Tue 13 April 2021 | 13:14

It appears that Barcelona have speeded up talks to sign the Citizens striker.

There are only a few months left on

Sergio Aguero

’s contract with

Manchester City

and the Citizen’s legend will leave club after 10 successful years. He officially announced the news last month, but it is not yet clear where will be his next destination.

Barcelona

was the first club to be linked with the Argentine, followed by PSG, Juventus and even Leeds United. According to

Diario Sport

, Barcelona are ahead of the other opponents in the race to sign the Argentina international and they have speeded up talks to recruit the Citizens striker as soon as possible.

The 32-year-old has missed many City games in the last two seasons due to various injuries, which has led Barcelona and other clubs to hesitate about signing the talented striker.

However, Barcelona are currently trying to persuade

Lionel Messi

to stay at Camp Nou, and Aguero’s close friendship with Messi can help the Blaugrana to seal the deal with the Argentine superstar.

The prolific striker has scored 257 goals during his 10-year spell with the Citizens and has become the club’s all-time leading scorer.
