Manchester City record goalscorer, Sergio Kun Aguero will miss the rest of the season after it was confirmed that the striker damaged his knee in the game against Burnley on Monday.

The Argentine forward appeared to have difficulty in his movements in the latter stages of the first half and was replaced at the start of the second half by Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.

Aguero will now miss Manchester City’s Champions League last 16 second-leg clash with Real Madrid in August.

He tweeted this afternoon confirming the news.

“The scans I did this morning have confirmed that I have damaged my left knee. It’s a pity but I’m in good spirits and so focused to come back as soon as possible. Thank you very much for all your messages!”

While Manchester City also confirmed the striker will travel to Barcelona for further examination.

“Sergio Aguero suffered damage to his left knee in our recent 5-0 win over Burnley. The striker will now travel to Barcelona to see Dr Ramon Cugat for further examination. Everyone at City wishes Sergio the best with his recovery.”

The 32-year-old has scored 16 goals in 24 Premier League appearances for Manchester City this season.

Aguero has scored 254 goals in 370 appearances for the Cityzens in all competitions since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011 in a deal €40 million.
