"--IANS/EFE"
Barcelona, July 8 (IANS/EFE) Spanish football club FC Barcelona says its doctor will be travelling to Brazil to check on Neymar's fitness.

During the official presentation of Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, the newest signing for the Catalans, Barcelona's director of football Andoni Zubizarreta talked about Neymar's injury, reports Efe.

We are in direct contact with the Brazilian confederation's doctors. We know he is at home and stable, said Zubizarreta.

He did want to comment on how long the striker is expected to take to get well because this is not a common injury and so it's not easy to say but Neymar will be given all the time he needs to recover.

Brazil's Neymar fractured his third vertebra during a clash with Colombia's defender Juan Zuniga in the World Cup quarterfinal Friday.
