Neymar goes down in agony at the weekend

The PSG forward will reportedly miss the next two months with an ankle injury after being stretchered off in the Le Classique win over Marseille at the weekend.

Rafaella is turning 22 this year

Last season the Brazil star suffered a suspicious adductor injury while playing for Barcelona, while the previous two years he was suspended on both occasions on March 11.

The duo are practically attached at the hip and the Brazilian forward has a massive tattoo of her face on his upper arm.
