Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola is gradually feeling the heat before the start of the Premier League on Friday after it was confirmed that Leroy Sane has copped a ligament injury.
The injury comes after a summer of speculation over the 23-year-old’s future, with Bayern Munich having been heavily linked with the player.
Sane has been offered a new contract at the Etihad Stadium but has not yet signed. He has two years left on his present deal.
City have not put a timescale on the player’s return but Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy have both had seasons ruined by similar problems in recent years.
A statement from the club read: “Leroy will have surgery in the coming week.
“Manchester City will provide Leroy with all the support and guidance he needs, and everyone connected with the Club wishes him a quick and full recovery.”
