Former Manchester City star Michael Ball has questioned whether the club need to sign a striker to replace when he leaves the club at the end of the season, in an exclusive interview with This Is Futbol 

It has been announced that Aguero will leave once the campaign ends, bringing the curtain down on a remarkable Etihad Stadium career.

Aguero has won four Premier League titles, the FA , and six League Cups during his tenure as City’s main striker, scoring 258 goals in 386 appearances.

Will City miss Aguero?

No, he had his time

No, he had his time

Yes, he was amazing

Yes, he was amazing

This season, he has been gradually phased out by manager Pep Guardiola, with the Argentina making just six starts.

Without him, one would have expected Gabriel Jesus to have taken his place in most games but he has made 19 starts.

City have often gone without a central striker, as they did against PSG in the Champions League.

Guardiola’s side won the game 2-1 with a front three of Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden, and Riyad . They are also 13 points clear of Manchester United at the top of the Premier League.

As a result, Ball wonders whether there actually needs to be a striker signing this summer.

He told TIF: “But we all like the big signings, we all like the big names coming to the football club and City have got a big question to answer really, whether they’re actually going to go out and spend the cash and feel like they need to because Aguero’s gone.

“But they’ve handled it without him.”
