Manchester City loanee Jason Denayer looks set to be sidelined for around months, after picking up an injury against Sivasspor over the weekend.
The Belgian has impressed for the Turkish side since the arrival of Fatih Terim, but this setback has come as a blow to him, and Galatasaray.
The Turkish giants have officially confirmed on their website: ‘Jason Denayer has gone through on MRI and the club’s medical staff detected high-grade tear on his left upper back muscle group. The player’s treatment has already started.’
Milliyet expect the player to be sidelined for around two months, which will not only come as a blow to Galatasaray, but also Manchester City.
With the arrival of Aymeric Laporte in the last transfer window there will be further doubts over Denayer’s future at the Etihad, but if he’s not playing then he won’t be in the shop window ahead of the summer.
Denayer will also have his concerns as the injury may affect his chances of making the Belgium squad for this summer’s World Cup.
The 22 year old has a contract with Manchester City until June 2022, a great season in Turkey followed by World Cup appearances would be the perfect route to getting a good transfer fee.
