5 Candidates for Aguero’s Replacement at Man City

Sergio Aguero has officially left Manchester City. Here are a number of potential strikers to replace Aguero at the club.

Aguero, who came to the Etihad Stadium in 2011, has become a legend for the club. Thanks to goals from Aguero, Man City has become the best club in the Premier League for the 2010s.

After Aguero and Man City are confirmed to part ways, ‘The Citizens’ is likely to bring in a new striker in the upcoming transfer market. Currently Man City is a striker crisis because only Gabriel Jesus is left.

Here are some of the players who might replace Aguero at Man City:

1. Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is said to be Manchester City’s main aim for the striker position. Being 20 years old makes Haaland a long-term project for Man City.

Haaland has proven that he can maintain his sharpness even though he is now competing in the Bundesliga which is tighter than the Austrian Bundesliga. However, the relationship between agent Mino Raiola and Pep Guardiola, which is not good enough, will make negotiations steep.

If they are able to bring in Haaland, Man City will have the type of striker with a high killer instinct and ready to be spoiled by Kevin De Bruyne and his friends’ slick passes.

2. Romelu Lukaku

The name Romelu Lukaku floats as an alternative transfer to substitute striker Sergio Aguero. Lukaku has returned to finding sharpness at Inter Milan and is now transformed into one of the best strikers in the world.

Lukaku also has experience playing in the Premier League with Everton and Manchester United. At 27 years old, Lukaku is in his golden period. After performing poorly at Manchester United, Lukaku could be an important part of Inter Milan.

However, it is believed Lukaku’s purchase will be difficult to materialize because Inter will try their best to defend it.

3. Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has also been linked with Manchester City’s plans. Harry Kane has proven his loyalty at ‘The Lilywhites’ so far, but the absence of a title could encourage Kane to try his luck at another club.

Moving to Manchester City will be the best solution for Kane, who craves the Premier League title and trophy. As for Man City, Harry Kane is clearly a suitable replacement for Sergio Aguero’s departure.

4. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi was linked with Manchester City. The Citizens are said to be one of the clubs that can afford Messi.

But after Aguero left, Messi’s chances of coming to Man City became smaller because previously Aguero was one of the things that attracted Messi to play in the Premier League.

Even though he has skills above average, the presence of Messi who is already old can also damage the balance of the team that has been neatly established at this time. Messi has not announced his future so far and there is still a chance for Man City to sign Messi.

Now the main factor that can lure Messi to Manchester City is his longing to return to playing under Pep Guardiola.

5. Alexander Isak

Alexander Isak’s name is included in the transfer market for Manchester City’s new striker. With a name that is not yet popular, Isak, who is only 21 years old, can be cheaper than Erling Haaland or other great attackers.

But Man City must be patient and wait for Isak’s adaptation to the team to mature. Isak has performed brilliantly with Real Sociedad this season with a score of 12 goals in the Spanish League.
