Barcelona Suffer Huge Sergio Aguero Blow As Lionel Messi Nears Transfer To PSG

Things go from bad to worse for Barcelona, with the club dealt a major Sergio Aguero blow amid Lionel Messi's shock exit.

Aguero signed for Barca on a free transfer following the expiration of his Manchester City contract.

He had hoped to play with good friend Messi for the upcoming season, but that partnership has been nixed due to the club's dire financial situation.

Messi appears to be on the verge of signing for Paris Saint-Germain, with the 34-year-old reportedly agreeing terms with the French giants.

Barca have now been hit with another setback as Aguero has been ruled out of action for 10 weeks.

The club's statement reads: "LATEST NEWS ' Tests carried out on first team player Kun Agüero have confirmed a right calf injury. He will be out around ten weeks."

The Argentine forward suffered a calf injury in a training session last weekend.

He was unable to make his Barca debut in the 3-0 victory over Juventus at the Joan Gamper trophy.

There had been reports claiming that Aguero wanted to leave Barca as a result of Messi's departure.

But he denied those rumours, saying: "Don't worry, you have me all year long."

On Aguero's injury, Ronald Koeman said: "It's a pity he got injured and could not play 30 minutes at the Gamper.

"It's a setback as he was training and can bring a lot to the team with his qualify up front."

So, the Catalan outfit will be without Messi and Aguero for their La Liga opener against Real Sociedad on August 15.
