That means he could have a chance of returning to action in Saturday's Premier League clash against Stoke at the Etihad Stadium.

Messi has a new deal on the table from Barcelona worth around £500,000-a-week.

The City striker missed the game as he continues his recovery from a fractured rib suffered in a vehicle crash in Amsterdam.

The Argentine forward, who suffered a broken rib in a vehicle crash in Amsterdam towards the end of September, was unsure on when he would return due to the sensitive nature of the injury.

Following criticism for his decision to go to Amsterdam in the days building up to City's important fixture against Chelsea, Aguero has defended his actions saying players often go overseas on their days off.

City said on their website: "Man City fans will be delighted to learn Sergio Aguero returned to training on Tuesday morning".

"He said, "I don't believe so".

The 29-year-old is just one goal short of Eric Brook's 78-year record of 177 goals for the club.

"Then one thinks 'why did I [go]', but it's hard to imagine that something like that could happen".

Meanwhile, Aguero dismissed reports that he is set to join AC Milan, with City said to be chasing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Because of the injury, the Argentina global was unable to feature in his nation's crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador. "I thanked him for what he is doing for the World Cup".
