At the end of his contract with Manchester City, Sergio Agüero will return to Spain. The FC Barcelona leaders have reached an agreement with the Argentine striker and a date has already been set for his transfer to Catalonia.
Sergio Aguero’s transfer made official after the C1 final?
“I hope he can go to where he wants to be and play the last years of his career at a high level. I will never forget him, he helped me a lot and it’s a pleasure to work with him,” said Pep Guardiola after Manchester City‘s victory over Crystal Palace (2-0). The Spanish coach made official the departure of Sergio Aguero at the end of the season.
Free of any contract, the Argentine will try to relaunch himself under other skies. According to the information of Mundo Deportivo, the former striker of Atletico Madrid will join FC Barcelona. The agent of the Argentine striker and the Blaugrana have agreed on a contract for two seasons. And his arrival in Catalonia would be a matter of days. The source says that the 32-year-old should sign for Barça after the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea in Porto on May 29. The “Kun” seems to be well on his way to becoming the first recruit of the Laporta era at Barça.
A decisive recruit for the extension of Messi?
The arrival of Sergio Aguero in Catalonia is especially seen as an essential element for the extension of Lionel Messi. His friendship with Leo (since their meeting with the U17 of the Argentine national team) could push the Barça star to extend his adventure in Catalonia.
For the moment, Lionel Messi, target of PSG, has not yet extended his contract expiring next June with FC Barcelona. But the Catalan management is working on the file. Other recruits, including Memphis Depay (Olympique Lyonnais), are also expected in Catalonia.
