The jury is still out on Jose Mourinho’s first season at the helm of Manchester United. A season which started with so much promise has had its fair share of low moments and insipid performances that have frustrated the Old Trafford faithful. But the Portuguese is already looking towards next season as Jose is planning a SHOCK move for this Argentine superstar.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the standout player for Manchester United this year and his season ending injury has already posed some tough questions for the coach. Will he now continue for one more season or will he leave United and go someplace else? While many people are already wondering who would replace Zlatan, Jose might have made his mind up.
Sergio Aguero will comfortably go down as one of the greatest strikers to have ever played in England. He might even go down as Manchester City’s greatest ever player for he has played a critical role in their successes over recent years. His last minute goal to win City the league will go down as not only one of the greatest moments in Manchester City’s history but also one of the most emotional moments that the Premier League has ever seen.
But things might be about to change as Aguero, while still remaining as popular as ever for the City fans, might not be a major part of Guardiola’s plans next season. Aguero has quite often been benched in favor of other strikers. And with Gabriel Jesus looking like the real deal, Aguero might find himself surplus to City’s requirements.
Jose is now seriously looking at Aguero as his summer transfer as he would transform the United team into serious challengers next season. Aguero will cost around 50 million which should not at all be a problem. United would also like to offer him higher wages compared to the ones that he is earns right now at City.
Aguero himself has spoken about his uncertain Manchester City future.
‘I know there will come a time when I have to step aside,’ said the Argentine. ‘Other young strikers like Gabriel will be brought in.
‘When you reach a certain age the youngsters start putting pressure on you and you have to be even better.
‘I’m happy he’s back now and that means I’ll have to be much more focused and alert when I play.
‘If I have to start on the bench once again, I’ll have to accept it. That’s football, I always respect my coaches and I certainly respect Pep.’
