World News

With reports suggesting that Sergio Aguero could be set to retire from football, FC Barcelona are now said to have identified a Premier League striker as his potential replacement. 

It has been claimed by various publications that former Manchester City forward Aguero could hang up his boots due to heart problems.

The Argentine striker joined Barca during the off-season, but due to a calf injury at the start of the campaign, and then the heart scare he suffered in October, his appearances for the club have been reduced to just five matches across all competitions to date.

As a result, the Catalan club is now said to be in the market for his replacement in January, with the Daily Mirror reporting that the Blaugrana want to sign Manchester United star Edinson Cavani and are willing to offer £5 million (R106 million) to land the Uruguayan's services. 

Cavani has had a mixed patch of game time since Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford in August, and with his contract expiring at the end of the current campaign, the former Paris Saint-Germain striker could be set to leave Manchester at the turn of the year. 

The LaLiga giants could face strong competition for his signature, though, as Serie A champions Inter Milan are also said to be interested in the attacker.
