Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is out for the rest of the season having undergone knee meniscus surgery today.
The 29-year-old visited Pep Guardiola’s favourite doctor, Ramon Cugat, in Barcelona last Thursday and it was decided that minor surgery was necessary.
Kun will miss City’s five remaining fixtures, but is expected to be ready to go at this summer’s World Cup where he will represent Argentina.
Aguero has scored 30 goals in 39 appearances this season, 21 of them coming in just 25 Premier League outings.
The iconic Argentine posted an update on his social media channels today.
Recuperándome de una artroscopia en la rodilla. Y con toda la fuerza para volver pronto y mejor a las canchas 💪//Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee. Fully motivated to get back soon to the field 💪

In his absence, Gabriel Jesus can be expected to lead the line for the remaining games, and there could even be a chance for England youth international Lukas Nmecha who has been on the fringes of the first team this season and made his debut against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup last December.
