Barcelona’s Sergio Agüero to announce retirement with heart condition | Sergio Agüero

Sergio Aguero is set to announce his retirement from football on Wednesday due to a heart condition, six months after Manchester City’s record scorer joined Barcelona as a free agent.

The 33-year-old struggled with chest issues and breathing difficulties during the first half of Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Alaves on October 30. Aguero fell onto the grass at the Camp Nou clutching his chest and was treated for several minutes before he could get out. He was taken to hospital for heart checks, and the club later stated that he would be out for three months and would undergo a “diagnosis and treatment process”.

But Aguero is unable to resume an impressive 18-year career that the Argentine started at Independiente, when he became the youngest player to debut in his country. Three years later, the striker moved to Atletico Madrid in 2006, before moving to City in the summer of 2011.

His first season at the club ended with the highlight of his career when his 94th minute victory over Queens Park Rangers took the lead from Manchester United and handed City their first title since 1968. His contract with the club ended with 260 goals in the tournament. 390 games, he scored 184 goals in the English Premier League, which is a record for a single team. His last appearance for City ended with Chelsea losing the heart of the Champions League final, and another low point was the 2014 World Cup final loss to Germany.

In five matches for Barcelona, ​​Aguero scored once. He scored 41 goals in 101 matches with Argentina.
