Pep Guardiola Reveals Aguero Could Be Fit For Man City’s Clash Against Real Madrid

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could still be in with a chance of facing Real Madrid as he races to recover from a knee operation.

Pep Guardiola had previously said that the Argentine would not be back fit in time for the Champions League last-16 clash with the Spanish champions after he had surgery on a meniscus injury in June.
Aguero, 32, has stepped up his recovery work in the gym and although he has yet to return to the pitch, the City boss says he will have a full squad for the second leg at the Etihad Stadium, minus the suspended Benjamin Mendy.
“I think against Madrid everyone will be fit,” Guardiola said ahead of Sunday’s final Premier League game against Norwich.
“Mendy is suspended but the other ones will be fit and I think in two weeks, barring a disaster in the training session that hopefully won’t happen, everyone will be fit and we’re going to count on the senior guys for this game.”
Aguero was left on the bench for the 2-1 first-leg victory at the Santiago Bernabeu but having him available will be major boost, particularly with the quarter-finals to follow quickly after.
