Manchester City haven’t been able to close down the contract talks of one of their mainstays.
Manchester City superstar Sergio Aguero runs out of a valid contract at the end of the season. There have been no signs yet, pointing towards the club extending the contract of their most prolific goal scorer. Having said that, numerous clubs are monitoring the situation of the Argentine with close eyes. There is a twist in the tale, however. It seems that the 32-year-old might be forced to take a pay-cut if he wants to continue playing at the Etihad Stadium, as per the Sun.

Aguero currently earns a whopping £260,000/week and is among the highest earners at the club. In the last two years, however, recurrent injuries have plagued the Argentine’s rhythm and have limited his appearances on the field. Perhaps this is the reason why Manchester City haven’t renewed Aguero’s stay
The former Premier League champions aren’t wrong in this case, though. At the age of 32, one would expect the player to move on but because Aguero is the player that he is, he might want to take a pay-cut if he wants to continue playing in England.
The likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are monitoring the situation closely. It is believed that Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the 32-year-old and he wants him to come to Paris. Barcelona on the other hand, lack a proper striker ever since Luis Suarez left. Martin Braithwaite is a proper striker but he hasn’t hit the ground running this season. Aguero’s experience will allow him to thrive in the defensive nature of La Liga football.
Sergio Aguero is arguably one of the greatest Sky Blue players of all time. The only fitting ending to his fairytale career at Manchester City would be in front of the fans at the Etihad stadium. The dilemma that the 32-year-old is facing is this: move on and face higher chances of earning his current weekly wages or stay and take a pay-cut. It remains to be seen what the 32-year-old ultimately decided as he is free to negotiate pre-transfer terms with any club that might approach him.
