City manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday that Kompany, who has knee ligament damage, has visited a specialist in Barcelona who advised on a previous injury sustained by the defender.
Guardiola said the specialist agreed with the prognosis of City's doctors, and that Kompany will be out for four to six weeks.
Kompany is estimated to have had 35 separate injuries since joining City in 2008, keeping him out for a total of about 2 1/2 years.
