Manchester City marksman set to complete a transfer to PSG

Manchester City might bid farewell to the most potent goal-scorer in the club’s history as Paris Saint-Germain line-up a move for him.

Manchester City have rolled out a contract extension to Kevin De Bruyne, but they continue to delay any probable talks with Sergio Aguero. The Argentine striker’s contract at the Etihad Stadium expires at the end of this season and even at present, he can negotiate a pre-contract agreement with non-Premier League clubs.

Aguero possesses exquisite qualities of a central forward and it is no secret that he is set to be a man in demand. According to Todo Fichajes, Paris Saint-Germain are already in pole position to bring the former Atletico Madrid marksman to the Ligue 1.

Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wanted his compatriot at the Parc des Princes and personally called Aguero asking him to join the club. The Parisians are thought to be directly in contact with the forward’s agents and Aguero seems convinced into joining them. This transfer could be the gateway to an exit for one of two strikers already at the club.

Sergio Aguero’s arrival could signal the end for one of Moise Kean, who may go back to Everton, or Mauro Icardi, who is yet to convince with the side having completed a permanent switch from Inter Milan. In all likelihood, Icardi could be shown the door.

Kean has been superb for PSG and has fitted in really well at the striker’s role. Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that if all discussions go well, the Italian forward could permanently switch pastures and sign a deal with the French giants. That said, Aguero could also be used as bait to bring in Lionel Messi to PSG ahead of Manchester City.

Messi has been touted to leave Barcelona in June and two of Europe’s richest clubs are his potential destinations. Pep Guardiola’s presence at the Etihad Stadium could be influential, but Aguero and Neymar, two close friends, may lure him together to Paris.

City’s all-time top scorer shifting pastures and joining Le Rogue et Bleu could also mean that Kylian Mbappe sees the door and moves to Real Madrid. PSG are unlikely to afford keeping so many expensive players from a financial fair play perspective and their interest in signing one of the world’s most seasoned strikers could have several ripple effects.
