The legend of Man City to Catalonia
Barcelona newcomer must secure Messi’s whereabouts
Sergio Aguero did not get a new contract from Manchester City, Barcelona is using that. On the one hand, to bridge a gap of self, and on the other hand, perhaps persuade Lionel Messi to stay. It is literally a monument in England.
FC Barcelona prominently and cheaply strengthened their team for their next post-tournament reach. Global striker Sergio “Kuhn” Aguero came to German national goalkeeper club Marc-Andre ter Stegen from English champions Manchester City and the Champions League final Manchester City in a free transfer. According to the Catalans, the Argentine got a contract until 2023, two days before his 33rd birthday at the start of the week, stipulating a penalty clause of 100 million euros.
Observers also see Aguero’s signature as a strong indication of an imminent contract extension for Lionel Messi. Aguero is a good friend of his fellow countryman. After several disagreements in recent months, indications have increased lately that the former world soccer player may sign a new contract with the traditional Catalan club, contrary to his originally stated intentions. Before last season, Barcelona abandoned presumably elderly striker, Luis Suarez, who then made a major contribution to Atletico Madrid’s victory in the title.
Aguero’s departure from Manchester after ten years has been confirmed already at the end of March. The Nationals and their record player, who scored 260 goals in 390 matches, could not agree to extend their contract, which expired at the end of June. The Spanish league already knows Aguero. From 2006 to 2011, he played in Spain for the current champion Atletico, with whom he also won the European League in 2010. A type of player like Aguero was missing from Barcelona after Suarez’s forced departure.
Recently he left in Manchester
Man City thanked his record striker, who was no longer renewing his contract. Aguero has been with the club for ten years and has won 15 titles with the club, including five English championships. In 390 games for City, the Argentine has scored 260 goals, more than any other player in the club’s history. Club President Khaldoun Al Mubarak announced that the Aguero statue will be erected at the stadium.
This will end an era for club national player Ilkai Gundogan. With the son-in-law of late Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona, Manchester won the championship four times, the FA Cup once and the League Cup five times. With 184 hits, Agüero rose to the fourth best player in Premier League history.
During the season that ended, the attacking star did not play on Pep Guardiola’s team manager due to a knee injury and subsequently COVID-19 disease. In Manchester’s 1-0 Champions League final defeat last Saturday in Porto by English Premier League rivals Chelsea, only South America was substituted in the final stages.
