Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler has revealed a conversation he had with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero which offers a clue about Pep Guardiola’s transfer plans this summer.
Aguero, who is set to leave at the end of the season after a decade of service at the Etihad, received a guard of honour prior to City’s final Premier League game of the campaign – a 5-0 win over Everton.
While the Argentine was enjoying his moment in the spotlight, Tyler was busy revealing the details of a conversation between himself and the striker earlier in the week – offering an insight into City’s transfer plans.
“I’ll be honest with you, I was lucky enough to meet him on Wednesday and he’s sad to be leaving”, said Tyler.
“I think he would have stayed but the word he used to me was – ‘this is business, they want to bring in another striker’ and I think we can all guess who that might be.”
Tyler was referring to wantaway Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane, who has been heavily linked with a sensational move to the Etihad.
As we revealed on Saturday night, City made an enquiry for the England captain back in January.
Spurs told Pep Guardiola and co. to forget it, but that won’t dissuade the Etihad club from trying again now Kane has expressed his desire to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Guardiola was asked a few days ago about the prospect of signing Kane, but the Spaniard kept his cards close to his chest, saying: "He’s a player for Tottenham, it's not correct for me to talk about that.
"I know you are relating it but I don’t want to talk about it," said Guardiola. "It’s a game for Sergio, we want to respect the competition."
Aguero, who scored a brace in his final Premier League match as City thrashed Everton 5-0, could bow out in spectacular style next weekend as the Sky Blues face Chelsea in the Champions League.
