Manchester City certainly have a long and rich history of talented strikers who play for the club, from Uwe Rosler to Niall Quinn, to Carlos Tevez in modern times, the club usually have goals.
No other name deserves to be mentioned on this list other than Argentine Sergio Aguero, who played for the club for a decade between 2011 and 2021, after coming from La Liga club Atletico Madrid.
During Sergio Aguero’s time at Manchester, the player became – and remains – Manchester City’s top scorer, with a fine performance that was finally achieved in a Champions League match against Napoli in 2017.
After his departure in the summer of 2021, when Aguero moved to FC Barcelona at the end of his Manchester City contract, the club failed to find a striker to immediately replace him, often playing a fake nine system in games in the 2021/2022 season. . That is until now.

The club recently announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland earlier this month at an initial transfer fee of £ 51 million, and the Norwegian international is expected to join Pep Guardiola’s side from 1 July.
A lot has been said about what will be the biggest transfer of the summer and now Sergio Aguero himself has decided on the upcoming Norwegian sensation, and given predictions about the player’s level of success at the Blue.
“I think this is a great draw. He (Erling Haaland) was able to contribute to scoring and was great. I hope he racks up a ton of goals”Sergio Aguero told Stake.com.
Sergio Aguero continued, “Adapting to the Premier League will take some time for him, but I am sure he will be able to do well.. ”
Looks like Sergio Aguero’s comments are also warranted, as Erling Haaland scored 89 goals in 86 games for the German club – almost the average goal per game during his time in the Bundesliga.
Sergio Aguero continues to be a legend at Manchester City and the Premier League as a whole, winning five top-flight titles with the Etihad club during his 10 years remaining in the division.
With this in mind, a positive comment like this would have been the approval Erling Haaland wanted before joining Manchester City and enjoying Premier League action for the first time.
