Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman will only accept Sergio Aguero joining the club this summer if Memphis Depay also moves to the Nou Camp, according to reports. Both Aguero and Depay are out of contract at their respective clubs at the end of the season.

Manchester City announced on Monday their record goalscorer Aguero would be leaving the club this summer.

The Argentine has been linked with a host of clubs already, including Manchester United and Chelsea, as well as Barca.

Depay looks set to leave Lyon in a similar way to Aguero’s departure from City.

Koeman wanted to sign his fellow Dutchman last summer but failed to get a deal over the line.

Spanish outlet AS say Koeman would prefer the club to sign Depay over Aguero.

However, he would accept Aguero as long as Depay becomes a Barca player too.

Aguero has experience in La Liga, having spent five years at Atletico Madrid before joining City in 2011.

The 32-year-old has won 10 major honours during his time at the Etihad and is set to add to that tally before he leaves.

Aguero hopes the current City squad can continue to build on the success the club have had in the past decade.

Aguero wrote on his social media: “I was to join during the reconstruction era of 2011, and with the guidance of the owners and the contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world.

“The task to maintain this well-deserved privileged position will remain on others. As for myself, I will continue to give it my utmost for the rest of the season to win more titles and bring more joy to the fans.

“Then, a new stage with new challenges will begin, and I am fully ready to face them with the same passion and professionalism that I have always dedicated to continue competing at the highest level.”

City boss Pep Guardiola paid tribute to the departing striker on Tuesday.

“Sergio is irreplaceable,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.

“I could say in terms of numbers he can be replaceable, it’s not easy when you see more than 360 games played and more than 250 goals, the amount of titles…

“So it’s the legend, the best striker this club has ever had for this century through the years, but is irreplaceable in the souls, in the hearts, in the minds of our fans, of our people, of the players that played alongside him and all the managers who worked with him.”
