Barcelona, Spain, May 31 – Barcelona have signed an agreement with Sergio Aguero until 2023, the Catalan giants announced on Monday.
In a statement, Barca said Aguero, who arrives after a decade at Manchester City, has a buyout clause “set at € 100million”.
Aguero’s signing for Barca comes two days after missing the Champions League with City after losing this season’s final to Chelsea.
The 32-year-old leaves City as their all-time leading scorer with 260 goals and the most goals scored for a single club in Premier League history – 184 goals in 275 appearances.
His move to Barcelona was long overdue, with City coach Pep Guardiola saying a week ago he was close to a deal.
Aguero is returning to Spain after spending five years with Atletico Madrid between 2006 and 2011, and the club hope his arrival in Catalonia will help convince compatriot Lionel Messi to stay.
Barca captain Messi, whose contract expires at the end of June, has yet to sign a new deal with Barcelona.
Aguero will take part in this year’s Copa America, which was transferred from Colombia and his home country Argentina to Brazil on Monday.
