Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne has arrived in Barcelona this afternoon for treatment and further tests on a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out of action for around a month.
City Watch exclusively revealed on Sunday that De Bruyne will miss around four weeks of action and that he was due to fly to Barcelona on Monday to see a specialist.
Now, courtesy of Twitter user @rafavelja, there is a photo of the 25-year-old arriving in Barcelona for treatment.
De Bruyne will miss at least two Premier League games (Spurs, Everton) and two Champions League games (Celtic, Barcelona) unless of an unexpected early recovery. Possible return matches include Manchester United in the EFL Cup or the West Brom league game on October 29. The fear for City is that further tests will rule KDB out for even longer, but the initial prognosis was a four-week absence.
De Bruyne already has four Premier League assists and two goals this season, and his absence comes at a bad time for the Blues. However, with the likes of Silva, Sterling, Nolito, Navas and Sané to call upon, City have plenty of depth in the attacking midfield area.
Club captain Vincent Kompany also arrived in Barcelona today for further treatment on his latest injury.
