Manchester City is awaiting further developments on Sergio Aguero following reports of a calf strain suffered while participating in a Sunday training match at the Argentina camp.

MARCA believes the free-scoring frontman had to be replaced by Nicolas Gaitan in the exercise while he was assessed by the national team's medical staff, and the Atletico Madrid man will assume Aguero's place in the lineup on Tuesday against Paraguay if he cannot overcome the issue in time.

The photo released by Argentina's official Twitter later in the day shows the oft-injured Aguero resting up after his exertions ahead of the vital World Cup qualifier. He was snapped alongside Tottenham Hotspur's Erik Lamela, with no clear suggestion of an ailment to the striker.
