Sergio Aguero is back in Manchester today, having been cleared by Argentina to fly home after feeling faint at half-time of Argentina’s match against Nigeria yesterday.
The 29-year-old was forced to travel to a nearby hospital for a check-up, but in an official club statement City confirmed that he never lost consciousness and was allowed to fly back to England.
While there is no further news from the club itself on his status for the weekend yet, Daily Mail journalist Jack Gaughan is reporting on Twitter that the expectation within the CFA is that Kun should be available to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Leicester are unbeaten in six games in all competition with new coach Claude Puel bringing about an improvement in form, so the availability of Aguero will be a boost for Pep Guardiola as he looks to extend City’s 15-match winning streak.
