Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is on the road to recovery ahead of schedule from a knee injury and harbors hope to return to action against Manchester United in the Premier League in November.
The Belgian sustained the injury in the course of training last month and is keen to hit the ground running after scoring 8 goals and providing 16 assists for City last season.
De Bruyne revealed that he could return to training next month as he has his eyes on a return ahead of the Manchester derby at the Etihad in November.
Whilst speaking at the launch of FIFA 19 on Thursday, De Bruyne said: “I still need three, four, five weeks, but I’m getting there”
“Hopefully I can be back soon, help the team, and perform well. I’m hoping to be back after the next international break. I think I will be back for the derby.”
Meanwhile, Manchester City are currently third on the log with 13 points and play Cardiff away this weekend.
