Aguero ruled out of Porto game, but Guardiola not worried by injury

Sergio Aguero will miss Manchester City's Champions League game with Porto on Tuesday - but boss Pep Guardiola says the problem is not serious. Aguero was absent for Saturday's 5-0 win over Burnley with a knee problem and has not returned to training. The 32-year-old Argentina striker has only played four times this season. "I am not concerned. He did not train. He had a little disturbance in his knee. It is nothing serious," said Guardiola. City have already booked their place in the last 16 after winning their first four games. A draw in Portugal will seal top spot. "We go there to get first place in the group stage.

Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne will miss Saturday's home Premier League game against Arsenal through injury.

De Bruyne returned to City after leaving the Belgium squad before their game against Iceland on Wednesday. City are 14th in the Premier League table with four points from their first three games. "I never complain about the international break," added former Spain midfielder Guardiola. "I know how important ...

Lautaro Martinez: Man City eye Inter Milan striker as Sergio Aguero’s potential successor

Manchester City expect to be busy in the summer transfer window and have earmarked Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez as a potential long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero. Sky Sports News reported earlier this summer that the Argentina striker is Barcelona's top target but City are known admirers of the 22-year-old, who is refusing to extend his present contract at San Siro. City see Lautaro Martinez, who has scored 18 goals in 39 games for Inter this season, as a potential long-term successor to his compatriot Aguero and will be better placed than Barcelona to pay the striker's £98.5m release clause. Summer contract talks with Guardiola While the transfer window opens in less than a fortnight, arguably the most important contract talks this summer will be w...
