 Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is amongst the many names being touted for a move in the summer transfer window. Here's a breakdown of the Argentinian's difficult 2012-13 season at the Etihad, along with a few hints as to where he could be playing next year.

AGE: 24

CONTRACT SITUATION: Aguero's five-year deal at Manchester City will expire in July 2016.

CAREER STOPS: Independiente (2003-2006), Atletico Madrid (2006-11), Manchester City (2011-current)

CURRENT CAMPAIGN: Premier League—30 games, 12 goals, 2 assists; Champions League—5 games, 2 goals 


SCOUTING GUIDE: One of the deadliest natural finishers on the planet, Aguero is often unplayable when fully fit. His speed, dribbling skill and ability to score goals from in and around the box makes him extremely difficult to contain for 90 minutes. The Argentinian's knack of scoring match-winning goals often sees his club succeed in difficult situations.

WHERE NEXT? Aguero's season has been difficult on and off the field. With numerous injuries and the break up of his marriage to Giannina Maradona, the 24-year-old is no longer tied to Manchester by his family.

Aguero's ex-wife and son have moved to homes in Madrid and Buenos Aires; an occurrence that has seen the striker once again pop onto Real Madrid's radar according to The Telegraph.

Recent events at Manchester City—namely the sacking of Roberto Mancini and dressing room upset—saw The Guardian report that Aguero wants to leave the club.The Daily Express indicates Barcelona are set to lure Aguero away from the Etihad as a replacement for David Villa.

Amidst the continued interest, Metro suggests Manchester City is ready to offer the prolific forward a bumper new deal to secure his future.
