Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman does not want the club to sign Sergio Aguero this summer, according to reports. Manchester City announced on Monday that Aguero would leave the Etihad at the end of his contract this summer. But it is claimed Koeman would prefer to sign Memphis Depay instead.

Argentina international Aguero has been linked with a free transfer to Barca.

Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly interested in signing the 32-year-old.

Aguero is close friends with Barca superstar and international team-mate Lionel Messi.

But it appears Koeman is prepared to risk upsetting Messi by refusing to sign Aguero.

Spanish outlet Sport says Koeman would much prefer to see fellow Dutchman Depay join his squad than Aguero.

Depay is out of contract at Lyon this summer and was targeted by Barca last year.

Koeman believes Depay would suit his system at the Nou Camp better than Aguero and would be prepared to play more as a substitute.

Barca remain interested in signing Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland, even if they bring in Depay.

Aguero’s City exit ends a 10-year association with the Manchester club.

City have announced they will honour their all-time record goalscorer with a statue at the Etihad.

Aguero has won 10 major honours during his time at City and is set to add more to that tally before he leaves the club.

The Premier League title looks all but secure, with the three cup competitions up for grabs.

Speaking after his departure was announced, former Atletico Madrid star Aguero said he hoped the current City squad can continue to build upon the strides the club have made in the last decade.

Aguero wrote: “I was to join during the reconstruction era of 2011, and with the guidance of the owners and the contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world.

“The task to maintain this well-deserved privileged position will remain on others. 

“As for myself, I will continue to give it my utmost for the rest of the season to win more titles and bring more joy to the fans.

“Then, a new stage with new challenges will begin, and I am fully ready to face them with the same passion and professionalism that I have always dedicated to continue competing at the highest level.”
