It was an unspoken secret but now it's fact; Kun Aguero will be leaving Man City at the end of the season. The Argentine is one of the more attractive free signings on the market this summer. Top European sides are making contact with him, including FC Barcelona. On Monday, the first key movement was made to start a battle that will be intense - his official statement about leaving the club.
Aguero’s departure will have an impact in the market in various ways. The first, his destination. He’s 32 and has not played much this season because of injury but he thinks he can keep competing at the top level and wants an elite footballing project.
The fact that he can come for free will allow him a big signing on fee and despite last season, his goalscoring history means there will be plenty of interest.
Barca, PSG and Juventus are the clubs best positioned to sign a player who has hit 375 goals in 652 games in his career.
Barcelona’s economic situation makes it a bit hard for them to bring him in but there will be a way to link him with Leo Messi if that is what president Joan Laporta and Co wants.
Messi and Aguero are friends and the Barca captain could be a way of luring him away from bigger offers to come to Catalonia.
