Barcelona Striker Sergio Aguero could now have to retire from professional football following a diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmia, MySportDab reports.
The health issue is actually more complicated than first expected.
According to Spanish Outlet Catalunya Radio, Aguero’s tests results have not look good.
The former Manchester City player had to leave the pitch 41 minutes into his first start for Barcelona with chest pains in October.
Aguero had planned to rest for three months but the issue now appears to be far more significant.
MySportDab understands that Aguero has been offered the option of retirement from football.
His health condition is now so complex that he could be ‘incompatible’ with any professional sport.
Aguero joined Barcelona from Manchester City on a free transfer last summer.
In his first start for Barcelona in a LaLiga match against Alaves, Aguero started feeling chest pains.
The Argentinian had to be taken off the pitch and rushed to the hospital for the two days.
Barcelona later announced in a new statement that Aguero would rest for three months due to treatment.
The news attracted the attention of former Coach Pep Guardiola.
‘I have talked to his agent. It’s difficult for him and his family,’ City manager Pep Guardiola said.
‘We wish him well. We wish him a safe recovery. Health and life are far more important.
‘He’s in good hands, and must always take care of himself, we wish him a quick recovery.’
Aguero had played only five matches across all competitions for Barcelona since he arrived in Spain.
He scored one goal in Barcelona’s El Clasico 2-1 defeat against rivals Real Madrid in LaLiga.
