Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero suffered two broken ribs after cheating death in a horror vehicle crash when he was on the way to the airport.

However, Manchester City have since confirmed Aguero was one of the people involved.

Manchester City and Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero was involved in an accident according to reports coming from the Argentinian media.

Aguero will nearly certainly miss Manchester City's trip to Chelsea tomorrow (5.30pm), a crucial fixture at the top of the Premier League.

Manchester City, now top of the English Premier League, face championship rivals Chelsea on Saturday.

Premier League power Manchester City confirmed the incidenta Friday morning on its official website.

Aguero took a photo with the singer and posted it to his Instagram account on Thursday, hours before the crash.

He said: "I only knew this morning when I woke up".

Several City players (Sane, De Bruyne, Jesus and many others) have sent their best wishes to the Argentinian Striker.

Aguero has scored six times in his last five games for the club, including an impressive hat-trick at Watford.

The player's first club, Independiente, said on Twitter: "Strength and fast recovery".

"It was his day off, I'm not the police". There are two major World Cup qualifiers in October, and Aguero is now guaranteed to miss both.

Aguero's potential absence comes as a huge blow for Pep Guardiola's side, who also lost defender Benjamin Mendy for a period of two months earlier in the week.

It means he will be unavailable for around eight matches, including big games against Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea.

City captain Vincent Kompany is also some way off returning from injury, despite being named in Belgium's squad.
