, according toDiario AS
Aguero’s salary is going to be €5 million per season which is a lot less, compared to the €12 million he used to earn at Manchester City.
Although that’s a 58.3% reduction in his salary, he is arriving in Catalonia after going through some difficulties this season. He has been suffering from injuries to both his thigh and his knee, not to mention a bout of COVID-19. Therefore, he was only able to play 682 minutes in 18 games, score four goals, and provide one assist. The last time he was not able to hit double figures was his first season at Atletico Madrid.
However, Aguero is going to be considered a legend at Manchester City. In 2012, he was able to score the last-minute winning goal in the game against QPR which earned Manchester City their first league title of the modern era. He is also the club’s top scorer with 181 goals.
