Sergio Aguero will depart the Etihad Stadium as a five time Premier League champion and as Manchester City’s leading goalscorer. 

He may even depart with a Champions League winners medal and a Hollywood style ending with one final ‘Aguerooooo’ moment could still be on the cards for the Argentinean.

Aguero arrived in England eleven years ago with a bustling reputation as one of the best strikers in the World, but even the most optimistic City fans would not have been able to predict just how enormous he would be for the Citizens.

There is even arguments and cause to suggest he was one of the greatest ever foreign imports in Premier League history.

He has the same amount of Premier League winners medals as the likes of Wayne Rooney and John Terry, and has even more than Eric Cantona, who was recently inducted into the Premier League hall of fame – could Aguero be in the running in joining that illustrious club?

Maybe – nevertheless, any decision on that would likely be made upon the striker’s retirement, and according to Spanish sports outlet Mundo Deportivo, Aguero’s time at the highest level is not yet finished as he is likely to link up with Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Messi and Aguero won an Olympic Gold medal for Argentina in the 2008 Beijing Olympics

Reports from Spain suggest his move to the Nou Camp is “80%” done and he could be set to form a terrifying attacking line of Messi, and Antoine Griezmann.

It could also be suggested Aguero’s arrival could be another incentive for Messi to remain at the Nou Camp as the two are very good friends, with the Barcelona captain even being the godfather to Aguero’s son Benjamin.

Messi tried to force a move out of Barcelona last season but pledged to remain until the expiration of his contract to avoid a messy (pun not intended) court process.

Aguero’s arrival could change this state of affairs and with the Coronavirus damaging all clubs and hampering football’s finances and economics, it would be difficult to find a team who can afford Messi’s astronomical wages.
