Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has reportedly suffered broken ribs after the Argentine forward was involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday night.

Argentine newspaper Diairio Ole said Aguero, who was in the Netherlands to attend a concert of Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma, was riding in a taxi when the vehicle crashed into a pole.

Aguero, 29, is thought to have escaped more serious injury because he was wearing his seatbelt during the incident, which is said to have happened while he was making his way back to the airport, but is thought to have received hospital treatment as a result.

Reports in Argentina say the forward could face up to two months out with his injuries, following the accident involving the Chrysler PT Cruiser he was being driven in. 

Earlier on Thursday evening, Aguero took to Instagram to post an image of himself alongside Maluma, thanking the Colombian star for the invitation to the concert, held at the city’s AFAS Live venue, which sits in the shadow of Ajax’s Amsterdam Arena. 

Maluma also posted an image of Aguero signing a Manchester City shirt for him, with the caption ‘long live football and friendship, thanks for the detail’.

City have yet to comment on the report but his former club in Argentina, Independiente, said on Twitter: ‘Strength and fast recovery. All Independiente is with you at this difficult time.’

Aguero has been in sparkling form so far this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions and moving just a goal shy of Eric Brook’s all-time scoring record for City.
