Pep Guardiola would be happy to see Sergio Aguero line up against Manchester City in the Premier League next season.

It was announced last week that City’s top scorer Aguero will leave the club when his contract expires this summer.

The 32-year-old, who has scored 257 goals for City in a decade at the Etihad Stadium, has yet to say what his next move will be.

The Argentine has been linked with Barcelona and a return to former club Atletico Madrid, while in the past he has spoken of ending his career at childhood club Independiente.

It is not, however, inconceivable that a Premier League rival could show interest in signing him on what would be a free transfer.

The prospect would be hard for some City fans to digest, but manager Guardiola insists he wouldn’t have a problem with it.

The City boss said: “We wish him the best, to all of us. Find the best for Sergio in the last years of his career, that’s for sure.

“We will be delighted with the decision he makes, the best for him and his family and his career.

“My preference is his preference. His preference is my preference. The best for him is the best for us. “

Aguero’s season has been ravaged by injury and illness. He had knee surgery in the summer and his return this trimester was complicated by additional pain in the joint and a hamstring problem. He then had more than a month of absence after contracting Covid-19.

He only returned to the starting lineup for the sixth time this season in last weekend’s victory at Leicester but was pulled after 63 minutes with Guardiola revealing he was feeling a pinch.

Guardiola said: “The game for Leicester was so difficult because they are defending so deep and so tight.

“For the forwards it was not easy but he moved well and helped us. He felt something in his leg. He has been replaced but he is better. “

Guardiola acknowledges that Aguero has always taken time to recover to his best form after fitness issues but remains optimistic he can have a big impact in the rest of the season as City pursue a quadruple.

He said: “Sergio is a lovely person with specific qualities and skills. I understand him, I know him and I understand that he needs time to be in the best conditions.

” Everything can happen. Everything can change quickly in a positive or not a positive way. Everyone needs to be ready and hopefully Sergio can be ready soon. “
