Aguero’s dad, Leonel del Castillo, has given an update on his son’s knee problems to Radio La Red following the Burnley game.
According to Leonel del Castillo, Sergio is set for a knee operation in Barcelona this Friday. He said:
His knee was already hurting and he got worse in the game. He thinks it’s a meniscus (injury), although tomorrow they will do an MRI to confirm it. I predict that they will operate on him in Barcelona on Thursday or Friday.
If that prognosis comes to fruition, then ESPN Brasil estimate that Aguero could be sidelined for 6 weeks.
That would make it highly unlikely that Aguero would be available for the Champions League tie against Real Madrid.
