In his first season with the Citizens, Aguero scored a dramatic winning goal on 93 minutes and 20 seconds to help Roberto Mancini’s side come from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2, securing the Premier League title on goal difference ahead of rivals Manchester United.

The Argentine suffered chest pains and a shortness of breath in his side’s La Liga clash with Alaves last month and was initially ruled out for three months following cardiac exams.

The 33-year-old felt unwell in the first half of Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Camp Nou, and was sent to hospital before he underwent cardiological tests to determine the severity of his condition.

“Sergio Agüero was struggling with chest pain for much of the first half and was replaced by Philippe Coutinho at half time and then taken to hospital for cardiac analysis,” Barcelona said in a statement.

Aguero sustained a right calf injury in Sunday’s training session, before Messi gave a farewell speech at the Camp Nou after Barca were unable to sign him to a new contract. Messi is expected to join Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent.

Messi was a free agent after his contract at Barca expired and he had courted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City since first revealing a desire to end his 20-year relationship with Barca last summer. The 34-year-old’s previous contract was worth over €500m and that expired at the stroke of midnight on July 1.

Barca stated that the Argentine veteran will join them on July 1 when his current deal with Manchester City expires. Aguero’s buy-out clause has been set at €100 million ($122 million).

Pep Guardiola’s men booked their tickets to Istanbul with a 4-1 aggregate victory over last year’s runners-up Paris Saint-Germain, while Chelsea beat Real Madrid 3-1 over two legs to set up a European battle with their counterparts.

After a frustrating first 45 minutes in south London, it was City’s record goalscorer who broke the deadlock with a superb finish and Ferran Torres wrapped up the points soon after following a fine curled effort.
