As per the update, Aguero will now be used to carry out more tests in order to try and ascertain the severity of the issue. With his time in Barcelona already marred by injury, it is a further unfortunate turn of events for El Kun.
However, with the case of Christian Eriksen still front and centre after Euro 2020, it is clearly better to be safe and cautious with these things, even if it does force Barca to wait longer to see their summer signing in action.
