The career of Barcelona’s striker Sergio Aguero is facing an uncertain future after he experienced heart issues in late October. However, retirement doesn’t seem to be on the cards for the Argentinian at the moment, according to a report by ESPN.

Aguero’s problems started during a 1-1 draw with Alaves on October 30th, when he reportedly experienced significant chest pain. The 33-year-old underwent several tests shortly after the game and was found to have a case of cardiac arrhythmia. Barca immediately ruled him out for at least three months, during which Aguero will undergo a series of treatments.

Recent reports from Spain indicated that Sergio Aguero’s condition is worse than it was originally believed and that he will have no choice but to walk away from professional soccer. However, sources close to the club and the player have denied this and reiterated that Aguero won’t rush into any decisions until he completes the treatment.

Aguero also acknowledged the rumors via Twitter.

“Given the rumors, I can tell you that I am following the instructions from the club’s medical team, having tests and treatment, and seeing how I evolve during the 90 day process. Always positive,” he wrote on social media on Friday.

Aguero joined Barca on a free transfer this summer after previously spending 10 years with Manchester City. So far, he has made five appearances for the La Liga side and scored one goal.
