Injury has restricted the striker to just nine appearances this season – only five in the league – and he hasn’t played since the 3-1 win at Chelsea in early January. His two goals came in the Champions League group stage.
However, Pep Guardiola has suggested that Aguero, who was on the bench for the recent wins over Tottenham and Everton, could return to action on Sunday as City, who lead the league by ten points from arch-rivals Manchester United, travel to Arsenal.
A bona fide legend in the blue half of Manchester, the 32-year-old has been at the Etihad stadium for the past decade, banging in over 250 goals and becoming the top-scoring non-English player in Premier League history. Of course, he’ll forever be remembered for the dramatic winner against QPR in 2012 which sealed City’s first title in 44 years.
"The first thing I want to do is play,” said Aguero, speaking to Spanish YouTuber Ibai Llanos, “and at the end of the season we will see."
Barcelona are rumoured to be one of a number of teams interested in signing Aguero should he be available in the summer. The Argentine earned his move to City in 2011 after starring in La Liga for Atletico Madrid.
