Man City MF De Bruyne injured in training

According to the Daily Mirror, De Bruyne sustained a knee injury on Wednesday in training during an outdoor session.

A club statement said the full extent of the injury is not yet known but the Belgium global was undergoing tests.

De Bruyne and his City teammates attended the premiere of a documentary series about the team hours after the midfielder injured his right knee in a training session.

The 27-year-old, who was seen on crutches at The Printworks in Manchester City centre, is expected to fly to Barcelona for further tests with Dr. Ramon Cugat, a specialist who treated him when he suffered a knee injury in January 2016.

Should De Bruyne be ruled out for two months as has been reported, City will be without him for Premier League games against Huddersfield Town, Wolves, Newcastle United, Fulham, Cardiff City and Brighton and Hove Albion, plus the first couple of Champions League group stage fixtures.

"We don't just rely on one player".

Gundogan, who can expect plenty of game time in De Bruyne's absence, hopes the Belgian can be back soon.

The Belgian was one of, if not the, most important players for Pep Guardiola's Citizens last season as he racked up 12 goals and 21 assists on their way to a 100-point campaign in the Premier League. "Obviously it's a big loss but we've got more than enough cover".

Due to being given three weeks off following the World Cup he did not play a role in the Community Shield win against Chelsea but came on for a cameo role of half an hour in the 2-0 opening Premier League victory over Arsenal last Sunday.
