According to Duncan Castles, Man City’s striker sensation Sergio Aguero might be on his way away from the Etihad in the near future.
Despite bagging an impressive 18 goals in 23 games, Aguero apparently just does not seem to fit in the frame of Pep Guardiola’s beliefs of an ideal striker for the club.
Castles, writing for Yahoo, expressed that Pep does not see Aguero as a player suitable to carry out and execute his ‘tactically fluid’ ideals. Apart from this, the striker’s recent discipline and injury issues are also a major cause of concern.

Castles brought out the fact that now in his sixth season as a Manchester City player, Aguero’s highest number of starts in a season has been only 31 games, while averaging 26 starts per season. According to City’s medical staff and their interpretation, it is almost impossible to keep Aguero physically fit for an entire campaign, both in Europe and domestically, because of his susceptibility to muscular injury.
To add further woes to the Argentine’s worries, the signing of £27m-rated Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras earlier this month looks like a step City have taken to strengthen their striker’s department and find a consistent main man for the future. Jesus is seen as Aguero’s long term successor, and it might only be a matter of time before City decide to let the 28-year-old be available in the market.
Sergio Aguero has been an unbelievable contributor to the blues of Manchester, and their recent success came with his finest moment – scoring the goal to help them lift the Premier League title, and providing the tournament with one of its greatest ever moments.
With Joe Hart gone too, Pep might be looking at the future, and what it beholds for Aguero is to be seen.
