Aguero hints at a return to football just over three months since retirement

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has not ruled out a return to football, despite being forced into retirement last year with heart problems.

The 33-year-old was emotionally forced to call time on his playing career last December, just months after joining Barcelona after he was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia while playing for the Catalan side.

The striker had experienced pain in his chest and breathing difficulty during the first half of Barcelona’s 1-1 home draw with Alaves on October 30.

The Argentine was taken to hospital for cardiological tests and was initially advised by medics to take a break from the sport.

But it was later deemed inadvisable for Aguero to continue playing at the highest level and he announced his premature retirement at a press conference at the Nou Camp.

However, Aguero hinted he could consider a return to football in a couple of years as he revealed he wants to train again.

‘Yesterday, it crossed my mind that I could play again. Inter Miami called me but I refused. In two years? Let’s see,’ he told TYC Sports.

‘The doctors told me that I have to spend five or six months without activity, but I already want to train again!’

MLS side Inter Miami are owned by David Beckham and managed by Phil Neville and have had a host of former Premier League players play for them, including Kieran Gibbs and Gonzalo Higuain.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Beckham is keen to bring seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi to the club.

The goal is reportedly to unite Messi with his former Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
