Barcelona expect Sergio Aguero to force Manchester City exit

Barcelona have been told that Sergio Aguero will tell Manchester City that he wants to leave for the Catalan club, reports in Spain suggest.

The Argentine international is the latest target for Barcelona after his impressive form attracted the attention of Gerardo Martino.

El Mundo Deportivo is reporting that representatives of the player have told Barcelona that they expect Aguero to tell Manchester City that he wants to leave the Premier League for the La Liga giants.

A move for Aguero will please their star player Lionel Messi, who has told the club that his compatriot - one of his best friends in football - is the best possible striker to compliment his play.

Aguero has been the standout striker in the Premier League so far this season after scoring eight goals - 13 in all competitions -  and assisting six so far. His contributions have come in vein as of yet, however, as Manchester City sit in eighth place six points off the leaders Arsenal.

It is unlikely that Manchester City will let their star man go with ease though after they paid £38m to sign him from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

With no need to raise funds through player sales, it would take some major agitating from Aguero to force Manuel Pellegrini's hand and allow him to leave for the Nou Camp.

Another striker who has been linked with an exit from the Etihad is Edin Dzeko, who is attracting interest from Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund after declaring his willingness to leave Manchester City if doesn't play more in the near future.
