Leroy Sane is facing a lengthy lay-off after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage, Manchester City have announced.
The German winger, who limped off in the early stages of Sunday's Community Shield win over Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday, is to undergo surgery in the coming week.
The injury comes after a summer of speculation over the 23-year-old's future, with Bayern Munich having been heavily linked with the player.
Sane has been offered a new contract at the Etihad Stadium but has not yet signed. He has two years left on his present deal.
City have not put a timescale on the player's return but Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy have both had seasons ruined by similar problems in recent years.
A statement from the club read: "Leroy will have surgery in the coming week.
"Manchester City will provide Leroy with all the support and guidance he needs, and everyone connected with the Club wishes him a quick and full recovery."

Former England defender Micah Richards has announced his retirement from football.
Richards, 31, has been forced to hang up his boots due to a chronic knee problem, his former club Manchester City have announced.
"The City fan favourite and Premier League winner announced his decision after losing a lengthy battle with an injured knee," the Premier League champions said on their official website.
"His football journey, that took him from Oldham to City, abroad to Italy and back to Aston Villa, ends at the age of 31."
Richards, raised in Leeds, joined City from Oldham aged 14 and after making his first-team debut three years later he went on to make more than 175 appearances for the club.
He moved on to Aston Villa following a loan spell at Fiorentina in 2015, but due to injury was restricted to only 26 appearances for the West Midlands club.
When Richards made his only senior England appearance in November 2006 against Holland, he became the Three Lions' youngest-ever defender, breaking the record previously held by Rio Ferdinand.
