Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has targeted two games after the next international break as he bids to make his comeback from a knee injury, according to reports in the UK.
Manager Pep Guardiola confirmed last week that the Argentine’s recovery from surgery was taking longer than expected, with an estimated return date of one to two months.
However, Aguero is already in light training and the 32-year-old is said to be confident of playing against Arsenal on October 17th or a week later versus West Ham on October 24th.
The Argentinian international has not played a competitive match since being taken off in the 5-0 win against Burnley all the way back in June, and he will need some time to get back to full match sharpness.
With Guardiola having also stated that Aguero takes longer than other players to recover, there is no guarantee that, even if he is fit, the City boss will start him straight away, especially if Gabriel Jesus shows good form at the start of this season.
