Barcelona 'reach agreement' to sign Man City star Sergio Aguero with another deal close



Posted Saturday, May 22, 2021 by Express.co.uk

Barcelona look set to make a number of changes in the summer transfer window.

Barcelona have reportedly moved fast to secure the services of Sergio Aguero with the striker set to leave Manchester City as a free agent. Aguero departs the Etihad at the end of the season as one of the best players to ever pull on a City shirt.

He's the club's record goalscorer with 258 goals and will forever be linked with City's 2012 Premier League title with his dramatic late winner against QPR.

The Argentine had been strongly linked with a move to join compatriot Lionel Messi at Barcelona after news broke that City would not be giving him a new contract.

And it appears as though Barcelona have got their man ahead of the summer transfer window.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona have an 'agreement reached' with Aguero.

It is claimed the striker has signed a two-year deal which also includes a certain bonus should Barcelona win the Champions League.

And Barcelona are also said to be closing in on another soon-to-be free agent.

Memphis Depay announced that he will be leaving Lyon at the end of the season in a post on social media.

It is reported now that Depay has made it clear to his representatives that he wants to join Barcelona.

And a deal for the Holland international to move to the Nou Camp is 'getting closer'.

Guardiola is hopeful that Aguero will be fit enough for one final send off at the Etihad this weekend.

There will be 10,000 spectators inside the stadium for City's final league match of the season against Everton.

And Guardiola is confident the home fans will give Aguero the farewell he deserves.

"Being the legend that he is, coming to this country where it is so difficult to score goals and doing what he has done for so many years is incredible," Guardiola said.

"The quality of the player shows in his numbers, his performance and titles - his performances when he was fit are incredible.

"I can't imagine how many more he would have scored if he was fitter at some points in previous seasons.

"When he's fit and has continuity, in five metres he can - like a lion in the jungle - make a step to kill the opponents.

"His biggest quality is a unique sense of goal and when he's good in himself he can do whatever he wants.

"I am sure the 10,000 fans in the stadium will want to pay tribute for all the fans around the world."
