The Manchester City striker departed on a free transfer to join Barcelona. Aguero was signed by Barcelona after City decided to let him go at the end of his contract, bringing an end to ten years of trophy-laden performances in Manchester.

Barca have said in a statement on their official website:

“FC Barcelona and Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero have reached an agreement for the player to join the Club from 1 July when his contract with Manchester City expires,” their statement reads.

Having signed for the Manchester club in 2011, Aguero went on to score 260 times in 390 games as he established himself as one of the Premier League’s greatest ever goal scorers.

Aguero isn’t the only Man City player that is set to join Barcelona this summer, with the signing of Eric Garcia expected to be announced in the coming days.

Sergio Aguero’s record at City

Sergio Aguero has helped Manchester City win five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and six League Cups during his time in England.

Originally transferred to City for £35 million ($50m) from Atletico in 2011, Aguero scored 260 goals in 390 matches across all competitions for City, becoming their all-time leading scorer.

Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero ended his Premier League career with a double in the final match of the season, a 5-0 demolition of Everton, but fell short in the Champions League final, losing 1-0 to defending champions Chelsea.

What will Sergio Aguero bring to Barca?

Aguero could be a good replacement for Luis Suarez. Barcelona will hope that Aguero can have a similar impact next season despite the fact that he struggled to find form and fitness during his last season at Etihad Stadium. One thing is certain with Aguero: he will score goals.
