Barcelona are advised to recruit Argentine striker Sergio Aguero in the transfer market next summer, because the former Atletico Madrid presence is believed to make Messi consider the option to stay at Camp Nou.
As is known, Lionel Messi still has not agreed to a new contract offered by Barcelona. This fact makes the future of La Pulga still a puzzle to this day.
Meanwhile, on the one hand, Sergio Aguero is certain to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer, the news has also been confirmed by Manchester City.
Aguero’s departure was none other than because his contract which ended in June 2021 was not extended by the club.
This means that Sergio Aguero will be on a free transfer this summer, which allows European clubs to recruit him without a penny.
Indeed, Aguero is now 32 years old, but his performance on the pitch is still very reliable. The record of 257 goals he recorded while strengthening the Citizens can still be used as evidence of his sharpness.
So, is Barcelona one of the clubs interested in Sergio Aguero? Nobody knows, but one thing is for sure, the Catalan giants need a pure striker after Luis Suarez left last summer.
Barcelona already has a line of top attackers such as Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele, but the recruitment of Sergio Aguero is believed to make Lionel Messi will cancel his intention to leave.
The reason is, apart from being a teammate in the Argentine National Team, Messi and the former Atletico Madrid are also known to be close friends.
“Messi and Aguero are old friends. They shared the same room back in 2005, when Argentina won the U-20 World Cup and they had a real relationship,”
“Since then, they both became good friends. When they play for the national team, you can see the relationship between the two players and they are on one frequency.” South American football expert Tim Vickery told talkSPORT.
