The Argentinian, on his Twitter, said he developed symptoms following a ‘close contact’ and is following medical procedures to make a full recovery.
“After a close contact, I've been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for COVID 19. I had some symptoms and I'm following the doctor's orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!” said Aguero on Twitter.
Aguero has started only three matches for Pep Guardiola’s side this season, following missing the end of last season and the start of the current one after undergoing knee surgery in June last year.
A hamstring injury in October made difficult his return to action, which was followed by episodes of knee discomfort.
