“The extent of his layoff depends on how well he responds to the rehabilitation programme overseen by the club’s medical staff.

“Everyone at City wishes Kevin a speedy recovery and we all look forward to seeing him back in blue soon.”

De Bruyne will hope to recover from the injury before Man City’s Premier League clash against Wolves this weekend.
