He was down to injury and missed the Copa America for Brazil during the summer, and AS reports that Barcelona is increasingly concerned about how much football he has missed.
The Medical Staff of Barcelona is not convinced that a sprained ankle would not have ruled the attacker out of the entire tournament in Brazil and that the injury is more than what was reported and has something to do with a broken metatarsal that has plagued the Brazil international over the past two seasons.
The Camp Nou medicals are worried that he could have sustained a re-occurrence injury that could easily resurface unless Neymar undergoes an operation which would see him ruled out for a significant length of time.
