Although recovered from the Covid-19, Sergio Aguero has not received a summons for City’s next match, scheduled this weekend against Sheffield.
Sergio Aguero is still waiting to resume training, following his coronavirus infection.
The Argentinian was due to honor his first start since October in the FA Cup third round match against Birmingham on January 10, but was forced into solitary confinement after coming into close contact with someone who had tested positive.
He has since tested positive himself and suffered from symptoms of Covid-19, but is now waiting for a negative result before he can find his way back to the field.
Aguero will miss Saturday’s clash against Sheffield United, as will Kevin De Bruyne, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, and Nathan Aké, who is still not at his best physically.
“Sergio is not here yet”, Pep Guardiola confirmed. “When he tests negative, he will come back. We still haven’t received the latest results. Nathan Aké is not yet available. So it will be the same. [équipe] only for the last matches. “
Guardiola also ruled out bringing in other players before Monday’s transfer deadline, though Eric Garcia’s future remains uncertain.
The Spanish defender’s contract expires at the end of the season but Barcelona could still try to get him signed before February 1. Barca presidential candidate Victor Font has said City have agreed to sell Garcia for € 3million and the 20-year-old offering to play for free for six months, but Guardiola has refused to decide on his future.
“I don’t want to say anything about it – he’s our player, the transfer window ends in a few days. He’s fully engaged, he’s an exceptional player and guy, that’s all “, confided the Catalan technician.
