Sergio Aguero update: rumored wage demands revealed

7

It is rumored that Sergio Aguero wants a weekly salary of around £ 220,000 (€ 250,000) from his next club when he leaves Manchester City as a free agent at the end of the season.

Aguero will say goodbye to City this summer when his contract expires and ends a 10-year career in Manchester.

The Argentine, who is City’s very best goal scorer at some distance and the highest scoring foreign player in Premier League history, turns 33 before the start of next season but can still prove to be a smart short-term signing for any number of top clubs.

According to a statement that first appeared in the Gazzetta dello Sport, Aguero is said to be asking for an annual gross salary of 12 million euros, which is broken down to 250,000 euros per week or 220,000 pounds. That figure would represent a pay cut on his contract he currently has in Manchester, but not as much as it is estimated to be worth between £ 230,000 and £ 260,000 a week.

Aguero has been linked with a number of clubs since his upcoming departure from City was confirmed last month, including Barcelona, ​​Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Chelsea and Tottenham.

A move to Barcelona could mean playing at club level with international teammate Lionel Messi, while PSG will be in the market for forwards if Kylian Mbappe leaves. Juventus may also consider Aguero in their ongoing bid to win the Champions League.

It has previously been rumored that Aguero, despite a decade with City, is keen to stay in England. It has strengthened the 90mins exclusive story that Leeds United are interested in writing the forward. Chelsea, who want a striker despite spending £ 120m on Timo Werner and Kai Havertz last summer, have also been linked, as recently, with Tottenham.

It has been specifically suggested that Aguero be motivated by the idea of ​​increasing his Premier League goal, which is currently at 181. As mentioned, it is already the highest of a foreign player, but it only takes another 28 goals to run Wayne Rooney as second in total.
