Premier League leaders Manchester City have confirmed that Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires, which means he will be available on a free transfer.
The Argentine international has reportedly received offers from Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan.
According to Spanish media outlet Marca via Metro UK, Aguero is keen on joining Spanish giants Barcelona because of the prospect of linking up with Lionel Messi, who he is close friends with following their time together with Argentina’s national team.
Despite Aguero’s preference to join Barcelona, the head coach of the Spanish club Ronald Koeman will prefer to sign Memphis Depay, while Barca’s president Joan Laporta wants to prioritise the signing of Erling Haaland.
