Barcelona have accelerated talks between them and striker Sergio Aguero as they seek his services in the coming season.
The Argentine will be a free agent in the summer after revealing that he will be leaving Man City at the end of the season and there are teams already looking for his services.
Barcelona re believed to be one of the teams after the player and despite earlier reports suggesting that they were not keen to bring the Argentine owing to his wage demands, Diario Sport indicates that the Catalonia side are keen to bring the play onboard as they think he will be cheaper considering the strikers they want will have to be bought.
The said players on their radar are demanding almost the same amount as Aguero with the club not keen to spend more on players due to the effect of Covid on their finances.
According to the reports, there is an acceptance that Aguero would have to fit within the wage budget of Barcelona but the absence of a transfer fee and his level of play are said to be attractive to the club.
Aguero will celebrate his 33rd birthday in June but there is still hope that he can operate at the top level of European football for two more seasons
