Kevin de Bruyne: Man City midfielder suffers knee injury in training

Kevin De Bruyne will undergo a scan tomorrow

City announced on Wednesday afternoon that De Bruyne was undergoing tests on his right knee after suffering an injury in training earlier that day.

De Bruyne was City's player of the season last term, scoring 12 goals and providing 21 assists as his side won the Premier League and EFL Cup.

The Belgium worldwide who starred in last season's Premier League title win is believed to have torn the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

Rumours started with publication City Watch and the news was eventually confirmed by the club itself.

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.

Longtime Manafort deputy Rick Gates admits embezzlement
Laporta said she had grown to distrust the information Gates was providing her, though she didn't know about the embezzlement. Kilimnik is a Russian-Ukrainian political consultant who was indicted in June on charges stemming from the Mueller probe.

This would be a huge blow to City's hopes of retaining their title, with De Bruyne having been so instrumental for the Citizens.

The 27-year-old reached the World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium in Russian Federation this summer and did not return to training until 6 August, a day after City's victory over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Clearly, he knows it's a serious injury and the official updates from City in the coming days will likely confirm the sad news.

He also has Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan, who were both brilliant in the 2-0 win over Arsenal on the weekend.
