Nasri was carried off on a stretcher after a tackle by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in City’s 2-0 Premier League win at St James’ Park on Sunday. It was feared he could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Nasri tweeted saying “I suppose it’s kind of good news that I will be out around eight weeks,”.
“Thank you everyone for your kind words and overwhelming support.”
It means he is scheduled to miss at least 11 games, including matches against Tottenham, Chelsea, Barcelona and Manchester United. His first game back could be the second leg of the Champions League tie with Barca on 12 March.
Sorry lad, get well soonest.
