Argentina forward Sergio Aguero will join Barcelona once his contract with Manchester City runs out at the end of June after officially signing a 2-year deal with La Liga side Barcelona on Monday.

The 32-year-old striker played his last game for Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final played at the Estadio De Dragao in Porto on Saturday where Manchester City lost 1-0 to Chelsea.

Aguero struggled with a lot of injury problems in the just concluded season playing just 12 games and scoring 4 goals in the Premier League while he played seven games in the UEFA Champions League.

Barcelona added a buyout clause of 100m euros (£86m) in Aguero’s contract at the club and he will link up with fellow Argentinian Lionel Messi.

While Manchester City won the Premier League and the Carabao cup double before losing in the final of the UEFA Champions League to Chelsea on Saturday, Barcelona were winners of the Copa Del Rey.

Ronald Koeman’s men also finished third in the La Liga behind Real Madrid and league winners Atletico Madrid.

Aguero was linked with a move to Chelsea but the former Atletico Madrid striker decided to return to Spain leaving the Premier League as the highest-scoring foreigner in the league.

Aguero scored 76 goals for Atletico Madrid before joining Manchester City in 2011 in a 30 Million pound deal winning the Premier League for the Citizens with the final kick of the Premier League season.

He is also fourth on the list of the record goalscorers in the Premier League with 184 goals for Manchester City winning 15 major trophies.

Meanwhile, Barcelona is also linked with Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum who is out of contract with the Reds in the summer, and Manchester City defender, Eric Garcia.
