In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Howey, who played 99 times for Manchester City, has backed Sergio Aguero to stay in the Premier League after his contract expires with City at the end of the season.
Since it was announced that Aguero would be leaving Man City at the end of the season, he has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur as they prepare to potentially lose Harry Kane, while Foot Mercato reported that he had received offers from both Chelsea and Manchester United.
Aguero has been with City since 2011 when he joined from Athletico Madrid for £36 million and has become the club’s all-time top scorer, as well as scoring the winning goal against QPR to earn them their first-ever Premier League title in 2012.
Speaking on why Aguero may fancy himself to stay in the Premier League and how a move to Qatar or China could also be on the cards, Howey told FFC:
“I know there were rumours about him going to Man United so it’ll be interesting to see what he does decide to do.
“Somebody like Aguero may feel as if he could still do a great job in the Premier League, or he could easily get a move to Qatar or China.”
Aguero has long been linked with a move to Barcelona which would potentially convince his international teammate, Lionel Messi, to stay at the club.
