Free at the end of the season, Agüero has no shortage of contenders. After PSG and Barça, it is his training club that wishes to enlist him.
375 goals in more than 650 matches, 41 in 97 caps. When you see such a pedigree, it’s hard not to applaud Sergio Agüero. It is even more complicated not to position yourself on a scorer of his caliber. This is what many European teams must be saying to each other since the Argentinian and Manchester City announced the end of their collaboration next June.
Ten years after his arrival at the Citizens, “El Kun” will therefore redo an important chapter of his career to open another. But where ? For many weeks, the name of the Argentine has often been associated with FC Barcelona, where his friend Lionel Messi (still) plays. In recent days, it is on the side of PSG that Agüero has been seen as a solution of choice to strengthen the Parisian attack.
At 32 years old and despite a heavy injury record, Sergio Agüero remains a reference on the Old Continent and can still render nice services. Still, his hefty salary at City is a drag on his suitors, though there won’t be any need to spend a dime on transfer fees.
This salary is what makes the Independiente doubtful. Since the announcement of his departure from Manchester City, the Argentine club dream of bringing back the one who was trained at the club. Despite the competition from European clubs, there will be an approach made on the part of the Independent.
“We spoke to ‘Yoyo’ (Maldonado, general secretary of the club), they will call him to see if he wants. If he wants, it would be a pleasure to come back to lead him.” , coach Julio César Falcioni told TyC Sports.
The two men know each other well because after making his professional debut at the age of 17, Agüero played for a season under Falcioni at the Independiente, enough to play on the affect at the time of negotiations.
“We know each other pretty well, we spent a year together. I think we both have fond memories of that time so hopefully we can handle it. Here he won’t be able to sign something similar to this. that he wins there, but he will be back with all his friends to defend the colors he loves “, Falcioni said.
“I know there will be an intention to call him and offer to come home, come home, that he can be comfortable and that he can help us make it. Independiente larger. ”
