Argentine soccer star, Sergio Aguero, is set to announce his retirement at just 33 years old owing to heart problems, Spanish newspapers, Marca, reports.
Aguero left Manchester City for Barcelona at the end of last season, signing a two-year deal at the Spanish club.
The Argentine has so far played 165 minutes for Barcelona in LaLiga Santander and Champions League before leaving the pitch against Alaves in October due to chest discomfort.
A journalist and Radio MARCA contributor, Gerard Romero, said on his Twitch channel on Saturday that Aguero will announce his retirement in a press conference scheduled for next week.
Medical exams showed that Aguero suffered an arrhythmia and although those around him have tried to play down scenarios regarding a potential retirement, the Argentine has decided to call it a day with his football career.
Though Barcelona has denied the news, there are strong indications that Aguero could indeed quit football in the coming days as a result of the heart issue.
