Sergio Aguero out for THREE MONTHS after being rushed to hospital with chest pains and breathing issues in Barcelona tie

BARCELONA star Sergio Aguero is out for at least THREE MONTHS after being rushed to hospital with chest pains and breathing difficulties.

The former Manchester City striker needed medical treatment on the pitch after clutching his chest and complaining of breathing problems during Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Alaves.

Spanish press reported that the 33-year-old was diagnosed with 'diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat'.

Now his club have revealed that the Argentine is set for an extended spell on the sidelines while he is monitored by doctors.

The Catalans tweeted: "Barca player Kun Aguero has been subjected to a diagnostic and therapeutic process by Dr Josep Brugada.

"He is unavailable for selection and, during the next three months, the effectiveness of treatment will be evaluated in order to determine his recovery process."

Aguero fell to the floor and needed treatment from medics after being seen clutching his chest.

As well as complaining of chest pains and difficulty breathing, Aguero is reported to have been suffering from a high heart rate.

Thankfully he made it back to his feet and walked off the pitch but tests at Barcelona Hospital showed the former Manchester City man to have a 'cardiac arrhythmia,' according to well-respected Spanish outlet SPORT.

The report goes on to claim that further in-depth tests will be carried out, but he is said to have already been diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat.

The Barca summer signing pointed to his chest while receiving treatment and team-mates checked up on him during worrying scenes.

But he did not require the stretcher that was brought on for him and was replaced by Philippe Coutinho.

Aguero joined the Catalan giants in the summer after ten trophy-laden years at Manchester City.

And his former club tweeted their well wishes to Aguero, saying: "Everyone at Manchester City wishes you a speedy recovery, @aguerosergiokun.

"We're with you."

Raheem Sterling also sent his well wishes to his ex-teammate, tweeting: "Stay strong my brother @aguerosergiokun, we’re all with you. Get well soon."

The striker has scored one goal in five appearances in all competitions since his switch to Camp Nou.
