While City included the 32-year-old in their Club World Cup squad, it was anticipated that he might travel as one of the captains. The team’s ambition is to secure a fifth trophy in 2023, aiming to clinch this particular prize for the first time in their history.

Although De Bruyne is unlikely to feature in the semi-final, given the final or third/fourth place play-off scheduled for Friday, his return to training serves as a positive indication. Manchester City, facing a recent dip in form with just one win in their last six Premier League games, welcomes the prospect of having their influential playmaker back in the mix.
