Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is accepting a hefty pay-cut to move to Barcelona this summer.

 

Aguero will leave City when his contract expires at the end of next month.

 

Beteve says Aguero has agreed to join the La Liga giants on a two-year deal that could see him link up with his international team-mate Lionel Messi next season.

 

The report also claims that the striker has lowered his salary demands to help push the deal over the line.

 

Aguero was said to be earning £12million a year at Manchester City, while his new deal at Barcelona will see him earn £4.4m (€5m).

 

Aguero is no stranger to La Liga having spent five years with Atletico Madrid before his move to Manchester in 2011.

 

Barcelona also hope Aguero’s arrival will convince Messi to stay put and sign a new two-year contract with his current deal due to expire at the end of June.
