But now the added interest from Serie A has increased the pressure on City to make a decision on the future of their all-time record goalscorer. Juventus and Inter Milan have joined the pre-contract battle for Aguero.
The Sun says his current £250,000-a-week contract expires at the end of the season and no talks have yet taken place about a new deal.
The Premier League leaders are reluctant to commit themselves until Aguero has proved that he has fully recovered from coronavirus and a lingering knee problem.
Aguero, 32, has not started a game in four months and hasn't scored a single Premier League goal since January 2020.
