AGUERO SET TO SIGN BARCELONA CONTRACT
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is closing in on a free transfer move to Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona where he will link up with international teammate and friend Lionel Messi. According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Sergio Aguero has agreed a two-year deal with the Catalans until the end of the 2022/23 season and that he would join them as a free agent when his current Manchester City deal expires next month.
Aguero joined Manchester City from Spanish club Atletico Madrid at the start of the 2011/12 campaign and he was the recipient of the most dramatic Premier League goal in the history of the competition. The 32-year-old attacker scored with virtually the last kick of the season to win a first Premier League title for Manchester City.
Sergio Aguero scored in added time to win the QPR game for the Citizens and also win the league in the process. The Argentine scored the third and final goal of the game as Manchester City came from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers (QPR) 3-2 at home to win the title.
Manchester City needed to beat relegation threatened QPR at the Etihad Stadium to fend off city rivals Manchester United for the Premier League and they almost threw it away despite taking the lead. QPR also needed to win the game to be sure that they won’t suffer demotion to the English Championship and they scored twice to lead 2-1 into the final minutes of the game.
Bosnia and Herzegovina striker EdinDzeko scored the equaliser for Manchester City via a header from the corner kick before Aguero produced the winning goal to win the game for his team.
Aguero has since added four more Premier League titles in the colours of Manchester City in addition to being the leading goalscorer in the history of the club.
Apart from Barcelona, Chelsea and former club Atletico Madrid have also been linked with a move for him. The Catalans have already won the race to sign him ahead of the other interested teams.
