Sergio Aguero heads to Camp Nou, agrees to join Barcelona on a two-year deal
Aguero’s farewell will come at the club’s last home fixture against Everton on Sunday before playing the Champions League final on May 30.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has agreed to sign a two-year contract with Spanish giants FC Barcelona. With Aguero’s contract expiring in June, the move will come as a free transfer. The striker has settled for lower wages than available elsewhere for playing in Barcelona. Barcelona, who were looking for a number nine after Luis Suarez left in 2020, aim to achieve European success with Aguero. The Argentine striker is said to receive a bonus if he helps the club win the Champions League.
The 33-year-old career has been plagued by injuries, restricting him to just 18 appearances for City this season in which he could score only four goals. His farewell will come at the club’s last home fixture against Everton on Sunday before playing the Champions League final on May 30
Will give him a tribute he deserves: Pep Guardiola
” Aguero is an incredibly nice and funny person, humble being the legend he is. He was incredibly loved by the backroom staff. Sunday’s the last game, I’m sure the fans will give him a tribute to what he has done so far; titles, numbers, performances, incredible,” said Pep Guardiola.
As Aguero bids ‘citizens’ a goodbye, Pep Guardiola heaped praise at the striker. Guardiola spoke about his contributions to the club, attitude and abilities to eat up any defence while backing him to play till 40.
“He is like a lion in the jungle, he kills the opponent. The last goal versus Palace defined him. He controlled two or three steps then wow. So much speed and then the quality to make the goal, he has this quality. He could play until 40 and score
