Cup in Russian Federation. 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. Neymar is going to do some new tests.
