Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will undergo an operation on his left knee in Barcelona on Thursday or Friday.
The Argentine picked up the injury in City’s 5-0 win over Burnley on Monday.
“A little while ago I spoke with him. He got struck on the knee that had already been hurting him during the week,” Aguero’s father, Leonel del Castillo, told Radio La Red.
“It was the miniscus so today, on Tuesday, they will do an MRI and they are going to see the severity of the injury.
“I calculate that they will operate on him in Barcelona on Thursday or Friday, where he did it the last time,” he explained.
