Riyad Mahrez could feature in the Community Shield for Manchester City, having been given the green light to return to training after an ankle knock.
City’s club-record signing was forced off in the 28th minute of the 3-2 International Champions Cup victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday following a tackle from Chris Richards.
The Algeria international was pictured on crutches and wearing a protective boot on his return to Manchester.
However, the club have confirmed Mahrez sustained no “significant damage” and he may be available to Pep Guardiola to face Chelsea at Wembley.
A City statement read: “Riyad Mahrez has been given the all-clear to return to training later this week after picking up an ankle knock.
“A scan [on Monday] has revealed no significant damage, and he could be available for selection for this weekend’s Community Shield against Chelsea.”
