Sergio Aguero signed a contract with Barcelona. He declined to discuss if Pep Guardiola will follow him from Manchester City to Camp Nou. Barcelona is in turmoil, with club president Joan Laporta labeling Ronald Koeman as “a coach who we did not ask for” on Monday. Read more Barcelona Transfer News here.
Aguero, who became Manchester City’s record goalscorer during a tremendously successful decade in England, is also seen as a possible improvement on the quality Barcelona has as striking alternatives, aside from Lionel Messi.
Messi is expected to continue at Barcelona, according to the recruit, maintaining their collaboration with the Argentina national team. When questioned about the idea of Guardiola, who managed Barcelona from 2008 to 2012, being rehired, Aguero remained tight-lipped.
He stated, ” “I don’t have the authority to speak about it. I’m not the one who has to comment about the coach since he has a contract with City.”
In 2020-21, Koeman almost guided Barcelona to a domestic double. A slump in league play in the last weeks of the season meant their surge since the turn of the year was only good for third place in LaLiga. They won the Copa del Rey, but it’s not enough to rescue him.
Laporta was also asked if Aguero was brought in to appease captain Lionel Messi. Messi is yet to sign a new contract. His current one expires at the end of June.

The press conference might be an indication of what Aguero may anticipate at Barcelona shortly. The new contract signing by Messi, as well as clarification on the coaching position, would bring a feeling of peace to the situation.
Aguero is looking forward to reuniting with his countrymen every week. “To be at Barca, where the finest player in the world is.” Said Aguero of his decision to join Barca.
