Sergio Agüero will be out of action for at least three months, according to FC Barcelona. The LaLiga club issued a statement on Monday, confirming the striker won't make a return to action until the new year. 

If the treatment goes well, the 33-year-old is expected to make a return, however, Agüero, who joined the Camp Nou outfit on a two-year deal in the summer, knows his future is unclear.

Agüero leaves Camp Nou for hospital

The Argentine came off before half-time in Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Alavés on Saturday. The former Manchester City player complained of suffering chest discomfort and dizziness and ended up in hospital. Agüero suffered a similar incident when he was 12 years old and that alarmed the doctors, who after observing the player's history and the symptoms of last Saturday's episode, have decided to monitor him and rule him out of action for at least three months.

Barcelona send support

Minutes after issuing the official statement confirming Agüero's time out, Barcelona also posted a tweet in support of the Argentinian player.

Agüero recently netted his first goal for his new club against Real Madrid in El Clásico at Camp Nou and was looking forward to playing regularly.

According to Catalan daily Sport, Agüero is distraught and is understandably worried about his future. The player's mother and brother, who have been living in Madrid for the last two months, will go to Barcelona to be with him during the hardest spell of his career.
