Manchester City will likely be left reeling from the news that Sergio Aguero has told Manuel Pellegrini he wants out at the end of the season.
According to 101GreatGoals, who cite Spanish newspaper Sport, the Argentina ace is desperate for a move to Barcelona when the current campaign is done, and is willing to force a departure if necessary.
This is of course in stark contrast to comments made by Pellegrini which implied that he was assured Aguero was not looking to leave the club, despite rumours linking him with a return to Spain.
However Sport are convinced that the City forward wants to move to the Catalan giants, so much so that direct quotes from them read: "Kun Aguero not only has a burning desire to play for the Blaugrana sooner rather than later, but he is also willing to help, as far as possible, in getting Manchester City to agree to negotiate his departure.
"The Argentinean international had spoken with coach Manuel Pellegrini to express his wish the Premier League at the end of the season."
It is thought that the initial negotiation price could be upwards of €50million euros but that is likely to rise if the former Atletico star continues his rich vein of goal-scoring.
The 25-year-old currently has 10 goals in 12 Premier League games, and is considered indispensable by City chiefs.
