Manchester City marvel of a midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will reportedly have to wait awhile, a long while, to begin his 2018-19 Premier League season. According to various reports in both England and Belgium, the PFA Player of the Year runner-up last season has now offered a pretty serious knee injury.

He could be out of action for up to three months. The club has yet to issue a statement confirming the news.


According to The Independent, De Bruyne suffered torn ligament damage to his right knee during training on Wednesday and that the full extent of the damage will not be known until he undergoes further tests.

Kevin De Bruyne missed nine weeks of the 2015-16 season due to a knee ligament injury, and obviously came back stronger than ever from that, so at least this set back isn’t anything he’s not familiar with. If he is out for an extended period of time, it could certainly be a game changer in regards to the Premier League title race.
