One of Manchester City’s top players is Kevin de Bruyne.
He was the player in Europe this season with the most assists, and his skill helped his team win the Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup.
The footballer was replaced by Phil Foden in the Champions League final when the striker sustained an injury and had to exit the game.
After a few days have passed since this crucial match, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have received the worst possible news.
According to the Daily Mail, De Bruyne’s ailment is pretty significant.
The doctor anticipates his recovery to take more than three months due to his tendon tear and several muscular issues.
He’ll probably miss the first several games of the upcoming season.
Kevin De Bruyne will also miss the Community Shield against Arsenal and the European Super Cup against Sevilla, two games that are of utmost importance.
This is a serious setback for boss Pep Guardiola, who will now need to find a replacement for the Belgian striker.
Manchester city do not want to speed up Kevin de Bruyne’s Recovery
According to the Daily Mail, the Manchester City doctor is aware that Kevin de Bruyne, 32, needs time to heal in order to play at a high level next season and does not want to put pressure on him during that process.
