Pep hopes £300,000-a-week Arsenal target ‘stays at the highest level’ after Man City exit confirmed
Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said he hoped Arsenal-linked Sergio Aguero would see out his career at the highest level after he helped City to a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Alexandre Lacazette has scored thirteen goals in all competitions for Arsenal this season, but many reports in the media believe that he is not part of the long-term plans at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta.
That has led to speculation in the media that Arsenal may be interested in signing Aguero in the transfer window now that it has been confirmed that he will be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract with the club.
And amid the speculation, and after seeing Aguero help City close the gap on that Premier League title, Guardiola said he hoped Sergio AGuero would see out his career at the highest level after
Guardiola said on Sky Sports: “He’s an absolutely top legend, extraordinary player, behaving as the most humble and nicest human being and it’s not easy to find that. That’s why I love him as a man.
“This season, we took a difficult decision, one of the toughest ones too, especially because he was injured for a long time, but this club next season needs to make other steps and to maintain this level for a longer time. But what he has done in this club, will remain forever and we want to finish in the best way possible.
“Hopefully he can go in the place he wants to be and play the last years of his career in a high level. I never will forget it, he helped me a lot and it’s a pleasure to work with him.”
Would Arsenal fans welcome a possible deal?
