Argentine striker Sergio Aguero is undoubtedly a legend who has ruled in Manchester City for the past decade. In this time, he has won five English Premier League titles in Manchester, including one this season, besides finishing as the club's all-time top goal-scorer.

However, Aguero's legendary reign at the Eithad Stadium comes to an end following the ongoing 2020-21 season. Before he departs, he will have one last target, i.e. to help City win its maiden UEFA Champions League title, which would also be his first European title.

As for his stint after Manchester, reports state that he is off to Spain. Meanwhile, according to TYCsports, he has reportedly agreed to join Barcelona and is set to play alongside his Argentine teammate and modern-day great Lionel Messi.

It would not be Argentine's first stint in La Liga, as prior to joining City, Aguero played for Atletico Madrid. He had a decent time in the Spanish capital, scoring 101 goals in 234 matches, besides winning a couple of European titles.

As per the report, the move is set to be announced after the UCL final on May 29. City takes on Chelsea in the final in Porto.

However, it would be interesting to see if Messi decides to stay put at Camp Nou, with his future being in doubt since last season, while he is yet to sign a contract extension, which comes to an end this season. The Catalan has struggled since the previous season and has been highly inconsistent at the European level.

Due to the inconsistency, Messi expressed his desire to leave and is considering other options, like City or Paris Sant-Germain. However, Barca is reportedly preparing a mega-contract that is likely to bind the Argentine GOAT at Camp Nou for life.
