Manchester City supporters are looking up from their pints here at the Football Transfer Tavern as the latest transfer speculation arrives in the bar.
According to Alan Nixon from Mirror Football, Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola want to sign Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero in the summer, much to the annoyance of Citizens fans in the tavern.
The former Barcelona boss has set his sights on the Argentine international and will try his best to tempt him to the Allianz Arena following the 2013/14 season at the Etihad Stadium.
Nixon explains that Guardiola has been a big admirer of the 25-year-old striker for years and tried to take him to Barcelona but couldn’t afford Atletico Madrid’s asking price.
Now with the Champions League holders he can afford the price and will reportedly offer Aguero the chance to lead his attack.
Here in the tavern we assumed that this position would be handed to expected summer signing Robert Lewandowski but Nixon has an astonishing answer for that as he suggests that the Dortmund star could be heading to City in exchange.
The Polish international will sign a pre-contract agreement in January but could then move to City as part of this amazing transfer deal.
That would certainly soften the blow for City as Aguero looks for fresh start after the World Cup in Brazil. Nixon then claims that Bayern would have to pay £40 million to land Aguero to which one punter quips, City paid £39 million for the South American so why would they sell him for a similar price? It’s a good point and not one Nixon could answer at this stage.
Can you really see City selling Kun Aguero in the near future? Let us know your thoughts below.
