It is not an easy feat to snap up a top player from a rival club, and when they’re city rivals, it becomes even tougher.

The rule of this game is never to strengthen your rivals, but the situation surrounding Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is that he’d be a free agent at the end of the season.

He’s in the final year of his contract with Manchester City, and he’s also a club legend. Aguero could be seen as one of the best players in the history of Manchester City, and one could wonder if a move to Manchester United would interest him.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov, believes United can snap up the Argentine, the same way City snapped up Carlos Tevez some years ago.

“I think Aguero would feel strange going to United, but I was there when his countryman Carlos Tevez left us to join City,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“It was a surprise for me and everyone else at the club to see Carlos go to City, maybe it was for some kind of statement to United, you could say revenge.

“These days it’s not too unusual to see players move to their rival clubs, it’s business at the end of the day and for Aguero it’s his choice where he goes next, he doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone.”
