Steve Howey has ruled out the possibility of Sergio Aguero moving over to the red half of Manchester next season.
The Argentina international, who is 32 years of age, will leave the club as the club’s top scorer in the Premier League in a decade in Manchester lined with silverware and memorable goals – including his title-winning added-time strike against QPR in 2012.
However, ex-United man Paul Ince recently claimed that his former side should sign Aguero on a free transfer – something Howey cannot see happening.
Speaking to Football FanCast, Howey said: “He could do, but do I think he’ll go there? Probably not. I’m not too sure what the circumstances were when Tevez left Man United to join City.
“I don’t think Aguero has got that same relationship with the fans that Tevez did, I think he has a much better relationship. So I can’t see him doing the dirty on the fans.”
Given Aguero’s long-standing relationship with the club, it is hard to see him betraying the memories and legacy he has built by playing for City’s local rivals.
However, Aguero could still remain in the Premier League; he has recently been linked with Chelsea.
As Howey references, it wouldn’t be the first time a multiple title winner crossed the Manchester divide – with compatriot Carlos Tevez swapping red for blue in 2009.
It seems Aguero is only done with City and not the English game, though his eventual destination come next season is anyone’s guess.
