The date for Sergio Aguero’s return from injury is very close, with the Argentine ace close to recovery and scheduled to make the squad list against Valencia on the 17th of October.
Kun would finally make his competitive debut for Barcelona since joining and could provide a huge boost for Ronald Koeman, who is having to deal with a fair few injuries in the team.
There was plenty of speculation about the former Manchester City striker’s satisfaction at the club after Lionel Messi’s departure, but Aguero has maintained that he is keen on succeeding with Barcelona regardless.
Aguero picked up an injury in the lead-up to the Joan Gamper trophy game against Juventus and was estimated to be out of action for ten weeks.
Doctors have reportedly estimated that Kun will be in a position to make his debut at the Mestella.
After Barcelona’s Champions League game against Benfica and the crucial clash against Atletico Madrid, the two-week international break will serve Aguero perfectly to complete his recovery and be included in the squad for the Valencia game in October.
His debut will be an exciting prospect for all Barcelona fans. And albeit he may be lacking sharpness, he does solve the lack of a natural number ‘9’ albeit temporarily.
Here’s hoping the Argentine returns to the fine form that made him such a force to be reckoned with at Man City.
