Sergio Aguero is almost about signing for Barcelona after receiving a draft contract, according to reports.
The 32-year-old is eager to team up with Argentine compatriot Lionel Messi.
Chelsea and Manchester United were linked with City’s club-record striker but it appears they may have to look elsewhere.
And now Catalan publication Beteve claim Aguero’s agents have their hands on a copy of the draft contract.
They add a deal is ‘imminent’ after his agents jetted to Barcelona to hold talks with club representatives.
The Catalan side are in the market for a new No9 in the summer and are also targeting Erling Haaland.
Aguero remains open to the idea of staying in the Premier League but SunSport first reported the interest from Barca back in January.
Mundo Deportivo believe a deal between player and club still remains some way off.
Barca are thought to be balking at Aguero’s £12million-a-year wage demands following a season ravaged by injuries.
