He would probably have liked to leave by offering Manchester City the first Champions League in its history. But, in the end, Sergio Agüero will only leave for a Premier League title, which is already not so bad. Less used this season, the Argentinian knew that the end was near for the Citizens. On top of that, he is at the end of his contract.
We wondered where he could land. For a long time, he seems to give his preference to England, the country that has welcomed him since leaving Atlético de Madrid in 2011. But ten years have passed and the prospect of finally being able to play with his friend, Lionel Messi, at FC Barcelona, was perhaps too tall.
He has a Spanish passport
It is known that the Catalans have some financial problems and especially that they have not really replaced Luis Suarez, who left last summer for the Colchoneros. The opportunity was therefore too good and it was not really difficult to convince the one who has had a Spanish passport since 2010 to join Catalonia and the team of Ronald Koeman.
« FC Barcelona and Sergio Agüero have reached an agreement regarding the player’s arrival on July 1, once his contract with Manchester City is over. The player will sign a contract until 2023 and will have a release clause of 100 million euros. “, Can we read on the press release of the Blaugranas. The FCB therefore strikes a first big blow while waiting perhaps for other elements like Georginio Wijnaldum or Eric Garcia.
