Injured DE BRUYNE doubtful for Barcelona & Man Utd clashes

The midfielder is facing four weeks on the sidelines, meaning he is likely to miss the trip to Camp Nou on October 19 and potentially the derby on October 26 Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne faces around a month on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

The Belgium midfielder limped out of City's 3-1 victory at Swansea City on Saturday afternoon after playing a part in two of the Blues' goals.
Pep Guardiola revealed after the match that De Bruyne would undergo scans on Sunday, and according to sources close to the player those initial tests have detected a muscle tear.
The 25-year-old is expected to travel to Barcelona on Monday for further tests and treatment, according to City Watch .
Vincent Kompany, De Bruyne's countryman, also spent time in Barcelona after picking up a thigh injury back in May, although Dr Eduardo Mauri, who helped treat the centre-back, is now at City having been brought to the club by Guardiola.
The upcoming international break has lessened the impact of De Bruyne's injury on City's fixture list, but he is unlikely to be fit to face Barcelona in the Champions League on October 19.
He will also miss games against Celtic and Tottenham in the next week, as well as the home clash with Everton on October 15.
A Premier League meeting with Southampton follows the Barca game at Camp Nou, before City travel to Old Trafford for the EFL Cup game against Manchester United on October 26.
