The Portuguese star, who was heavily linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium, has turned his City career around within the last few months.
In City’s last few outings, he seems to have found his best form and is quickly becoming a crucial player for Guardiola once more.
Bernardo joined up with his national team after another star performance for his club at Old Trafford on Saturday, scoring the second goal of a 2-0 win.
The 27-year-old was absent from the Portugal squad as they trained for Portugal’s World Cup Qualifiers clash against Ireland on Thursday.
The report explained he’s suffering from ‘myalgia’, which will mean pain in a muscle group, although the exact issue hasn’t been reported.
Pep Guardiola as well as Manchester City fans will no doubt be keeping an eye on the situation as they hopes in every international break that the players return as fit as they were when they left.
The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from Man City fans.

I hate international breaks. A curse to us to say the least.— PrimusInterPares (@tushkev2245) November 9, 2021
We’re finished if he’s still injured once the international break ends— Dak (@DakMCFC) November 9, 2021
No one panic, he’ll be fine in a couple days— 🏴 (@okayokay12321) November 9, 2021
I’ve had myalgia before, it ain’t anything serious it’s just overly stressed muscles, it’ll recover in 2-3 days just by slapping an ice pack on where the pain is at— Zain4tw (@ali_saainMCFC) November 9, 2021
Send him back home please— ⚡️🇪🇸 (@SenorRodri) November 9, 2021
He deserves a 2 week rest.— Guardiolista (@MCFC_Vision) November 9, 2021
