The news comes as a blow for both Manchester City and La Roja, who would have counted on capitalising on his excellent recent form.

“He will be out two-and-a-half months or maybe three months. It is his metatarsal,” Guardiola added

Torres has been be ruled out of the crucial Champions League matches home and away to Club Brugge as well as the Manchester derby at Old Trafford against United.

If he’s unable to recover ahead of expectations, Ferran will miss the crucial upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Greece and Sweden.

Both are must-win if Spain want to avoid a play-off and qualify automatically for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
