Where next for Sergio Aguero?
No one can claim Manchester City’s success better than Sergio Aguero. The Argentine striker has walked the journey to the top with the Premier League giant. In his 10 years at the club, he has found the net 257 times for Man City, placing him in the top 5 all-time EPL scorers. His announcement of leaving the club at the end of his current contract has left many EPL fans shocked. But at 32 years, Aguero says he has achieved all he can at City. Offers are flowing in, and his fans eagerly await his next move.
Aguero started his professional footballing career at Atletico Madrid, but it is at Manchester City where he defined himself as one of the finest players in big league football. Since then, the Argentine has been nothing short of phenomenal. He has odds of 123/100 as a goalscorer in the upcoming game against Leicester City on the Easter weekend. We recommend taking a look at NBS UK for the best betting odds and latest odds.
Under three coaches, Aguero has been there as the City took all major titles in English football. They have collected four Premier League titles and are on the way to the fifth. They have taken five EFL Cups and one FA Cup.
Aguero took the Golden Boot in the 2014/2015 season, in which he had 34 G/A making him the highest goalscorer of the season. He is among the very few EPL players to have scored five goals in one game, a feat achieved against Newcastle. He will exit City as their highest goalscorer, having placed the ball in the net 257 times in 384 games in English football.
Flood of Offers
At 32 years, there is still plenty of play left in Aguero. The big names in football are all eager to have him in their ranks. The strongest rumors are that Aguero is keen to join Nou Camp, where he can spend his sunset years alongside his long-time friend Messi. Their friendship goes back to their early days in football as young charges in Argentina’s national Under-20 team. Barca has a strong incentive to sign Aguero since they are keen to see Messi stay in the team. Club president Joan Laporta says he is pulling no stops to make Messi stay, including bringing in his fellow countryman.
Paris Saint-Germain have taken an interest in Aguero after their star striker Kylian Mbappe also gave them a shocker notice to exit this summer. They are frantic to replace him with a top striker of similar pedigree. In PSG, Aguero would be in the fine company of several fellow Argentines, including coach Mauricio Pochettino. Others are Mauro Icardi and Angel di Maria.
Serie-A champions Juventus would love to have a striker to take the pressure off Cristiano Ronaldo, seeing as it is that he is fast approaching old age in football. There are rumors that CR7 is on his way out to possibly Real Madrid. It would leave the Old Lady reliant on the hot-and-cold Morata, which makes it more urgent to have a striker of Aguero’s experience.
Aguero could also retrace his footsteps to his first club in Europe, Atletico Madrid. They would be glad to have him back. Currently, the Los Rojiblancos are riding high with the firepower of Luis Suarez, Joao Felix, and Moussa Dembele. They are not exactly desperate for another striker, but Aguero would partner well with any of these strikers.
The biggest surprise would be a move across the city to Old Trafford. It would make upcoming Manchester derbies very interesting. Manchester United are also keen to have a quality striker because Edinson Cavani’s future at the club is not guaranteed. Aguero has developed strong roots in Manchester, including an enthusiastic fanbase. He could opt to stay instead of starting all over.
America’s Major League Soccer would love the star power of Aguero, and could lure him with big money just like they did with Beckham, Henry, and Ibrahimović. Aguero could also opt to spend his waning days in football playing in his home country. He is nostalgically attached to his boyhood club, Independiente. But it all depends on how much the 32-year-old feels he has left to offer European football. His fans are waiting eagerly to hear of his next move.
