Manchester City

Man City already have a replacement for Sergio Aguero in mind


Few top clubs are fortunate enough to boast two strikers as talented as Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, but that’s exactly the situation Manchester City find themselves in.

Pep Guardiola has a big decision to make about his first-choice strikers, with Kelechi Iheanacho also vying for a back-up role.

All this has cast doubt on Aguero’s future, with the Argentinian and two-time Premier League title winner dropped to the bench for the 2-1 win over Swansea at the weekend.

The Sun report that while the striker would like to stay, City bosses have already identified Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as his replacement if he decides to quit the Etihad at the end of the season.


Quite where all this would leave Jesus is unclear, as Aubameyang isn’t going to be sitting on the bench.

Guardiola will be familiar with the Gabon and Borussia Dortmund star from his own time in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, and it’s thought it will take at least £40million to tempt BVB into selling.

Dortmund have a history of struggling to keep hold of their best players, last summer selling Mats Hummels to Bayern and losing Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester United.
