Man City captain Vincent Kompany nearing fitness: Belgian has had series of blood tests

The Manchester City captain, 30, suffered a thigh injury nine minutes into the Champions League semi-final clash away to Real Madrid in May.

It was the latest in a long list of cruel muscle injuries which wrecked large chunks of last season and forced Kompany out of Euro 16.

But City specialists now report that the damaged muscle is “clean” – although blood tests last week were still not perfect.

Kompany, though, is well on the road to full recovery and came through a midweek practice match behind closed doors without a problem.
