Sergio Aguero is out for a month
Will Sergio Aguero play for Man City again this season?
It’s been confirmed on Tuesday that Aguero needs an operation and he’ll be out for the next month.
The news was broken by Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya. He confirmed that Aguero requires “surgery in his meniscus”.
Aguero, who has also since confirmed the news on social media, is choosing to have the operation now in order to be fully healthy for Argentina at the World Cup.
Breaking: Agüero visited last thursday Dr Cugat and they decided yesterday that the surgery in his meniscus was the best option. It was this morning in Barcelona and he will be out one month. He will play the World Cup without problems.

Man City win the Premier League
Of course, Man City have now been crowned Premier League champions.
Would Aguero have had his surgery if West Brom hadn’t beaten Man United last weekend?
The Sky Blues will be able to celebrate their title at the Etihad Stadium next weekend when they take on Swansea City.
With Aguero out of contention, Gabriel Jesus is set to start in attack for City on Saturday.
2018 World Cup: Who will win?
It’s less than two months until the 2018 World Cup kicks off in Russia.
As the finalists all fine tune their teams before the upcoming squad announcements, it’s worth considering who are the favourites to win the World Cup.
Of course, the reigning champs are Germany.
The Germans beat Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final in the Maracana. That’s after Jogi Low’s side beat Brazil 7-1 in the semifinals.
