Cape Town City fans were quick to realize it was just an April Fool's joke, but were convinced that owner John Comitis could afford the 33-year-old's high wage demands.
After a fortnight break, Cape Town City are back in action on Saturday where they will face Baroka FC at Cape Town Stadium.
Aguero has been linked with a move to City's rivals Manchester United in the English Premier League.
