Man City's contract with Argentine forward Sergio Aguero expires next month. The Argentine forward has played only 18 matches this season. He has scored 4 goals. Naturally, the English club is not thinking of extending his contract with him.
Sergio Aguero has agreed to join Spanish giants Barcelona on a two-year deal. The British media The Guardian reported on Friday. However, Barcelona has not yet officially said anything.
Meanwhile, Barcelona also needs a striker. After the departure of Luis Suarez, the attacking part of the club has become much weaker. Under such circumstances, the club could not have been a better choice than Aguero, who became 'free' at the end of the season.
Aguero's salary at City was 11.97 million euros. The amount of his contract with Barcelona is heard to be 5 million Euros.
It was announced last March that Manchester City were not renewing their contract with Aguero. That's when it became clear that he would end his ten-year relationship and leave his Etihad at the end of this season.
Aguero left Spanish club Atletico Madrid in 2011 to move to City. Then he did not have to look back. In addition to establishing himself as one of the best players in City's history, he has enjoyed personal and team success.
