Borrusia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has emerged as a top priority target for Manchester City this summer.
The Premier League table-toppers are already shopping for a replacement for their legend Sergio Aguero who confirmed he will leave the club at the end of this season.
Having spent 10 years at the Etihad Stadium, the Argentine forward won 13 major titles including four English topflight trophies.
Sources claim the Argentinian forward decided to quit City after Pep Guardiola was said to have told him his contract was not being renewed as he could not assure him of enough playing time.
And the Spaniard is now looking to lure the Norwegian to the EPL, while Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane is also a target.
Meanwhile, Barcelona, Inter Milan, and former club Atletico Madrid are considered possible destinations for the attacker. Return home to his home country also appears possible.
SunSport reports that City told Aguero yesterday he will be welcomed to return to the club in any role or could go and play for any of the other football group’s clubs, such as New York City.
Aguero’s title-winning goal against QPR in 2012 is one of the most famous strikes in English football history.
The Citizens showered praises on their all-time top scorer on Twitter:
“Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the last ten years cannot be overstated. His legend will be indelibly etched into the memories of everyone who loves the club and maybe even in those who simply love football.
“This is not yet the moment for farewell words and speeches — there is still much to achieve in the remainder of the time we have with Sergio, and we look forward to his contributions to the challenges which lie ahead.”
A statue of Aguero, 32, has been commissioned to stand alongside those currently being worked on to honour fellow club legends David Silva and Vincent Kompany.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Argentine forward Sergio Aguero will part ways with Manchester City at the end of this campaign.
The 32-year-old joined the Citizens from Atletico Madrid in a deal around €40 million in 2011 and he rose to become the club's highest goals scorer within a decade.
He scored a staggering 257 goals and 73 assists in 384 appearances across competitions for the Etihad Stadium outfit.
