FC Barcelona announced this Monday its brand-new first signing for next season, Kun Agüero, who, after making history at Manchester City, will reinforce the Barça attack. The Argentine has already posed with the colors of the club in his presentation, in which he has been very excited about this new step in his career.
After signing his contract at the Auditori 1899, he put on the kit of his new team, which is not the one he will wear next season but this one, and jumped into the green to give his first touches as a culé. Unfortunately, due to the health situation, neither in the presentation could there have been an audience to see Agüero from Barcelona for the first time.
His first words, before the formal actors, already showed his commitment to the team. “We all know that Barça is the best team in the world. It is a good decision to be here, and to be able to help the team to achieve things. I hope to reach the end of the season with important things. I will try to do my best and that the fans can enjoy my game with this shirt, “he stated.
Already in the presentation, he revealed that since childhood he dreams of playing for Barcelona, as he confessed to the president. “I told Laporta before that as a boy I said: ‘one day they will surely notice me’. And here I am. I didn’t imagine it, but anyone runs to sign for Barça,” he said.
It did not take long for him to talk about his friend Messi, with whom there is more and more speculation that he will continue in the team, especially after the landing of Kun, who “knows him quite well” and admits that “he believes he will continue” and that “they will give the best for the club. ” “We have known each other for a long time and for me playing now and training with him every day is now going to be much easier.”
Regarding his state of form, in the last season he suffered a significant drop due to the state of his knee, playing only 20 games in all competitions, scoring 6 goals and giving an assist. However, his career at Manchester City and the Premier is flawless, where this season he managed to establish himself as the player with the most goals for the same club in the league, with 260.
“Except for last season, in the City I have had nine very good years. This year due to a knee issue it prevented me from being there for a few months, I recovered, I had COVID … but in the last four months I felt very good. The knee It’s perfect, “he wanted to reassure.
Agüero assured that when he found out about Barça’s interest “he didn’t even hesitate.” “I told my agent that I did not want him to speak to another team, only Barça. It was an immense joy when they contacted my agent. I have been interested since I was 14 years old.”
Despite being an established striker and a modern football legend, Kun knows he will have to fight for a place at Barcelona. “My role is first to have a good preseason and then the decision is made by the coach. I do not consider myself in any way that I have to be a permanent starter. You have to earn it.”
