The Barcelona-based specialist also helped City teammates Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy recover from cruciate knee ligament injuries.

On that occasion, De Bruyne missed 10 weeks of action - including the 2015-16 EFL Cup final - and City's title challenge subsequently collapsed.

Now City will be without their Belgian star for a long period, but the emergence of Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden, along with the ever-present David Silva, will mean there is plenty of cover during his absence.

And The Times report that De Bruyne himself had a worrying reaction after he picked up the injury in training.
