Manchester City are in dire need of a new world-class striker to replace their aging legend, Aguero but are having a difficult time finding one.
There is no denying that Sergio Aguero is the greatest striker to have ever played for Manchester City and one of the greatest to have ever played in the Premier League. However, no one can become a permanent player as age catches up with us all and at the age of 32, Aguero has started to show his weaknesses. The English club needs to find a replacement for the goal-scoring machine but former player, Danny Mills suggests that the club might have a torrid in trying to do so.
The Argentine striker is not getting any younger and his age has been a huge factor for his downgrade in performance. Aguero used to be one of the most consistent players on the pitch but in recent season, injuries have stopped him from performing his best. Gabriel Jesus was supposed to be his successor but after three years with the club, he could never surpass the Argentine and it has become very clear that the Brazilian lacks the clinical vision and precision of his teammate.
Replacing the all-time goal scorer is going to be an ordeal but they cannot push back the inevitable any longer. According to Mills they must acknowledge this situation and work accordingly. This is what he had to say on the topic during an interview with GentigBet,
Replacing Aguero has always been an issue for Manchester City, because how do you replace him? [Gabriel] Jesus is a very good player who works very hard but he’s not Aguero and if Aguero is missing for any length of time, you do worry a little bit about City.
Pep Guardiola refused to bring in any reinforcements for the forwards this transfer window as he focused more upon sorting out his defensive issues. However, it may be time that the Spanish manager contemplates bringing in a new first-team striker. Now that they have sorted out their defense with the introduction of Ruben Diaz, Pep must decide whether he trusts Jesus enough to play him regularly or will he splash the cash for a new world-class striker.
