MANCHESTER CITY star Sergio Aguero has been involved in a nasty car crash ahead of this weekend’s clash with Crystal Palace.
The Argentine striker, 31, is said to be OK after what is being called a “minor prang” – but his £150,000 Range Rover was left in a mangled wreck.
The legendary striker – who already has league-high eight goals to his name this season – was not away on international duty during the fortnight off, instead staying in Manchester.
Aguero has been training at the Etihad Campus during the two weeks away from club football – having sustained an injury preventing him from joining his country.
And he was on his way there this morning when the accident is said to have occurred, leaving his car in an ugly way.

This is not the first time Aguero has been involved in a dramatic car crash either.
Two years ago, the Man City star cheated death – left only with broken ribs – after the taxi he was travelling in ploughed into a lamppost in Amsterdam.
At the time, there were suggestions the Argentina star only escaped being killed in the accident because he was wearing a seat-belt.
Aguero had been making his way to the airport having watching Colombian musician Maluma live.
The ex-Atletico Madrid star was rumoured to be set to miss two months, but ultimately he missed just two matches – 14 days in total.
