One of the more disappointing realities of signing a legend like Sergio Aguero is unfortunately his injury history. The Argentinian legend got hurt before even made his debut and was expected to be out for 10 weeks.

Now that we’re in the midst of his recovery and nearing the end, hopefully, they’re getting close to nailing down a return date. The goal, according to Sport, is October 17th against Valencia.

Barcelona are due to play Benfica in the Champions League before then and then Atletico in La Liga before the season pauses once again for another international break. Valencia is the first game back after the break.

There’s no doubt the Camp Nou will be happy to see Aguero grace the pitch after such a strange offseason. His production, when healthy, is something that Barcelona could very much use this season. So hopefully they’re conservative enough with his minutes to allow for good health.
