    Brian, I’m sure Chelsea are interested in Aguero along with many other Clubs.

    Barca clearly feel they can buy Haaland otherwise Raiola and Haaland’s Father wouldn’t have spent two hours with Laporta yesterday and I’m sure Haaland could dovetail with Haaland very well if Barca were succesful in signing him

    Ultimately it will be a difficult choice for Haaland with the majority of Europe’s top Clubs vying for his signature.

    Reports in the press suggest Chelsea are favourites for Aguero but I suspect that relies wholly on whether Aguero wants to stay in the PL over moving to Europe as has been suggested if that is the case then I suspect Chelsea for various reasons are favourites to sign Aguero.

    I get why you and the majority of City fans would prefer that that doesn’t happen and that Aguero goes abroad.

    “All” very difficult to predict currently Brian.

    Pep is quoted as saying City cannot afford those kind of fees.
    But Barca €800m euros in debt, its ok for them to increase that. Ditto Real although less. Utd half a billion in debt. OK for them too. Thats what FFP was really introduced for. What a joke.

    Quote:

    However, Guardiola feels the fees currently being quoted are too high.

    “I don’t know what is going to happen but at these prices we are not going to buy any striker,” he said.

    “It’s impossible. We cannot afford it. All the clubs are struggling financially, us as well.

    “Today there is more chance we will not buy a striker next season.”

    I don’t want aguero at Chelsea to be honest. Not that having him in the squad wouldnt be handy as even though he is nowhere near the player he was and is always injured he is still a great finisher.

    He will demand 300k per week easy on free

    Like lamps going to city, aguero going to chelsea would needlessly damage a legacy on one side of it and on the other side chelsea will end up forking out 300k per week for a player who will probably not play more than 20 games.

    I would keep giroud, tammy and werner rather than replace one with past it injury prone aguero on stupid money

    Wel Stevo..you are right it would be a Risk+ but then again you have paid a lot for two young strikers who have not performed for you. I still think he will at Barca but if he does come to you and stays reasonably fit, he will score goals , for anybody.

    Come off it Adlab πŸ˜„. This is coming from the man who has spent half a billion on his defence. Of course he’s saying he can’t afford to buy people in the hope the price comes down. City will always be in for the best players.

    They’re the most expensively assembled team in history so I don’t for a minute believe City won’t be spending big again this summer and rightly so. Whether that includes Haaland or not remains to be seen but it certainly won’t be because they “can’t afford it”.

    The problem is ED…you are not useing your car enough and filling up everyday with…petrol/diesel!!!!!!! How can we afford it?????

    We are managed just like any other business and that means you do not make losses for longer than necessary. The plan was put down for 10yrs it was financed, but we are now in the next decade, the next chapter if you like It will not be financed as previous unless other investments in the Group are found.

    We’ll see Brian. The same was said last season but everything pointed towards Messi being chased by City with an eye watering offer last summer until he wasn’t allowed to leave. If City aren’t amongst the top spenders again this summer, I’ll be astonished.

    I’ve no problem with it at all but this act of being unable to afford the top players by Pep is massively hypocritical.

    I’m with you on Raiola though Brian. Horrible man. As good as Haaland is, I’d honestly be quite happy to miss out on him purely because that man is his agent.

    Lucky, hear everything you say buddie but cast your mind back to last season when we desperately needed a quality Centre Back had Thiago Silva been suggested then we would have said he would be too old and we would be blowing too much on his wages even if he was on a free and look how that turned out.😊

    Brian, Aguero going to Chelsea will be all down to whether Aguero really wants to stay in the PL and perhaps prove City wrong in not giving him a new contract if he does want to stay in the PL then I think he’s more likely to go to Chelsea than any other PL Club.

    I can’t see him going to either Liverpool or United for all the obvious reasons and wages wise I don’t think any of the other PL can afford him and or would be prepared to pay what he will want.

    Difficult one to second guess.

    Totally agree Ed it’s a nonsense for anyone to suggest City can’t afford it or won’t be prepared to spend big particularly as FFP is going to be relaxed as it seems it is.

    The only thing that’s held City back on spending even bigger than they have over the last couple of years is their fear of getting on the wrong side of UEFA with FFP but that looks like it’s going to be changed now which means if City want Haaland they buy him but they still have to get over the problems between Raiola and Pep.😊

    Part of the problem though will be Haaland will have lots of options and where he ends up might depend somewhat on what Raiola whispers in his ear.

    Ed. it is less about affordability and more about value…that is what pep is referring to. Also good management. We may or may not sign players in the higher bracket but Pep knows who he wants and we will all have to wait and see who that is. I think you have misread pep though

    Ideal scenerio for me on the subject of Halland is for him to find a club in Europe.

    Not sure what Aguero’s plans are in his own mind; initially perhaps a bit of a break, then maybe think his options afterwards and where he fancies.

    Clubs realistically based on impact of profit have to adjust accordingly because of overheads and expenditure on players etc. I’m sure though, City will pursue in signing a new Hitman and good luck to them.

    Nine/Brian, good points both, but I can only double down on this

    aguero is arguably the finest striker the league has seen, nothing but respect for him. However Chelsea want to be better than city and we won’t get there by signing players that are no longer good enough for city. If he was still good enough he would be going nowhere this summer. Why was his contract not extended?

    I’m with Lucky on this, sure Silva has been a good signing for Chelsea, but he was brought in to give stability and organisation in the defence. Defending is all about organisation, discipline and experience and those come with age, good forwards rely on flair and creativity and there a young players trait. Yes he could come and do a job but it’s a short term fix that blocks younger players development or puts of a younger player wanting to come to the club…….Pagan

    I can see both sides of the Aguero argument. As for the blocking of the development of younger players, I think it works both ways. Is there a better mentor to bring in to inspire and help the younger players than arguably one of the best goalscorers in PL history?

    Utd have done it a couple of times in recent years with Zlatan and later Cavani and I don’t think either blocked any pathway for younger players, rather they’ve often spoken about how much it’s helped their game to train with these experienced players.

    I’d take Aguero in a heartbeat at Utd. Obviously never going to happen!
