A number of players are spiralling into the final six months of their contract with their respective clubs, and Sergio Aguero is one of them. The Manchester City ace, who is yet due to agree and start anew with the Citizens will soon be having his deal expire this summer.
This means that the Argentine international, at the end of the season, will be a free agent and can hence tour any European clubs outside Etihad stadium.
According to a number of reports, this Aguero situation has somehow aroused the interest of FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, who seem eager to sign the 32-year-old forward on a free transfer.
Aguero left Atletico Madrid and joined hands with City in 2011, but the Catalan giants are somehow tempted to bring him back to Spain.
Today amidst having a rough start to the season due to injuries, Aguero has still renowned himself as one of the best players of this generation. And after nailing Brighton by 1-0 at home yesterday, Pep Guardiola and his men now find themselves sit 3rd in the table. They’re just 4 points below arch-rivals and new Premier League leaders, Manchester United.
PSG also in the race to sign Aguero along with Barcelona?
Former Tottenham Spur boss Mauricio Pochettino, who recently replaced Thomas Tuchel at PSG, sees Aguero as a great fit for the team’s attack alongside Mauro Icardi and Moise Kean.
And ever since his debut for the English club, the Argentine has been in his prime time. He has been City’s major goal scorer and best striker, for having scored 180 goals in a total of 268 appearances.
And during these nine years with the Sky Blues, he has won the most important silverware — like four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and five EFL Cup trophies. He, along with Leo Messi, has also represented his nation in the 2008 summer Olympics in Beijing, FIFA World Cup, and Copa America.
Manager Pep Guardiola has regarded him as “irreplaceable” and “one of the most important player” of the squad.
However the boss has also commented on the striker’s future at the club,
“I am sorry, when Sergio decides to leave Manchester City, it will be his decision. I appreciate him like a football player and appreciate like a man what he did here.”
“He is a guy who deserves with the club fair talks to decide what is the best for him, for the club, for everyone.”— Pep Guardiola on Sergio Aguero and his uncertain future at the club
However, with the transfer window closed, it will be very bold of Manchester City to not offer Aguero another contract. Nevertheless, no compromise should be made in regards to his future, especially in the ongoing crazy chase for the title.
