Last night, Manchester City officially announced that their most lethal and impactful striker, Sergio Aguero, will be leaving the club at the end of the season. The Argentine had a great 10 season-long run with the Blues side of Manchester and helped them gain the upper hand over arch-rivals Manchester United. He has given his all for the club and now the club and the player have both decided that it is time to take a step forward no matter how heart-breaking it might be.
The club announced through their Twitter and their official website that the legend will become a free agent at the end of the season and this leaves his career up for speculation by the fans and the media.
Manchester City announces that their striker will leave at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old will be leaving the English side next season but his legacy will be forever intact within the club and the league. The striker scored over 250 goals for the Sky Blues and also scored 181 goals in the Premier League making him one of the top scorers in the entire league’s history. He is only behind Wayne Rooney, Alan Shearer, and Andrew Cole in terms of goals and could have even overtaken Rooney if he had a bit more time on his side.
Aguero also won a plethora of trophies with the Citizens including four League titles, five league cups, and one FA cup. He could very well go on to win three more trophies this season and complete his second domestic treble with the club.
A Manchester City legend through and through, he will certainly be missed by all the fans of the Premier League, not just the City fans. On the topic of where he might end up next season, Barcelona looks like the ideal location.
The Catalans are looking for a high-profile striker and Aguero already has experience in La Liga. On top of that, he has a good relationship with Lionel Messi as well. He could become the team’s temporary striker until Ronald Koeman has enough budget to afford a younger talent. All in all, Barcelona would be a good way for Aguero to finish his professional football career.
