Barca to sign City star on pre-contract?


LaLiga giants FC Barcelona are reportedly plotting a move to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero on a pre-contract.

Aguero, who is City's all-time record goalscorer with 256 goals for the club, currently has six months remaining on his deal at the Etihad Stadium and, with no new offer on the table, looks increasingly likely to leave at the end of the season.

Despite being a key player for manager Pep Guardiola over the last few seasons, the 32-year-old has been plagued by injury during the 2020/21 campaign and Eurosport claim that the Citizens could now be considering cutting their losses on the Argentine star.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to pounce for Aguero, who is close friends with countryman and Barca captain Lionel Messi, and could offer him a pre-contract in the coming weeks in an attempt to lure his services to the Nou Camp.

However, the Blaugrana will face fierce competition from Paris Saint-Germain, whose new manager Mauricio Pochettino is said to be planning a double free-agent swoop for both Messi and Aguero at the end of the season, per AS.
