Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has returned to the Spanish La Liga. The Argentine has completed his move to Barcelona on a two-year contract. The 32 former Atletico Madrid player left Manchester City after 10 years with the English Premier League side.
Sergio Aguero Makes Spanish La Liga Return
Sergio Aguero left the club as their all-time leading highest goal-scorer with 260 goals in 390 games. He scored a brace in his last English Premier League, which was his farewell game, although he came from the bench. The player will have a buyout clause of 100m euros (£86m) at Barcelona.
During his time in Manchester, Aguero won 15 major trophies and will join compatriot and close friend Lionel Messi at the Nou Camp as the Catalan club look to improve on a third-place finish in La Liga. Barcelona hopes to use his presence to keek their star player Lionel Messi, looking to leave the club when his contract expires.
They have lacked a clinical attacker since they released Luis Suarez for just 6m euros (£5.2m) at the start of last season. Aguero is the first of the four Barcelona targets to land Camp Nou. They are also interested in Machester City centre-back Eric Garcia, Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay before the league resume in Arguest.
