Argentine striker, Sergio Aguero, whose contract with the English side, Manchester City will end in June 2021 has come out to state categorically that Barcelona is the best club in the world.
Interestingly, the decorated Manchester City striker will join Barcelona on a two-year contract when his contract expires at the end of June. The 32-year-old Argentine leaves City after 10 years at the club, during which he became their all-time leading goalscorer winning five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and six League Cups while he had a stint at the Etihad stadium.

Aguero who currently believes Barcelona is the best club has scored 260 goals in 390 games at Man City, and is currently the fourth-highest goalscorer in the history of the Premier League.
His last appearance was when he came off the bench in Saturday’s Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.
He however made mention in an interview with a Spanish football outfit that Barcelona is the best club in the world and he is happy to join them.

“We all know that Barcelona are the best club in the world,” said Aguero.
“I think I made a great decision to be here and of course it is a step forward in my career.
“I am really happy and hopefully I can help the team to win things.” Aguero will have a buyout clause of 100m euros at Barcelona.
Aguero, who won 15 major trophies during his time at Manchester City, will join compatriot and close friend Lionel Messi at the Nou Camp as the Catalan club look to improve on a third-place finish in La Liga.
The Catalonia club had a very terrible season, finishing behind Atletico Madrid and Real
Madrid, after having sold Louis Suarez to the former for just 6m euros at the start of the season.
Barca were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Paris St-Germain but did beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 to win the Copa del Rey in April.
Messi, on the other hand, scored 38 goals, in all competitions, and became their top scorer for the season with French duo Antoine Griezmann (20) and Ousmane Dembele (11) the only others to reach double figures.
Aguero leaves the Premier League sitting fourth on the list of all-time goalscorers with 184, and has the best minutes to goals ratio in the competition’s history. He is also its highest-scoring overseas player, and in January 2020 overtook Alan Shearer to set the record for the most Premier League hattricks with 12.
City centre-back Eric Garcia and Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum have also been linked with free-transfer moves to Barcelona.
