Paris Saint-Germain are facing the prospect of not having Neymar at their disposal until 2021.
This past weekend the Ligue 1 champions defeated Reims as the Brazilian returned to the team following a suspension, but he picked up a knock in that match which could rule him out of PSG's next match against Angers.
A more lengthy and serious absence from the team could come into play should he also be found guilty of racially abusing Marseille's Hiroki Sakai during the fiery Le Classique a few weeks ago.
In the latter stages of the match against Marseille, no less than five players were shown red cards, including Neymar, following a melee around the time of the final whistle.
Following the game, Neymar accused defender Alvaro of using racist language towards him, which has not been proved as of yet.
Now, the former Barcelona star finds himself as the accused, following alleged comments made towards Sakai in the same match, as well as homophobic language used towards Alvaro also.
The LFP Discipline Committee will meet this Wednesday to determine of Neymar is guilty, and if he is found so, he will be given a 10-match domestic ban which would see him miss the remaining Paris Saint-Germain matches in 2020.
The ball would only apply to matches domestically, however, with him still eligible to play in the Champions League.
