Barcelona have reportedly held intense talks with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero as they close in on a deal to land Argentina on a free transfer.
Aguero is expected to become a free agent at the end of the season and his future has been the subject of much speculation lately.
This saga, however, appears to be nearing an end, with TyC Sports claiming to be edging closer to agreeing to move to Barcelona.
It is a blow to see Aguero leave the Premier League after such a brilliant career in English football, especially as he is looking for a while so he could possibly stay here for a bit longer.
TyC Sports also linked Aguero to Chelsea, though it now looks like he is heading to Camp Nou instead, where he could form an interesting partnership with his compatriot Lionel Messi.
However, Chelsea could do with a new signing front, so they now have to look for alternatives if they want to miss out on Aguero.
The Blues have never looked as challenging for a Premier League title this season because of Timo Werner’s poor form since his move from RB Leipzig last summer.
A more proven goal scorer at this level would have been ideal, with Aguero likely to have been a very decent option for a year or two.
