  • France international Mendy injured his knee in a tackle on Andros Townsend on Saturday

Benjamin Mendy will visit a knee specialist in Barcelona because Manchester City fear his injury is more significant than first thought.

The French full-back was substituted after 29 minutes of Saturday's 5-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Speaking before City's Champions League encounter with Shakhtar Donetsk, manager Pep Guardiola suggested Mendy, 23, might train later on Monday.

But the GBP52 million summer signing from Monaco did not appear with the squad.

The French international will travel to see Barcelona-based Ramon Cugat, a close friend of Guardiola, who treated City duo Vincent Kompany and Kevin de Bruyne last season.
