Manchester City striker Ferran Torres suffered a minor right ankle while on international duty with Spain, the Premier League club said on Thursday.

City did not give Torres time to return and said they would continue to try for Manchester.
“City’s first-team scorer, who scored two goals in the UEFA Nations League semifinals in Spain against Italy and then again in the final against France, has taken a step back. He has returned to Manchester for a trial and will continue to be monitored,” the club said. words.
Spanish journalists say they could be out of work for six weeks. City beat Burnley in the league on Saturday.
