A born goalscorer
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 2 June 1988, Sergio Leonel Agüero del Castillo comes to Barça to keep on doing what he has always done: score goals. At the age of 15 years and 35 days he became the youngest player ever to play in the Argentine First Division with Club Atlético Independiente. A move to Europe saw the striker triumph first at Atlético Madrid in La Liga before moving to Manchester City where he set all kinds of goalscoring records.
Agüero played his last game for Manchester City, appearance number 390, in the recent Champions League final against Chelsea in Porto.
After 10 seasons with the Premier League, he leaves a lengend as the club's all time top scorer and as the foreign player with most goals in the Premier League.
In total with Manchester City he scored 260 goals, created 74 assists and won 15 trophies - 5 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup, 6 League Cups and 3 Community Shields, the Premier League's version of the Super Cup.
On an international level, Agüero was part of the Argentine U-20 World Cup winning squads in 2005 and 2007 as well as winning an Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008 alongside Leo Messi.
Experience in La Liga
Barça will not be his first experience of playing in La Liga. In 2006 he left Independiente for Atlético Madrid and quickly made his name as one of the best strikers in Europe, winning a Europa League title in 2010, the UEFA Super Cup in 2011 before adding to his collection of honours in England with Manchester City.
