Barcelona have announced that striker Sergio Aguero will miss at least the next three months after undergoing cardiac tests in hospital.

The Argentine was admitted to hospital after being forced off during the first half of Saturday’s La Liga draw with Alaves.

Barca later confirmed Aguero had suffered chest discomfort and would undergo cardiac tests. It was later reported the 33-year-old had been diagnosed with a cardiac arrhythmia.

The Catalan giants have now offered a fresh update and explained how Aguero will be unavailable for selection for the time being.

“The first team player Sergio Agüero has been subjected to a diagnostic and therapeutic process by Dr.Josep Brugada. He is unavailable for selection and during the next three months the effectiveness of treatment will be evaluated in order to determine his recovery process.

“The Argentine was taken to hospital for cardiological evaluation on Saturday following the Barça v Alavés game in which the Barça striker felt unwell in the first half and was replaced before half time by Philippe Coutinho.”
