One of the most talked-about players this summer has to be Sergio Aguero. The Italian international has made a name for himself since joining Athletico Madrid nearly two years ago and since then has become one of the deadliest attacking threats in the league. With the transfer window fast approaching and a lot of clubs rumored to be making a move for the talented striker, many fans are looking forward to seeing what sort of deal they can secure for the 30-year-old.
In this piece, I am going to outline some of the more sensational highlights of what makes Aguero so special.
Sergio Aguero – Diego Maradona impacted The Season
First of all, there is the funny aspect to the story behind why Sergio Aguero decided to leave Manchester City upon his arrival at the PFA team this summer. As was widely reported in various press outlets across the UK, the defender did not enjoy living in Manchester and wanted a change of scenery after the highly publicized daily battles that the Italian media regularly pour on him.
Upon arriving at the PFA camp, Aguero immediately started to gel with the other players and soon became an immediate hit with manager David Wagner and the rest of the team hierarchy. However, during the pre-season training camp, things became tense between the striker and coach Pep Guardiola, with the latter making it clear that he had other center-backs in mind before choosing Aguero. In the end, despite having a heated argument with the Spaniard, the player was given the chop and moved to Inter Milan later in the summer on a one-year contract.

Another great thing that happened during the season, as has already been mentioned, was the return of Diego Maradona. The former Argentina international managed to form a good relationship again with ex-manager Roberto Mancini at AC Milan and will hope to continue where he left off in his time at Los Angeles Galaxy.
Despite missing two months of action due to the birth of his baby son, Maradona made a solid impact on the club’s results, scoring 5 goals in 7 matches, including a brace in the famous victory against reigning European champions Chelsea. While Mancini was not happy with the manner in which Maradona left the club, the Argentine legend refused to talk down the time in which he was let go, insisting that he still has “many years” in his body. With some good performances in the MLS this season, the 33-year-old will hope to be retained by Mexico for the 2021 World Cup.
