Barcelona to beat Chelsea to Sergio Aguero?
Barcelona are reportedly deemed favourites to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero on a free transfer.
The Argentine will leave the Cityzens at the end of the campaign, and he has plenty of offers at his disposal.
The Blues are among those interested, but they can't open negotiations until the end of the current campaign.
Meanwhile, overseas clubs can discuss contract terms, and the Blaugrana have already made contact with Aguero's agents.
The hierarchy have given the green light for the Bosman move, and it is claimed that Aguero is crazy to join the club.
Aguero is determined to play alongside close friend and compatriot Lionel Messi, and is willing to take a significant pay-cut.
Messi's current deal with the Catalan giants expires next month, but they are confident of extending his stay with Aguero's arrival.
Messi has a close relationship with the Cityzens star. It is claimed that the Argentine has personally demanded the club to sign Aguero.
