"I am currently undergoing tests and treatment. I will be able to see my progress in the next 90 days."

Before joining Barcelona in July, Aguero was Manchester City's all time leading scorer.

He made his debut for Spain last month after a calf injury.

According to Guillem Balague, BBC Radio 5 Live's European football expert, Aguero might have to wait until February/March next year to make a decision about his future.

Balague stated that Aguero signed a two-year contract with Barca in the summer. However, the club has not yet considered cancelling his contract.
