Sergio Aguero willing to take pay cut to make Barcelona transfer go through with Man City contract set to expire

SERGIO AGUERO would be "happy" to join Barcelona this summer – even with a pay cut.

That's the sense from reports in Spain, with Barca also linked with Bayern Munich full-back David Alaba and Agueo's Manchester City team-mate Eric Garcia.

PSG, Juventus, and Inter are among striker Aguero's other admirers ahead of his contract expiring at the end of the season.   

And it seems the 32-year-old will exit the Etihad unless City's record scorer fully shakes off doubts over his fitness and sharpness.

Mundo Deportivo's Edu Polo suggests the Argentina legend would accept lower wages to land a Nou Camp move.

But it is thought Aguero might demand a bonus sum to join the cash-strapped Catalans 

Polo claims Aguero's agent alerted Joan Laporta even before he was elected Barcelona president that his client was interested in switching to the Spanish giants.

And the belief around the Etihad is that Aguero's future is very much in his own hands as he battles to prove he is still an elite-level marksman.

If he overcomes injury niggles and once again usurps Gabriel Jesus as City's main man up front, then boss Pep Guardiola could consider offering him a deal.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea and Manchester United target Alaba, 28, is also high up Barca's summer wishlist.

And Etihad centre-back Garcia, 20, is again being tipped for a Nou Cap return.
