Aguero will participate in this year’s Copa America with his home country, Argentina. The hosting of the tournament has switched on Monday from Colombia and Argentina as co-hosts to Brazil, the new host.
Meanwhile, the future of Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain and fellow Argentinian, is still uncertain.
Messi, whose contract expires at the end of June, is yet to sign a new deal with Barcelona.
