Sergio Aguero would demand too much of a salary from clubs that covet him according to different media.
Sergio Aguero is on the lookout for a new club for next season after announcing he will be leaving Manchester City when his contract expires in June.
The Argentine, AS said, is torn between staying in the Premier League at a club like Chelsea or Manchester United or moving to other clubs in Europe.
Barcelona have been heavily associated with El Kun, with Joan Laporta considering teaming him up with dear friend Lionel Messi, while Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have also been mentioned.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Aguero intends to capitalize on his status as a free player and make the most of any potential signing. Despite being nearly 33 years old and fortunate enough to have a far from exemplary injury record, he wants his latest contract in Europe to fund a golden retirement and asked Juventus for 12million euros per season to sign for them.
Italians consider it high given the financial fallout from the pandemic and Aguero’s age.
They are not alone, because with that kind of money, neither Barcelona nor PSG would seriously consider themselves in the running. Such a salary is pre-pandemic in every sense of the word, and ultimately the market will mark its best option.
As a reminder, City manager Pep Guardiola is not looking to persuade Aguero in one way or another, even if that means seeing him line up against City next season.
“We wish the best for him – all of us,” Guardiola replied when asked if he would be worried about Aguero remaining in the Premier League.
“Finding the best for Sergio for the last years of his career, that’s for sure. We will be delighted with the decision he makes, the best for him, his family and his career. My preference is his preference. His preference is my preference. The best for him is the best for us. “
