Manchester City’s Agüero to join Barça on two-year deal
Barcelona, Spain, May 31 (EFE).- Manchester City striker Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero is set to join Barcelona on a two-year deal.
The Argentina international will transfer to the Catalan giants once his contract with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City expires on 1 July, Barça said in a statement.
He will have a buyout clause of 100 million euros, the club added.
The 33-year-old joined Manchester City in 2011, where he capped off his debut season with a last-minute goal in the final game to clinch the title for the Cityzens.
His last game for City came against Chelsea in the Uefa Champions League final.
Before moving to northwest England, he plied his trade with LaLiga’s Atlético Madrid.
His professional career began at Independiente, where he became the youngest player ever to make an appearance in Argentina’s top-flight at 15 years and 35 days.
In his 10 years at Manchester City, Agüero has scored 260 goals and won 15 trophies, including five Premier League titles and an FA Cup. He is the all-time top foreign goalscorer in the Premier League. EFE
