Raheem Sterling‘s season could be over after suffering a groin injury in the Manchester derby.

The 21-year-old winger looks set to miss 6-8 weeks, which would rule him out until mid-May. Manchester City’s last match of the Premier League season is May 15.

Sterling has not lived up to his $75 million price-tag after moving to Manchester from Liverpool last summer, but he is still an important part of City’s squad as they push for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

City has also put a heavy focus on the Champions League, facing off against Paris Saint-Germain in the quarterfinal, with Sterling now out for both of those legs.

If Sterling does miss two months of play, his status for the England squad heading into EURO 2016 could come into doubt as well. Sterling will surely feature for the Three Lions if healthy, with the team’s first match of the tournament on June 11 against Russia.
