After starting on the bench at the weekend behind Gabriel Jesus, who scored a brace in the 2-1 victory over Swansea City, speculation on Sergio Aguero’s future at the Etihad Stadium is rising once again and there is a growing feeling that the Argentine could leave the club this summer.
Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the South American’s services, with The Mail stating they’ve already started to discuss a deal, but the Ligue 1 giants are concerned about the financial package they would have to pay to bring Aguero to the Parc des Princes.
On top of this, sources in France have suggested Alexis Sanchez is also a target for PSG this summer as they look to take advantage of the Chilean’s contract situation at the Emirates Stadium- as he’ll have just one-year remaining this summer.
It’s highly unlikely that PSG would be able to sign both attackers without offloading some of their big names, something they may have to do to even get one of their targets, but Aguero has given them a boost by admitting uncertainty on his future.
‘In three years my contract is up, that’s why I say I’m happy at the club. In these last three months that are left I have to help the club. As I say the club will decide if I have a place here or not. I want to stay here, of course.’
‘When you’re on the bench you have to wait for your opportunity. I have three months to do my best and help the team and we’ll see what happens.’
Whilst Manchester City remain adamant Aguero is going nowhere, the Argentine is no longer the key player he used to be for the Citizens, despite his impressive goal record, and Pep Guardiola has young starlets Gabriel Jesus and Kelechi Iheanacho ready to lead the line.
Putting all of his faith in the young duo could be premature though, as a more senior option would certainly help, but the financial boost City could get from parting ways with Aguero may be too good to turn down.
Either way though, PSG will struggle to get either Aguero or Alexis Sanchez due to the competition they’d face for his services. A number of La Liga sides would likely swoop for the duo and Italian clubs could also raise interest.
