Sergio Aguero has signed a deal to become a content creator with Disney +, months after the Barcelona forward had to retire from football.
Aguero left Manchester City last summer, after helping them secure the Premier League title, and moved to join Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
His mate then left for PSG and, after making just five appearances, following an injury when he joined, Aguero was forced off during a game with breathing problems.
In December, the former Atletico Madrid player announced that he had to retire at just 33-years-old, due to a heart problem, with his cardiologist explaining that it was due to a scar near his heart from a previous incident.
Now though Aguero will be making content for Disney +, with the former player announcing the deal to be a content creator on his social media.
According to ESPN's Sports Centre, the Argentine said, "we think alike and the projects are exciting. I'm ready." although the exact projects haven't been confirmed.
Aguero has been a frequent live streamer on his Twitch channel since having to hang up his boots, coming to the defence of his mate Messi on one occasion.
The former player recently claimed that he was thinking of coming out of retirement and had been offered a deal to do so, though ruled it out any time soon.
Speaking to Argentine outlet TyC, the retired former player said, "Yesterday, it crossed my mind that I could play again. Inter Miami called me but I refused. In two years? Let’s see…"
Aguero joined City in 2011, relatively early on in their real push to become one of the Premier League's title challengers, and they won it for the first time in his first season.
He went on to win the league five times, playing 390 times and scoring 260 goals in all competitions, his 184 strikes in the league made him the Premier League's fourth all time top goalscorer, just three off Andrew Cole in third.
His rivalry with Manchester United has continued in retirement, as he claimed in another stream that all UK journalists were fans of City's rivals.
Perhaps he'll do a deep dive into that claim in a Disney + documentary sometime in the future...
