Manchester City Confirm Sergio Agüero Signing

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero, for an undisclosed amount thought to be either £35m or £38m. Aguero, whose nickname is Kun, and is the son in law of Diego Maradona, joins City after 5 seasons at Atletico Madrid, where he made 234 appearances and scored 102 goals. He signs a 5 year deal at City, thought to be around £200,000 a week, and is likely to be in City’s squad for this weekend’s Dublin Super Cup.

Aguero was thought to be a replacement for Carlos Tevez, and completed the deal even after Corinthians’ move for Tevez had fell through. Aguero joins the aforementioned Tevez, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli, giving City one of the best, if not the best strike force in the Premier League. With 4 strikers who will all see themselves as worthy of a first XI place, Roberto Mancini may have to change his trusted 4-2-3-1 or play one of his strikers out of place on the left, in order to keep everyone satisfied. If he can keep the likes of Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez happy, expect City to be challenging for the Premier League title, and quite possibly be a force in Europe.
