Barcelona are reportedly targeting Sergio Agüero for free now that the Manchester City legend is in the final six months of his contract with the club.
Aguero has made just three starts this season due to injury, but his qualities are recognized as absolutely top-notch and without a transfer fee the deal would be a no-brainer.
The Argentine is still waiting for City to offer him a new contract, which is understood to be his preference, but if he does not arrive, he can go to the Catalan club. His current contract status means that he is free to negotiate with foreign clubs this month, and according to Sun.That has alerted Ronald Koeman’s team, who are eager to bring the former Atlético de Madrid forward back to La Liga.
The Barça coach replaced Luis Suárez with Ansu Fati, who turned out to be a great acquisition before suffering a knee injury in November. Subsequently, he has tried Martin Braithwaite, Antoine Griezmann and even Lionel Messi as a central figure, but if the latter chooses to stay at the Camp Nou, there is a possibility that he will join his compatriot and close friend Agüero.
In fact, Agüero has previously revealed that he and Messi are like an old couple when they are together in international service.
These Barcelona claims come right in the middle of reports in France claiming that new Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino is eager to seal a sensational move for Agüero and Messi this summer.
