Sergio Aguero is expected to announce his retirement from football due to a heart complaint on Wednesday lunchtime in a press conference at the Camp Nou Stadium, his club FC Barcelona confirmed.

33-year-old Aguero has not played since suffering an arrythmia when Barcelona hosted Alaves on October 30, which saw him taken to hospital. The club explained that the Argentinian would be sidelined for at least three months, in which tests would be carried out to see whether he would be able to continue with his career.

If Aguero does confirm his retirement from the game, it will mean he has made just five appearances for Barca after joining on a free transfer from Manchester City over the summer.
