Manchester City have announced that the club’s all-time leading scorer Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season.
According to reports, Barcelona have an agreement in place that will see Aguero join the club on a free transfer.
“City will bid a fond and emotional farewell to legendary striker Sergio Aguero when his contract expires this summer,” the club said in a statement.
“Treasured by City fans and a global icon of the game, Aguero is one of the most decorated and respected footballers to wear the sky-blue shirt.
“He joined City in the summer of 2011, making an immediate impact by scoring twice and creating an assist on his thirty-minute cameo debut in a 4-0 home win over Swansea City. It was a dramatic and impressive start that gave an indication of what was to follow.
“One renowned such moment would include his heart-stopping goal in the unforgettable final game of that same season against QPR which secured the Club’s first ever Premier League title.”
