Aguero wants to move to MLS.

Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero is reportedly eyeing a transfer to Major League Soccer just months after joining the Catalan club.

Aguero moved to the Nou Camp on a free transfer from Manchester City as he dreamt of joining hands with his compatriot and long-time friend Lionel Messi.

However, Messi’s shocking move to PSG has left Aguero in huge disappointment and he is already contemplating his future in La Liga.

PSG star Angel Di Maria has recently made a meal of Aguero’s situation, stating that the Argentine would look to kill himself after knowing about Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint Germain.

Di Maria said: “Kun wants to kill himself, what can you do. Apart from all that [Messi leaving Barcelona], the worst thing is that he got injured again and will be out for several weeks. That’s the saddest thing.”

Barca planning to terminate Umtiti’s contract

Barcelona have reportedly become wary of Samuel Umtiti’s stance and are willing to terminate his contract should he opt against leaving the club.

The French centre-back has become a fringe figure at Nou Camp in recent years and he is currently not in the plans of Ronald Koeman either.

Barca, who are in a deep financial crisis, are pushing to offload several outcasts but Umtiti is firm on his stance to continue at the club as he feels that he would be paid less elsewhere.

The Catalan club were able to register new signings only after Gerard Pique agreed to take a significant pay cut.
