Brazilian midfielder Gabriel Moscardo, following his medical examination with Paris Saint-Germain before his transfer from Brazil was confirmed by the French champions, is set to undergo foot surgery. This news, however, will not affect his transfer to PSG.

The surgery has been deemed as needed by the medical staff of PSG following an examination of the player's condition and fitness. Moscardo is expected to be sidelined for the next three months.

UOL Esporte, a Brazilian media outlet, reported on Monday that Moscardo will travel to Qatar to undergo surgery at the renowned Aspetar Clinic linked to PSG.

The surgery, described as a bone graft operation, is considered relatively straightforward by PSG and shouldn't pose any trouble or go wrong in any possible way. Despite the required surgery, the financial aspects of the transfer between PSG and Corinthians will remain the same, with the Brazilian club not putting the deal in peril or wanting to re-discuss its terms.

Further details emerged from SBT Rio, another source, discussing the medical examination of the player and the results, stating "concerns arose about a potential tumor in Moscardo's foot." However, after urgent consultation with a specialist, it was determined that surgery was necessary but "there was no tumor."
