Sergio Aguero could be heading to Barcelona, according to Pablo Zabaleta.
Manchester City’s agreement with the striker ends in June and there has been no movement over an extension.
Aguero came on to feature in the Premier League win over Fulham, wrapping up the night with a goal from the penalty spot. Pep Guardiola has maintained that the forward still holds an important place in his squad. After all, he is City’s record goalscorer.
Barcelona are reportedly targeting strikers and a free transfer for Aguero would be a steal. He is still only 32 years with the potential to give at least a few more seasons at top level. After Luis Suarez’s departure, Ronald Koeman has been calling out for a striker signing.
Aguero’s former teammate, Pablo Zabaleta believes the forward is destined to land up at Camp Nou. He said, “If you ask me what I think will happen, for me it is very difficult to imagine Messi outside Barcelona. We all hope that he will retire there.
“They have had elections and now there is a new president. It is clear that he (Joan Laporta) wants to convince Messi to stay. And one of the main reasons they can give Messi to stay is to sign Agüero, his best friend.”
