Sergio Aguero

Manchester City icon Sergio Aguero has been left confused by his former club’s transfer business this summer, and has revealed that he found the sale of Raheem Sterling to Chelsea ‘strange’, when speaking on Twitch recently.

Pep Guardiola is famous for not standing in a player’s way when he wishes to depart, and the Cityzens have seen three notable sales so far this summer, with Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko both joining Sterling in London, albeit the other side of the city with Arsenal.

There is also speculation over the future of Bernardo Silva, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

And the departures have left Aguero scratching his head as to the reasoning behind them, with the former star explaining that he found the sale of Sterling in particular peculiar.

“I don’t understand the sale of Sterling, there are times they (City) make strange decisions”, the club’s all-time leading goalscorer told viewers.

Aguero warns Haaland will need time to settle and reveals Alvarez message

The departures of Sterling and Jesus have been offset by the arrivals of both Erling Haaland but also of Julian Alvarez, who has joined the club with high hopes of following in Aguero’s footsteps in Manchester.

And, Aguero revealed that the pair had been in contact, but that he only warned his compatriot about the weather.

“Julian sent me a message to find out how life is in Manchester, I told him that he was going to be very cold!”, he explained.

Meanwhile, the now-retired striker warned fans to give Haaland time to settle to the rigours of the Premier League after his subdued performance in the Community Shield against Liverpool. highlighting the difference between Germany and England.

“He was too used to Germany, Haaland thought he was alone, then Van Dijk arrived and said ‘welcome to the Premier League”'.
