Manchester City have been given a boost by the news that Sergio Aguero is back training once more.
The Argentina international suffered a knee injury in the Premier League champions’ opening fixture of the campaign against Southampton on August 19, and has been working his way back to fitness since.
The South American forward has been pictured working with the club’s physios, running, stretching and doing ball work, whilst Aguero has tweeted that he can’t wait to get back to action.
City had initially hoped that Aguero would be fit to return by mid-September, but his rehabilitation has taken slightly longer than expected.
The club have admitted that ‘whether the league match on Saturday away against Stoke is too soon for a return or not remains to be seen’ according to The Guardian.
Meanwhile, The Sun states that Aguero is eyeing the Champions League game against Real Madrid as a possible match to return to action in.
