Sergio Aguero Joins Manchester City

Despite Corinthans' proposed Carlos Tevez purchase falling through, Manchester City are pressing on with their own buy of Atletico Madrid forward Sergio 'Kun' Aguero. It now sounds as though Kun is definitely on his way to the Etihad Stadium, with Roberto Mancini and company paying £35M for the pleasure of his company over the next few years:

This looks like a fantastic deal for City, securing an elite player for a fair price. It's been well known that Aguero had been agitating for a move away from Atletico for some time, and after a strong Copa America, the pressure on the La Liga club was simply too great to resist a bid. City will be getting someone who can play more than competently as a centre forward, number ten, and on either side. It's a very good piece of business for a club looking to make a major push for the Premier League title.
