Sergio Aguero could feature against Hoffenheim in the Champions League on Tuesday after being cleared to play.
Speaking ahead of the game, manager Pep Guardiola confirmed the Argentine had travelled with the squad to Germany. "He is here because the doctors said he is able - tomorrow we will decide whether to play him or Gabriel Jesus." Aguero has been nursing an injury since the win over Newcastle a month ago and the City boss admits the ongoing issue will have a bearing on his game over the next two matches. "Sergio is struggling a bit with some problems in his foot. He is not 100 percent. He has not recovered, and we spoke about playing about 60 minutes [on Saturday] and we were lucky he scored at the right moment. We have two games left before the international break and hopefully he can [play] these two and then make a final recovery. But he's not in his best condition right now." Oct 1 - 5:06 PM

Lost in the team news over the weekend was the new contract signed by Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero.

The team's all-time leading scorer celebrated with his fourth goal of the season in his 300th overall appearance for Manchester City in a 5-0 win over Cardiff City. The new deal extends his current contract by a year, which will keep him at the club until 2021, when he is 33 years old. Said Aguero, who has always expressed a hope to return to Argentina at the end of his contract: "I am happy for this additional year. My idea was being here for 10 years. I've been here for seven years [and] it's going to be 10 when the contract expires. This was the main reason I signed. I'm very happy because they have treated my very well since the first day I got here. I'm very happy with everything that involves the club, my teammates, the staff and the management team."

Sergio Aguero has trained ahead of Manchester City’s Champions League clash with Lyon on Wednesday.

The Argentine striker suffered a minor ankle injury during the win over Fulham last weekend and has been receiving intensive treatment in a bid to be fit for the match. On Tuesday, assistant City coach Mikel Arteta, who was speaking in the absence of the suspended Pep Guardiola, confirmed Aguero, along with Benjamin Mendy, would be assessed in training ahead of the tie. "We will see how they react in the next 24 hours, then make a decision." But, following on from the lunchtime press conference, City released a statement via the club website confirming Aguero "looked fit and raring to go" in a session led by Guardiola while Mendy missed out altogether - the defender remains a major doubt for the game against the Ligue 1 side. His absence is likely to see Fabian Delph continue to deputise at left-back.

Pep Guardiola reveals Sergio Aguero’s withdrawal versus Fulham was enforced after the striker picked up an injury.

With a European tie against French side Lyon on Wednesday night, many believed the introduction of Gabriel Jesus, early in the second half, was a tactical switch affording Aguero the opportunity to rest ahead of the Champions League. But, speaking post-match, Guardiola confirmed the Argentine will be assessed after suffering a problem with his ankle. "When he fell down, he felt something. He finished the first half [but] started the second half feeling uncomfortable. He could play, but we decided not to risk it. ‘Will he be fit for Lyon?’ We will see tomorrow." Just last week Aguero said. "It’s the best I’ve felt in years," following surgery in April to remedy a persistent knee complaint. "I feel fantastic ... I don't feel any discomfort," he told the club's website. "During the past few years, I felt pains at times and when last season came to an end, we decided it would be best to start treatment. And the results were positive."

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manchester City cruised to a very comfortable 6-1 win over Huddersfield Town at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's decision to alter his tactics and leave Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker out of the starting XI paid significant dividends in their home opener. The hosts were running on 25 minutes. Ederson sharpy picked out Aguero an with an 80-yard pass, and the striker drew out Ben Hamer, kept his composure, and chipped the goalkeeper for his first of the day. Gabriel Jesus added a second seven minutes later before Aguero jumped on a Hamer mistake to poke home soon after. Jon Gorenc Stankovic pulled one back just before half-time, but David Silva netted a brilliant free-kick shortly after the restart to quell a potential turnaround. Aguero completed his ninth PL hat-trick with a flick on 75 minutes, while substitute Sane forced an own goal for the sixth late on.

Sergio Aguero is expected to miss Argentina’s final Group D game against Nigeria as manager Jorge Sampaoli rings the changes.

La Albiceleste are on the brink of a World Cup exit following their embarrassing 3-0 defeat by Croatia and the Manchester City star could be one of several high-profile names omitted from the starting XI on Tuesday. "Kun Aguero WON'T play in the decisive match against Nigeria," respected journalist Jose Alvarez Haya posted on his Twitter timeline. "Sampaoli will punish him for everything that happened the other day but publicly will justify it by sport reasons. Then will be out Argentina's only goal scorer in the World Cup that has played two very good games." His absence is likely to see a change of system with Gonzalo Higuaín starting his first game of the finals alongside Paulo Dybala while Angel di Maria could be handed a recall.

Sergio Aguero is on track to be fully fit for Argentina’s opening match at the FIFA World Cup finals next month.

La Albiceleste face Iceland on June 16 and the Manchester City star is expected to be in contention following his recovery from surgery. Aguero was introduced as a second half substitute in Buenos Aires against Haiti on Monday evening and took just 10 minutes to slot the ball home from a perfectly threaded Lionel Messi pass. Aguero took the decision in April to remedy a long standing knee complaint when City were knocked out of the Champions League, a problem which he later revealed had been bothering him for the last five years. Argentina find themselves behind Brazil, Germany, Spain and France in the betting, however, Messi insists they will "go to Russia with hope" following the 4-0 rout. "We're not going as favourites but will give it our all. We had a complicated time in the qualifiers, but we are training well."

