Sergio Aguero is set to retire from football due to his recent heart problems, according to Spanish reports.
He claims the 33-year-old will officially announce his decision to retire at a press conference, which is thought to be scheduled for next week.

Aguero was rushed to hospital after experiencing chest pains and breathing difficulties during Barcelona vs. Alaves last month.
He's only played five games for his new club since his transfer last summer.
If the decorated forward does indeed walk away from the sport as a result of his heart problems, it'll bring to an end a storied 19-year professional career.
The Argentine began his career in his home country before moving to Atletico Madrid, where he made his name as a world class striker.
He scored over 100 goals for Atletico, winning the Europa League during his first at the club.
From there, he signed for Manchester City and became a club legend - helping them win an impressive five Premier League titles.
Aguero will go down as one of the greatest strikers to have played in the Premier League having scored an incredible 184 goals.
