Pep Targets Manchester United’s Former Striker As Replacement For Club Legend, Sergio Aguero.



According to The Telegram, Manchester City will invest £200million to improve their squad at the end of the season.

Irrespective of how the citizen ends this season, Pep Guardiola will have to boost his team because some of his veterans could leave. One of the key areas that will be strengthened is the position of the striker.

Manchester City Legend, Kun Aguero has only 6 months left in his contract and could leave on a free transfer in the summer, therefore Pep is looking ahead to get his replacement.

Aguero who is the club’s highest goalscorer may not be able to carry on with the responsibility of the club even if he decides to stay. He has struggled with injuries this season and cannot be completely relied on.

The club has targeted Manchester United’s former striker, Romelu Lukaku as a possible replacement for its legend.

Lukaku who has been prolific throughout his career could return to Manchester after leaving in 2019. The Belgian international joined Manchester United in 2017 and while at the club, he scored 42 goals in 96 appearances.

The Belgium record all-time goal scorer is currently in Inter Milan and has scored 51 goals in 73 games.

He could be a perfect fit for the club because he is strong, fast, and very prolific. Lukaku is also a quick learner and could thrive if Manchester City can get him.

Other strikers under the radar of Pep Guardiola are Erling Haaland of Dortmund and Darwin Nunez of Benfica. The Telegram reports any of these 3 strikers as a possible replacement for the Manchester City legend.

Other positions that could need reinforcements are the next back and defensive midfield because Fernardihno also has only 6 months left.

There is also the possibility of Lionel Messi joining Manchester City in the summer when his contract expires.
