Today, Romero reports that the decision has been taken, and the announcement could come next week through a press conference. It is deeply saddening that the news has broken through today, ahead of Xavi’s first game as Barcelona manager, against derby rivals Espanyol no less.
Aguero’s debut for Barcelona was delayed by three months after he picked up an injury in training. However, he was able to score for the garnet and blue — against Real Madrid in the 2-1 loss on 24th October.
Aguero was rushed to hospital following Barca’s 1-1 draw with Alaves at the end of October after suffering from chest pains and breathing difficulties.
