The former Atletico Madrid striker Argentine has stayed ten years with Manchester City and he is now set to depart the Etihad Stadium.
Sergio Aguero Close to Joining Barcelona
According to reports, the player will leave City when his deal expires at the end of the season, and he has been persistently linked with a move to Catalonia ever since. Few clubs in the English Premier League are also interested in signing the player but Sergio Aguero may be reluctant to sign for a direct rival given his affiliation with Manchester City.
The attacker has decided to return to Spain and continue his ventures in Catalonia, and he has shaken hands on a two-year agreement with the club until the summer of 2023. The report also states that adds that he will take a significant salary hit in order to play for Barcelona alongside compatriot Lionel Messi. He will be paid £4.4m a year compared to the £12m he earns at Man City.
