Sergio Aguero is reportedly open to a shock Premier League switch after his Man City exit which has been confirmed for this summer.
The 32 year old Argentine is happy to stay in the top tier of English football after leaving Manchester City at the end of the season and is leaving his options open.
So much so that there are claims a shock move to Tottenham Hotspur is one of the possibilities in front of him.
The 32-year-old will leave the Etihad Stadium after 10 fantastic years at the club and is on his way to signing off with a fifth Premier League title, and possibly three more silverware.
Pep Guardiola’s side are still on for the quadruple, which would be the best way to end Aguero’s astonishing time at the club.
Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move for the prolific striker, wanting to link him up with international teammate Lionel Messi, but Aguero is reportedly happy to stay in England and the Premier League.
Clearly his options in the English top flight are realistically very few and the Telegraph report that Chelsea and Tottenham are two of the most realistic available to him.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not ruled out a move for Aguero, but says he does not believe the striker would ‘want to go to a local rival.’
Mikel Arteta has ruled out Arsenal making an offer for the player, while Liverpool have shown no interest as yet, leaving Tottenham and Chelsea as the remaining realistic options.
City Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak has revealed that a statue of the City striker has been commissioned to stand alongside those currently in work to honour Sergio’s former team-mates David Silva and Vincent Kompany. His legend will further be marked by the installation of dedicated and permanent mosaic at the City Football Academy.
Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the last 10 years cannot be overstated. His legend will be indelibly etched into the memories of everyone who loves the Club and maybe even in those who simply love football.
“This is not yet the moment for farewell words and speeches. There is still much to achieve in the remainder of the time we have with Sergio, and we look forward to his contributions to the challenges which lay ahead.
“In the meantime, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we will be commissioning an artist to create a statue of Sergio to live at the Etihad Stadium alongside the ones under construction for Vincent and David. And we look forward to the opportunity to bid Sergio a fitting farewell at the end of the season.”
The Club will now begin work on plans to mark his departure on the final home game of the 2020/21 season against Everton, when it is hoped that thousands of supporters will be permitted to attend Etihad Stadium to pay tribute to his extraordinary contribution and achievements.
Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero can end a glorious decade with City on a high.
The City boss was also asked if the discussion about Aguero’s immediate future was tough, he admitted it was exactly that, and more.
“Of course it was difficult,” said Pep.
“It was difficult with Joe Hart when I arrived. Joe didn’t deserve it – but I had to make the decision and as a manager, we have to make decisions.
“It was not easy, but it was not hard because I have a good relationship with Sergio and what we decided is best for this club, it is simple.
“But we still have two months -and the two training sessions since he knew he was incredible.
“And he will help us between now and the end of the season.”
The boss also added he is not planning on anybody arriving to take Sergio’s place this summer, saying the finance of all clubs had suffered during the global pandemic.
“I understand completely the situation for our club and all the clubs,” said Pep.
“We are not going to do any specific things the club cannot do.
“In that moment if you ask me honestly what is going to happen (regarding incoming transfers), I will say it won’t happen.
“All the clubs are struggling and we are not an exception.
“I have always been OK with this team and the players I have – even in the first season when we didn’t win any trophies and 10 or11 players over 30.
“I am lucky to have players and my duty is to use the players my club provides and give the best for the team and club and when the club says we can do it, OK – if they say we can’t, we are not going to do it.
“The most important thing is to be sustainable over the years. We haven’t spent incredible figures and that is what we will, continue to do.
“When I hear we will sign four strikers… it is not going to happen we will stay with players we have.”
Fans reacted after seeing that Sergio Aguero is open to a shock Premier League switch after his Man City exit…
@EmenaIo: ‘He’s finished’ brudda could have one leg and he’d still comfortably be our best striker if Giroud leaves.
@MundyBison: People genuinely saying no to this? What imaginary player do people want?!
@boobsoverbooks: BRING HIM INNNN
@VintageSpurs_: Aguero. No thanks. Injury prone, big wages and will want 2-3 year contract. Bonkers. #coys #thfc
@PaulNev: Still won’t win a trophy
@CitehViking: Kane wont be there though.
@thfc_josh_: A big game player and a 3rd goal scorer, yes please
@JimClar85258964: perfect backup and can also play striker while kane is behind him in the 10 role. do it.
@billytheyido: We’ve got enough injury plagued Argentinians thanks 👍
@JJcoda: Would make sense. Could send back vinicius and bale.
@ZachR_Thfc: idc what anyone says this will be class
@8Cherrington403: What’s the point of getting Sergio Aguero if it’s the back four which is Tottenhams problems?
@lanceamazabody: This could be our chance to sign a world class striker!
@singh_04ankit: I am the only one happy with this? Rather him on free than buy vinicius for 15-20m. Invest that money in CB. Although wlhe wasn’t the player i wanted from city on free. Try getting fernandinho too. He is class.
@GaryLDN: The arrogance of our fan base 😂 “no thanks”
@painthfc: We’re not good enough to turn our noses up at potentially getting Sergio Aguero on a free. Just saying.
@RadziCOYS: Are you telling me we are swapping Harry Kane for Sergio Aguero? Can we just keep Kane & sign Aguero?
@tom_spur: I rate agüero and I’d take him in a heartbeat, bit why’d he come to us? He’s still quality and he’d sit on the bench at Spurs. He’ll have many options where he’d start Sergio Aguero? Can we just keep Kane & sign Aguero?
@jcollinsthfc: Why would people not want Aguero wtf
@pinksly34: Would be a great signing for Spurs
@thfcdeIe: Decent backup tbf
@iankl22: Seems like a no brainer to me. Imagine Scarlett and Parrott learning off Kane and Aguero
@dripwijn: Don’t do this to me. Anyone saying they wouldn’t take him is an idiot
