Aguero: Big shoes to fill in!

With compatriot Carlos Tevez wanting a move to his homeland Argentina, Atletico Madrid’s star Sergio Aguero is lashing his eyelids at the prospect of earning insane money plying his trade for Manchester City, next season.

Though Aguero was delaying any comments over his future till the conclusion of Copa America,  it seems that he’ll have plenty of time now to seize a favourable move, with his nation knocked out by Uruguay.

Earlier, he told Argentine radio station Radio La Red:

“I have made clear in my statement that I do not see myself at Atlético.

“I will seek the best for me, I know that my representatives are working and for now I don’t want to think about it. I will do something after the Copa América, when I am able to think calmly.

“But if I said I saw myself at Atlético, I’d be lying. I’d prefer to play in Spain or England, those are the two best countries.

“Atlético has been my place of work in Spain. I have given everything for the shirt and I have had a lot of fun but as far as my future is concerned, don’t bet on anything.”

Though Manchester City will sorely miss the package that was Tevez- with his street-fighting skills and dogged determination making anything seem possible; Aguero seems a perfect signing (if it goes through) with his fine technique and skill-set to compete with the best. Aguero has age on his side and is more suited to the deep playing role that City may want him for. Another positive which comes with his arrival is his impeccable eye for goal and his ability to lead the line, if desired.

If Manchester City are willing to let go of the league’s highest goal-scorer (last season), they need to back it up with a marquee signing to display their intent of placing the club above all. After all, football is a game of rhythm and momentum and City can replace demise with rebirth, just like Liverpool did after getting rid of Torres.

Manchester City need quality in all departments, especially after having qualified for the Champions League and who better than Aguero to infuse confidence amongst the supporters that the club is on the right track?  Some of you may be wondering my constant emphasis on the need to infuse confidence, especially after having won their first trophy in 35 years, but the point of concern is their over-reliance on Carlito’s ability to conjure goals from nothing and Aguero may well take some time to settle.

But, as they say the only thing constant is CHANGE.
