BARCELONA: Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero will make an announcement about his future on Wednesday, following heart problems and difficulty breathing while playing in La Liga in October.

Aguero will be joined by club president Joan Laporta at the press conference with local media saying he is expected to announce his retirement.

The 33 -year -old joined Barca from Manchester City last July after helping Argentina win the Copa America.

Prior to migrating, he contracted COVID-19 and on Oct. 30 was rushed to hospital after suffering respiratory problems when his team drew with Alaves in a league match.

“It looks clear the Argentine striker will announce his retirement after suffering heart problems,” Mundo Deportivo wrote on Tuesday.

The club said after undergoing a heart test in November that Aguero was not ready to play for the next three months with the effectiveness of the treatment being evaluated.

At the time Aguero said he remained positive.

“There are rumors spreading but I follow the opinion of the club doctors and we will see how my condition is in 90 days,” he wrote on Twitter.
