375 goals in more than 650 matches, 41 in 97 caps. When you see such a pedigree, it’s hard not to applaud Sergio Agüer. It is even more complicated not to place oneself on an archer of his caliber. This is what many European teams have to talk to each other as the Argentine and Manchester City have announced the end of their collaboration next June.
Ten years after coming to Citizens, “El Kun” will therefore repeat an important chapter of his career to open another. But where? For many weeks, the Argentine’s name has often been associated with FC Barcelona, where (still) his friend Lionel Messi plays. In recent days, on the side of PSG, Agüero is seen as a solution of choice to strengthen the Paris attack.
At 32 and despite severe liability for injuries, Sergio Agüero remains a reference on the Old Continent and can still provide nice services. Still, his hefty salary in the City weighs down beggars, though there will be no need to spend a trifle on transfer fees.
This salary is what makes the Independiente suspicious. Since the announcement of leaving Manchester City, the Argentine club dreams of bringing back the one who coached at the club. Despite competition from European clubs, there will be access by the Independent.
We spoke to “Yoyo” (Maldonado, general secretary of the club), they will call him to see if he will. If he wants to, it would be a pleasure for me to come back and lead him, ”coach Julio César Falcioni told TyC Sports.
The two have known each other well since his professional debut at the age of 17, Agüero played a season under Falcioni at the Independiente, something that could affect affect at the time of negotiation.
“We know each other pretty well, we spent a year together. I think we both have fond memories of that time, then we hope to cope. He won’t be able to sign something like what he wins there here, but he will come back with all his friends to defend the colors he loves, ”Falcioni said.
“I know it will be my intention to call him and offer him to come home, to come home, to be comfortable with him and to be able to help us get back. Independiente bigger.”
