Inter Milan join the race for Manchester City’s Argentine forward Sergio Aguero in the upcoming summer transfer window. Aguero is out of contract at the end of the season and it is believed that the Citizens won’t give him a contract extension.
Manchester City bought Sergio Aguero from La Liga side Atletico Madrid in 2011 for €40 million. Since joining at City he has scored 181 goals in 271 appearances.
Pep Guardiola believes that the striker must prove his ability to remain fit and in form. Should this prove to be the case, then an extension could be on the way.
However, with less than half of the season remaining, Manchester City’s all-time leading goal scorer has yet to show that he is capable of maintaining the required level.
The 32-years-old Argentine International has had his injury problems and positive Covid-19 case this season. Due to that he started only four matches and scored once in Premier League.
Inter Milan wants to bring Aguero to Serie A
Inter want Aguero in their squad even though they have Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez, and Alexis Sanchez. The partnership of Lukaku and Martinez has done excellent this season. They have scored 33 goals combined in Serie A.
Antonio Conte likes experienced players in his squad and because of that, he bought a few over 30-year-old players mainly from the Premier League over a couple of years at Inter.
It won’t be easy for Inter to sign Aguero as both Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are interested in him, should his contract expire at the end of the season.
The La Liga side see the forward as a potential route to retaining the service of Lionel Messi. While Ligue 1 could also be a destination for the ageing forward to see out the final years of his career.
It will be a formidable attack for Conte’s side next season if they can pull off the signature of Aguero. Nerazzurri can show their authority in Serie A for many years as Juventus did.