Sergio Aguero says his knee "feels like new" after struggling with a persistent problem since 2013.

Aguero took the decision to have surgery in April following Manchester City’s exit from the Champions League. "I spoke with the medical team earlier [in the season] and we agreed to wait. It didn’t improve," he told Argentine TV channel TyC Sports. "Pep [Guardiola] used me as a substitute a lot and told me to stay calm but after being knocked out, I told the doctors, I didn’t feel good. With the World Cup ahead, I preferred to do it because otherwise I could have missed out." Despite only making 22 Premier League starts, and completing 90 minutes on thirteen occasions, Aguero was still City’s top scorer with 21-goals which came at a rate of one in every 94 minutes played and defenders could be forgiven for fearing the worst ahead of the upcoming campaign. The Argentine has directly contributed to a goal in every 82 minutes since 2013/14 and facing a fully fit Aguero is a daunting prospect for any centre-back.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola announced that forward Sergio Aguero will not return this season.

The forward had arthroscopic surgery on his troublesome knee this week, after playing with the injury since mid March, in the hopes of being available for the World Cup this summer with Argentina. The expected recovery time for such an injury is four to six weeks, barring any setbacks. Manchester City will also be without Fernandinho, due to suspension, this weekend, but otherwise look to be fit. Said Guardiola about Aguero: "Here, yes. It is four or five weeks [out]. Hopefully he is going to be ready for the World Cup and he will be ready for the next season. He is in Barcelona right now, for the first part of the rehabilitation he is going to be there."

Sergio Aguero's arthroscopic surgery could have more repercussions that just the end of the Premier League season.

Aguero has likely been ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a couple knocks to his knee over the last few weeks, but Argentina's team doctor has his doubts over Aguero's place in the World Cup team this summer, saying that the star striker at least won't be 100 %. Said Homero D'Agostino: "That a player has undergone an arthroscope with 60 days to go before the World Cup is worrying. The recovery process will require at least five weeks...It's never going to be less than three or four weeks, or even more. I imagine that he will not arrive 100 percent fit with the limited time that is left before the World Cup."

Sergio Aguero is expected to miss the remainder of the season following a small surgical procedure on his knee.

The Argentine star was injured in training over a month ago but returned for a 15-minute cameo in the Manchester derby, only be caught by a heavy Ashley Young challenge which somehow went unpunished by referee Martin Atkinson. Speaking ahead of the Tottenham clash at Wembley, Guardiola confirmed Aguero would miss the game: "He made a huge effort [to play] in the last 20 minutes [against Liverpool] then said he couldn't run," revealed the City boss. "He had problems with his knee and could not train. Hopefully he will be ready for the last games and the World Cup." However, having clinched the Premier League title on Sunday, a decision was taken for Aguero to go under the knife to remedy a niggling problem. The striker is said to be targeting a return in May. "Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee," he tweeted on Tuesday. "Fully motivated to get back soon to the field."

Manchester City will have to fend off Tottenham without star forward Sergio Aguero due to a knee injury.

The Argentine forward came off the bench against Liverpool in a 2-1 Champions League loss this week, hobbling through the second half. Aguero missed much of March with a knee injury and then suffered a reaction after a challenge from Manchester United winger Ashley Young last weekend. Said Guardiola: "He was injured before the game [against Liverpool] but tried to help us. That's why he could not play from the beginning. He was not ready...He played less than 15, 20 minutes and after said he cannot run and was in a lot of pain. I don’t if he will be ready for Swansea. Hopefully for the last games we can have him.
Apr 13 - 5:31 PM

Ahead of a massive week for Manchester City, Pep Guardiola said Sergio Aguero will face a fitness test on Saturday.

Manchester City can win the league on Saturday with a win over hated rivals Manchester United, but also have a huge Champions League deficit to overcome against Liverpool at home on Tuesday: both of which Aguero will want to be a part of if he can shake a knee injury. "I don’t know right now [whether he will play]," Guardiola said. "We have training this afternoon and we are going to see his physical condition. We have three massive games coming up - United, Liverpool and Spurs - we have to see the players condition. We have training later and we will see later."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he remains hopeful that Sergio Aguero will be fit for the weekend derby.

The Sky Blues are going to need all the help they can get in attack for the upcoming week with a chance to win the Premier League title on Saturday against Manchester United shortly followed by a second leg Champions League quarterfinal with Liverpool where they already trail 3-0. The Argentine has missed the last three weeks with a knee injury but Guardiola said he is steadily improving: "We will see. He is much, much better, but the physios and doctor spoke with him and he said he still wasn’t perfect. I hope he will be back for Saturday."
Apr 5 - 5:11 PM

Liverpool won't have to worry about Sergio Aguero, at least for the first leg, in Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Manchester City.

Aguero hasn't played in the last three weeks since suffering a knee injury in training in mid-March, despite hoping to return against Everton over the weekend. But manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the Argentine will need some more time to recover and won't be available for the first leg trip to Liverpool in tomorrow's Champions League quarterfinals. "Sergio is back in Manchester," Guardiola said. "He did not come. He was injured in the last two weeks. He is much, much better but the doctors spoke to him today and he said he still has a little bit of a problem and isn’t comfortable...We will see [for the weekend derby]."
