"What doesn't kill you make you stronger. I will be back better than ever see you in 3 months," Nasri wrote in an Instagram post alongside a picture of him looking pensive as he rested on a pair of crutches.
Nasri, 28, has not played for City since making a substitute appearance in their 5-1 Premier League defeat of Bournemouth on October 17.
He was thought to be closing on a return to action, but will now be out until February.
