Inter Milan are reportedly planning a move for the Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero in the next summer transfer window. Aguero’s contract with Manchester City is due to expire at the end of the season. With the club and player yet to discuss a possible contract renewal, the 32-year-old will be free to sign for a new team in January.
Inter’s idea is to sign Aguero on a 2-year deal with the option for a third one
As the deal could happen on a free transfer, Inter will be able to invest in the player’s salary. Giuseppe Marotta, Inter’s CEO, is reportedly willing to offer a €7 to €8 million in salaries for a 2-year contract, with the option to extend for a third one. With Juventus having won the last 9 Serie A titles. the Nerazzurri continue to plan a strong investment in the team.
Antonio Conte was able to build a strong attacking duo, with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez. Both combined for 55 of Inter’s 112 goals last season.
The team was second in the 2019/20 Serie A and reached the UEFA Europa League final, losing to Sevilla. With Lautaro’s future being constantly related to a move to Barcelona, Inter seems to be working on a new partner for Lukaku. After rumors that pointed Inter in Aguero’s track this off-season, that could become a reality in the next summer transfer window.
Manchester City “not considering” Aguero’s contract renewal
With his contract set to expire in June 2021, City’s key striker can be on his way at the end of the season. Aguero is the team’s all-time top goal scorer, with 254 goals in 370 appearances for the Citizens.
The club expressed its intention to extend Aguero’s contract in many occasions during last season. However, still nothing happened on that matter as for today, which opens the door for the possibility of Aguero leave the club at the end of the season.
Already considered a legend for The Blues, Aguero stated in 2016 that he would love to return to his boyhood club Independiente once his contract with the English side finishes. For now, nothing is certain, besides the fact that Aguero still owns the status of one of the most deadliest strikers in European football.
Could this be his last season at the Etihad Stadium?
