Luis Suarez Gives His Honest Opinion On Sergio Aguero’s Move To Barcelona
The Argentine is leaving Manchester City after ten wonderful seasons in the Premier League and scored twice off the bench against Everton in an emotional Etihad Stadium farewell on Sunday.
Although Aguero himself was coy about his next move, City manager Pep Guardiola pretty much confirmed that he will be returning to La Liga with Barcelona.
“Maybe I reveal a secret. Maybe he is close to agreeing a deal for the club of my heart – for Barcelona,” Guardiola told Gary Lineker on BBC Match of the Day.
“He is going to be playing alongside the best player of all time, Messi.”
The 32-year-old is effectively going to come in as Barca’s replacement for Suarez, who they let go in the summer.
The former Liverpool striker fired Atletico Madrid to the title with 21 goals in La Liga. Though he’s still not happy with the way in which he was forced out, Suarez supports the signing of Aguero on a free.
Speaking in a lengthy interview with El Partidazo de COPE, he said: “Now there is a new board of directors, other people, and they are looking for a quality player.
“Obviously he has a relationship with Leo, but you cannot argue about what a quality player he is and what he can give to Barcelona. I support the decision totally.”
Aguero linking up with close friend and compatriot Messi isn’t exactly set in stone as the six-time Ballon d’Or winner hasn’t yet decided on whether he will be staying put at the Nou Camp.
However, Suarez is fully in favour of his former teammate remaining at Barcelona.
“As a friend and fan I would be happy, I would love it, and I would recommend that he continues at Barcelona,” the Uruguayan commented.
“Has he told me if he’s staying? Not yet.”
