Spanish giants Barcelona are still interested in signing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero on a free transfer.
Aguero announced in March that he would be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season once his contract with the Champions-elect expires. Barca and Aguero's representatives have held initial talks over a possible move to the Nou Camp.
The Argentine has since been linked with European heavy-hitters Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, as well as Premier League rivals Chelsea.
As reported by Sky Sports, Barcelona have taken the first step in signing Aguero. They’ve contacted Aguero’s agent and held initial talks with his team about the possibility of a move this summer.
The 32-year-old has netted 258 goals in 387 appearances in all competitions.
Sergio Aguero would be prepared to reduce his salary while playing at Barcelona... and of course with Leo Messi. There’s still no agreement completed or signed - the club will decide about Aguero, Depay and other targets only at the end of the season. 🔵🔴 #FCB @MatteMoretto https://t.co/UEV4XJmkoH— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 6, 2021
