End of an era: Sergio Aguero next club odds

Manchester City announced on Monday evening that Sergio Aguero would be leaving the club in the summer, bringing an end to the Argentinian’s 10-year spell at the club.

Aguero has played a vital part in City’s successes since he arrived at the club, and will go down as one of the greatest players ever to pull on the famous blue shirt.

He will leave the Etihad as City’s all-time leading goalscorer, having netted 257 times in all competitions.

The 32-year-old also famously scored the goal that won City their first top division title in 44 years in 2012.

With one chapter in his career now closing, what’s next for Aguero?

We’ve taken a look at which clubs are currently favourites to become his next club after he does leave City in the summer.

Lowest odds: 8/11 (William Hill)

Could Aguero make the move to Barcelona and form a dream linkup with international team-mate Lionel Messi?

Barca are currently the favourites to be the 32-year-old’s next destination. They have been heavily linked with the forward over recent weeks, and are seemingly in search of a number nine to fill the void left by the departure of Luis Suarez last summer.

If the move is complete, it would be a return for Aguero to the league where he first launched himself onto the world stage.

He joined Atletico Madrid from Argentinian side Independiente in 2006, going on to form a potent strike partnership with ex-Manchester United striker Diego Forlan.

He helped the club win the Europa League in 2010, before departing for City a year later.

Any MLS Club

Lowest odds: 2/1 (Unibet)

Aguero’s signature would certainly be a huge coup for any MLS side.

David Beckham’s Inter Miami franchise were linked with the striker last year, with rumours that the club wanted to sign him and ex-team-mate David Silva when their City contracts expired.

With the Argentinian international now set to leave City, Beckham could be tempted to bring Aguero over to the United States.

Any Argentina Premier Division Club

Lowest odds: 4/1 (Sky Bet, Unibet)

Another option for Aguero is to move back to the country of his birth.

He began his career with Independiente, joining their youth system aged nine. He subsequently became the top division’s youngest ever player.

The forward scored 27 goals in his final season with the club before moving on to Atletico.

William Hill are offering odds of 6/1 on Aguero rejoining Independiente.

Atletico Madrid

Lowest odds: 4/1 (Unibet)

Aguero could make a fairytale return to the side that propelled him further into the bracket of the world’s elite strikers.

Since he left, Atletico have gone from domestic challengers to champions under the management of Diego Simeone. They won LaLiga in 2013/14 on the last day of the season, and reached the Champions League final, losing out to Real Madrid.

When this season ends, they could potentially have lifted another LaLiga title.

They sit four points clear of second-placed Real with 10 games remaining.

Add in the opportunity to play alongside the likes of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix, and Atletico is an interesting proposition for Aguero.


Lowest odds: 9/1

Italian giants Juventus are another club seemingly looking to bring in a top forward this summer.

Andrea Pirlo’s side have generally had a disappointing campaign by their lofty standards. They sit 10 points behind leaders Inter in Serie A, and were knocked out of the last 16 of the Champions League by FC Porto.

But Juve aren’t a side that normally take long to fight back. The signing of an elite striker such as Aguero – to possibly play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo – would make a big statement of their intentions for next season.
