Sergio Aguero is set to leave Manchester City after a decade, at the end of this season. The 32-year-old will walk out as a free agent in a bid to look for a new challenge.
The Argentine has been the record goal-scorer for Manchester City and the former Premier League champions will have a very tough time finding an able replacement for the number 10.

Gabriel Jesus was brought into the club with the view that the Brazilian would be the ideal long-term replacement of Sergio Aguero but the 23-year-old is not the same player that he once was. The Brazilian seems to be short on confidence and Pep Guardiola hasn’t relied on the former Palmeiras man in crunch games.
With City looking all set to enter the summer market on the hunt for a new striker this summer, an interesting piece of rumor has entered the rumor mill. ESPN understands that Bayern Munich superstar and Ballan d’Or contender, Robert Lewandowski is undecided about his future at the Allianz Arena.
The 32-year-old is currently closing in on Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a single Bundesliga season. Lewandowski is currently at 36 from 31 games and it is just a testament that despite his age, he is a goal-machine.
It is understood that clubs would have to offer a fee in the range of €60 million to have any hopes of landing the Polish striker, though Bayern Munich is unlikely to let their main man leave. The former Borussia Dortmund man once hinted that the end of his career at Bayern Munich would mean retirement for him and it is unclear if the six-time Bundesliga winner is still carrying that thought with him.
Chelsea are also said to be in line to land the 32-year-old while also being linked with Sergio Aguero. Timo Werner has had a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge with the German striker missing many clear-cut chances. Werner is likely to get another chance though.
Manchester City, on the other hand, continue to find themselves being linked with Erling Haaland and Harry Kane though the club can only afford to bring in only one of them. It is to be mentioned that both Kane and Haaland have been slapped with a £150 million valuation. It will be interesting to see if City pursue the option of Haaland or go for an experienced Tottenham legend in Harry Kane.
