Sergio Aguero is ready to sign for Barcelona this summer
Sergio Aguero will leave Manchester City after staying for 10 years at the club. He has scored 258 goals in 388 appearances for Man City.
Barca proposed an offer to Aguero and he couldn’t deny the opportunity of playing with his international teammate Lionel Messi.
The Catalans sold their peak striker Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid. Since then, they have been looking for a new no.9 to fill Suarez’ place.
Barca came close to signing the Argentine in 2014 but decided instead to acquire Suarez. Aguero has played in La Liga before for Atletico Madrid.
Aguero recently won his 5th Premier League title with Man City, although he hasn’t played much games this year because of his injury.
In April, the 33 year old announced on his Instagram account that he will leave his most beloved club this summer. His contract with Man City is going to expire on 30th June.
On Tuesday, Laporta said that a “renewal process” will begin in the coming weeks, and it appears it will start with Aguero’s signing.
Barca also believe that Aguero’s signing would help persuade Messi to renew his contract. Leo’s contract will also expire on 30th June.
