Sergio Aguero is near signing a deal with Barcelona, uncovered Pep Guardiola on Sunday.
The manager completely supported the move, saying Aguero would give an enormous lift to the Spanish giant’s attack. He added that he was happy Aguero could play “alongside the best player of all time, Messi”.
Aguero bid a passionate goodbye to Manchester City on Sunday with his agreement set to expire, scoring twice in a 5-0 triumph over Everton.
What has been said?
“Maybe I reveal a secret,” Guardiola told BBC. “Maybe he is close to agreeing a deal for the club of my heart – for Barcelona.
“He is going to be playing alongside the best player of all time, Messi.
“I’m pretty sure he is going to enjoy. And maybe Barcelona are stronger and stronger with him on the pitch.”
Why is Aguero leaving Manchester City?
The striker long ago established himself as a club legend, so it very well may be amazing to see him leave with little opposition.
In any case, the two parties concurred that playing time would be hard to get at the Etihad Stadium pushing ahead, and by switching teams this mid-year, he would now be able to begin on his next chapter without losing significant time meanwhile.
The exit has been effortless, with Manchester City giving him an emotional send-off that included partners lifting him over their heads in acknowledgment of his significance to the association.
