La Liga: Man City’s Sergio Aguero joins La Liga giants Barcelona:Sergio Aguero will join Barcelona when his Manchester City contract expires at the end of June.
The striker leaves the Etihad with his place in the pantheon of City greats confirmed having won 15 major trophies during his ten-year stay, including five Premier League titles.
He has scored 260 goals in 390 games for City – more than any other player in the club’s history.
Aguero sits fourth on the list of all-time Premier League scorers with 184 and has the best minutes-to-goals ratio in the competition’s history.
He is also the highest scoring overseas player in Premier League history – and in January 2020 he overtook Alan Shearer to set the record for the most Premier League hat-tricks after registering his 12th away at Aston Villa.
His final game in a City shirt came in the Champions League final and fans will fondly remember Aguero’s Manchester farewell, which saw him score twice in front of returning fans to break the Premier League record for goals for a single club.
In March it was confirmed a statue of the City striker has been commissioned to stand alongside those currently in work to honour David Silva and Vincent Kompany. His legend will further be marked by the installation of dedicated and permanent mosaic at the City Football Academy.
Everyone at Manchester City would like to take this opportunity to thank Sergio for his incredible contribution to our success over the last decade and wish him well on the remainder of his career.
