Pep Guardiola provides an update on Kevin de Bruyne's injury ahead of Real Madrid clash

Kevin De Bruyne, a renowned midfielder, has received an injury update from Pep Guardiola

This Saturday, when Manchester City hosts Leeds United, a team that is fighting for its relegation from the Premier League, they will be hoping to gain four points on championship rivals Arsenal.

Guardiola and his team have a short turnaround before playing Real Madrid in the decisive first leg of the Champions League semifinal on May 9. The only other injury concern for City is De Bruyne, who missed their previous two games due to a muscular problem.

Guardiola said that he is unsure if the 31-year-old will be able to play against Leeds but is optimistic that he will be back in time for the travel to Madrid. He exercised yesterday and did well. According to sources from BBC Sport, “we will decide after training today. At this point in the season, “losing or missing just one week or 10 days of training is not a problem.”

De Bryune, who has seven goals and 16 assists in Premier League play alone this season for City, had two goals in his last four meetings versus Los Blancos.

With Nathan Ake, Manuel Akanji, Jack Grealish, and record-breaker Erling Haaland all slated to start, Guardiola is anticipated to select a significantly different team than the one that took on Real Madrid in the semi-final matchup last season.
