BARCELONA denied rumours suggesting Sergio Aguero is set to announce his retirement next week.
Aguero suffered breathing problems during Barca’s LaLiga clash with Alaves last month at the Nou Camp and was replaced by Philippe Coutinho on 42 minutes.
The Manchester City legend was taken to hospital for tests before being ruled out of action for at least three months to undergo a period of observation after being diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia.
Shocking reports from Spain later claimed the forward is going to hang up his boots in the coming days.
However, Barcelona vice-president Rafa Yuste denied those reports claiming that Aguero will use the next three months to decide his next move.
Yuste said: “I deny these reports. Aguero has three months to see how this anomaly evolves.”
This comes after Barcelona journalist and streamer Gerard Romero claimed Aguero is set to call time on his career.
Many other major Spanish publications backed the report claiming that the Argentina international may become “incompatible” with the professional game and may no longer be “at a level required by Barcelona” because of his heart problem.

Romero tweeted: “Kun Aguero retires. Heart problems force him to leave football activity. A press conference has been scheduled to announce his retirement next week.”
However, Aguero has previously stated that he is focused on his recovery and remains positive.
The 33-year-old added that he will wait for at least 90 days to determine his next move based on his progress.
Aguero said: “Given the rumours, I tell them that I am following the indications of the club’s doctors, doing tests and treatment and seeing my progress within 90 days. Always positive.”
