City says the German, who limped off in the early stages of Sunday’s Community Shield win over Liverpool, will undergo surgery in the coming week.
City has not put a timetable on Sane’s return, but Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy have both spent months on the sidelines with similar problems in recent seasons. Reconstructive surgery for a torn ACL generally has a recovery time of several months.
City opens its Premier League title defense against West Ham on Saturday.
