Ahead of the summer transfer window, FC Barcelona have reportedly struck a pre-contract agreement with Sergio Aguero.

Sergio Aguero has reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement to join Barcelona in the summer.

The Argentine striker will leave Manchester City once his contract expires in June. With a club-record of 258 goals in 388 games, along with 15 major titles under his belt at the Etihad, he isn’t short of options.

Champions League finalists Chelsea, for one, were strongly linked with Aguero.

But the 32-year-old favors a move away from the Premier League and has been widely tipped to link up with his old friend and compatriot Lionel Messi at Barcelona for next season.

As per Fabrizio Romano, ‘Kun’ has now put pen-to-paper on a pre-contract agreement. He plans to make it official on Sunday by undergoing a medical for Barcelona after the Champions League final this weekend.

Aguero is expected to feature against Chelsea in the final on Saturday for what will be his last game with City.
