Man City legend Sergio Aguero’s ‘secret’ Barcelona move confirmed by Pep Guardiola
The Argentine bid farewell to City with two goals on Sunday as the newly crowned Premier League champions thrashed Everton 5-0, and could add the Champions League trophy to their cabinet on Saturday.
City’s all-time top goalscorer had been heavily linked with a free transfer to Barcelona once his contract expires this summer and his boss Guardiola – a former manager of the LaLiga giants – confirmed it was his likely destination.
“I’m pretty sure – maybe I reveal a secret – he is close to agreeing a deal for the club of my heart, for Barcelona,” Guardiola told BBC’s Match of the Day.
“He is going to be playing alongside the best player of all time, Lionel Messi.
“I’m pretty sure he is going to enjoy. And maybe Barcelona are stronger and stronger with him on the pitch.”
