Sergio Aguero is set to leave Manchester City after nine trophy-laden years in the North West.
Aguero joined City in 2011 and scored 258 goals for the club, winning five Premier League titles along the way.
The Argentine mercurial is reportedly set to finalize a move to Spanish giant Barcelona with his contract at City expiring this summer.
Aguero could leave the Cityzens on a high with Pep Guardiola’s side facing Chelsea in the all-English Champions League final next Saturday, having already won the Premier League title this season.
And with the Carabao Cup already in City’s trophy, Aguero could leave the Etihad stadium this summer after helping his side to a hat-trick.
Current Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta worked with Aguero for three and a half years during his stint as City assistant coach, and the Spaniard paid a glowing tribute to the 32-year-old ahead of his transfer to the Catalan club.
Speaking ahead of the city of Aguero’s farewell on Sunday, Arteta said: “It has been an absolute joy to work with him.
“His character, his personality, he’s a lovely man and one of the best talents I’ve seen.
