Sergio Aguero is the top target for new boss Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain, according to agent Bruno Satin via Late Football Club and Get French Football News. The Argentine striker has struggled with injuries this season, but fellow countryman Pochettino is keen to bring him to the Parc des Princes nonetheless.
Sergio Aguero Is Top Target for Mauricio Pochettino
Successful Time at Manchester City
During 379 matches in Manchester, the 32-year-old has netted 256 times, taking City to four Premier League titles while there, and ending their forty-four-year drought of top-division trophies in the process.
The striker has also scored arguably the most iconic goal in Premier League history: a last-minute winner in a late comeback victory on the final day of the season against Queens Park Rangers, sealing the title for City, and shattering the hearts of Manchester United fans.
Pochettino is now keen for Aguero to bring that level of experience and quality to Paris, where he has recently taken over at PSG.
Pochettino New at PSG
The Argentinian manager is best known for his time with Tottenham Hotspur, where he signed in 2014 after an impressive spell with Southampton. He spent five years in London, building a fantastic team and reaching a Champions League final, but was unable to end Spurs’ trophyless streak.
Pochettino has now signed with PSG, for whom he played in the early 2000s, following the dismissal of previous manager Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel accumulated 2.35 points per game in Paris, which would be excellent for a manager at most teams, but Les Parisiens have very high standards, and Pochettino will have to live up to these if he wants to keep the job.
He is looking to do so by signing Aguero from City, as the striker’s contract runs out this summer.
