The Argentina international's problem is worse than first feared
According to Catalunya Radio, Sergio Aguero could have to retire because of the heart problem detected in Barcelona's draw with Alaves at Camp Nou.
Barcelona's first diagnostic was that the player would be treated for three months ahead of a possible return, but that has reportedly changed in the last few days.
According to the same information, the Argentina striker is suffering from a cardiac arrhythmia which is not benign and seriously puts his career in risk.
Aguero is aware of the situation and there's pessimism, although Catalunya Radio add that, despite everything, there is nothing definitive yet in terms of a decision.
During the coming months, the former Manchester City forward will continue to be monitored with regular tests and check ups to see what the state of play is.
