Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Agüero can leave the club for free as soon as June 2020 – so long as he doesn’t go to another European team, according to TYC Sports as relayed by Sport Witness.
Argentinian channel TyC Sports, claim Agüero could leave the club one year before his contract ends in 2021 and join the MLS in the United States.
Agüero would follow in the footsteps of big names such as Andrea Pirlo, David Beckham, Didier Drogba, Steven Gerrard and even former Manchester City player Frank Lampard]. According to TyC, his compatriots Javier Mascherano and ex-City teammate Carlos Tevez, both 35 years old, may also have MLS moves in the pipeline.
If reports are to be believed, Agüero is only free to leave the club for nothing if the team he joins “does not belong to European football”. This could mean he may not join a team that is regularly in the Champions League or Europa League – or it may exclude all teams in the continent itself.
The condition would prevent the striker from coming back to bite Manchester City with a goal to knock them out of a UEFA competition with his trademark deadly finishing.
Agüero has long since expressed his desire to return to boyhood club Independiente in Argentina at the end of his career, and this news could leave the door open for him to do exactly that. The Premier League icon has scored 241 goals in 348 appearances for Manchester City.
