The contacts between Sergio Agüero and Barça would be more and more concrete. According to Tyc Sports, the Catalan club have already put a two-year contract on the table of the Argentine striker.
Sergio Agüero and Barça are getting hot. At the end of his contract with Manchester City in two months, the Argentine striker knows that his story will no longer be written on the side of the Etihad Stadium. But, at 32, the man with 257 goals in 385 appearances for the Sky Blues jersey still has some under his belt.

According to information from the Argentinian television channel Tyc Sports, the “Kun” would be very close to engaging with Barça. “Very intense” negotiations have reportedly taken place in recent days. The Catalan club have reportedly already offered a two-year contract to the former Atlético striker and the decision would be in the player’s hands.
A good sign for Messi’s extension?
In this case, Barça will have to face competition from English clubs but also and above all from Juventus Turin. According to Tyc Sports, the Old Lady, whose financial health is better than that of the Blaugrana, would be in a strong position in the negotiations because she could offer the Cityzens striker a higher salary.
As our Argentinian colleagues point out, a possible arrival of Sergio Aguëro, very close to Lionel Messi, could be a good sign in the context of the extension of the “Pulga” in Catalonia. There would indeed be two hypotheses: either the Manchester City striker would decide to join Barça because he was assured that the six-time Ballon d’Or will stay in Catalonia, or the arrival of the Argentina international would be a more argument to convince Lionel Messi to stay.
