Sergio Aguero has sealed his move to Barcelona as a free agent, as the Argentina superstar will link up with his close friend Lionel Messi again.

Aguero, 32, was out of contract at Manchester City this summer and their all-time leading goalscorer decided to move on from the Etihad Stadium.

Barcelona have given Aguero a two-year contract, and they revealed there is a $122 million buyout clause in his contract.

With Messi, 33, out of contract this summer, but expected to sign a new deal, this move for Aguero will give him another extra nudge in the right direction.

Messi has yet to confirm he will stay at Barcelona, but it appears the club are putting everything in place to get a winning team around him and he will sign a new deal.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia are all expected to join on free transfers too, as despite Barcelona’s financial problems, they are still an extremely attractive proposition. (NBC Sports)
