Aguero close to City return

first_img Pellegrini said: “Aguero continues working and maybe next week he can be fit.” City have won six of their seven games in Aguero’s absence – the exception being a 1-1 draw at Blackburn in the FA Cup third round – but his return will be welcomed ahead of next month’s Champions League date with Barcelona. Key midfielder Yaya Toure is fit for the game at Newcastle on Sunday. Toure hurt his ankle early in Wednesday’s 6-0 Capital One Cup semi-final thrashing of West Ham but appeared to run off the knock and played on until being substituted in the 66th minute. Pellegrini said: “Yaya is okay. There was a little pain in his ankle but nothing important.” Winger Jesus Navas is in contention after being rested in midweek due to a minor knee problem. Striker Stevan Jovetic and midfielder Jack Rodwell remain on the sidelines. Press Association Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be back in action in the next week, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.center_img Aguero, City’s top scorer with 19 goals this season, has been out since suffering a calf injury in the 6-3 defeat of Arsenal on December 14.
