Sergio Aguero might very well be the best player in the history of Manchester City and one of the best strikers of his generation. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 257 goals and provided 73 assists in 384 appearances for the Citizens. But could his future lie at Manchester United?
It has already been confirmed that Aguero will be leaving Pep Guardiola’s side at the end of the season when his contract runs out. He has only made 14 appearances this season which have combined for just 454 minutes of football, scoring 3 goals.
And although he is set to be 33 by the time next season rolls around, it is expected that there will be a lot of interest in signing a player of his quality on a free transfer. Could the Red Devils be one of those clubs?
It certainly does look like so. As reported by Foot Mercato (via Sport Witness), he has already received at least five offers. These include Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan.

Signing Aguero could be a shrewd move for Manchester United
Yes, Aguero has not enjoyed the best season. But one cannot forget that it was only last season that he scored 16 goals in 24 Premier League appearances. While he might no longer be a player who can lead a team on his own, he is certainly one who can play a huge part at the right club.
And it is no secret that the Red Devils need a striker. Anthony Martial has struggled to find the back of the net on a consistent basis while Edinson Cavani has had his injury issues and might end up leaving in the summer as well.
Thus, signing a player of Aguero’s ability on a free transfer could prove to be a shrewd move on the part of the club. The big question is whether he would be open to a switch to Old Trafford after a legendary career at Manchester City.
