However, subsequent tests revealed the extent of the striker’s injury, which is likely to keep him out of a string of big games for both club and country. City face a Manchester derby at Old Trafford plus a Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain within the next six weeks, while Spain play World Cup qualifiers against Greece and Sweden next month.
