How likely is a move from Manchester City to Manchester United for Sergio Agüero?

With one eye on the summer transfer window already for many clubs, The Sun claim that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could make a sensational £55 million move across the city to Manchester United.

The Argentinean could follow in the footsteps of his former international team-mate Carlos Tevez in playing for both clubs as rumours circulate that he is no longer wanted at the Etihad by Pep Guardiola, with a move away likely this summer.

Manchester United are thought to be on the look out for additional forces up-front as they look to challenge both in the Premier League and in Europe next season, and they could look to Aguero to lead their attack.

What would he bring to Manchester United?

The 28-year-old would be the perfect long-term replacement for 35-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford. There are few, if any, players on the market with a better track record in the Premier League.

With 167 goals in 250 games for Manchester City, he has won them league titles almost single handedly and is clearly capable of leading and spearheading an attack which can take the division by storm in exactly the kind of way that Jose Mourinho needs.

Is a move away from Manchester City likely?

Certainly. Pep Guardiola has made it clear that he prefers Gabriel Jesus up-front, with his pace and energy a better suit to his high pressing tactics, and reports indicate that Aguero is up for sale for the right price.

A number of clubs have been linked with a move him, including the likes of Real Madrid.

Is a move to Manchester United likely?

It seems less so. Whilst on paper it would make sense given the reasons outlined previously, it would represent a huge betrayal of City fans with whom Aguero is respected as a hero.

Add in the fact that only a matter of weeks ago, Jose Mourinho very publicly criticised the striker for his role in Marouane Fellaini’s sending off in the Manchester Derby, money may have to talk.

With a Champions League place on offer, there could be a slim possibility. If not, then no chance.
