Barcelona have been linked to Kun Aguero, the Manchester City striker who is leaving at the end of the season, but Ronald Koeman does not want him.
The Dutch coach, SPORT have learned, is sticking with his initial posture and does not want the 32 year old Argentine forward. The Dutch coach would rather bring in Memphis Depay from Lyon, also for free.
He believes that his compatriot would adapt better to the system and can be used in various positions. Depay would also be more accepting of a bench role at times than Aguero.
The arrival of either Depay or Aguero is independent of the club’s desire to sign Erling Haaland. The Norwegian is the chosen man to be Barca’s main striker next term.
