Juventus outbid Barcelona in Aguero pre-contract battle

Juventus are threatening Barcelona plans for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

With his deal expiring in June, Aguero is free to discuss terms with foreign clubs and it emerged this week that Barca have tabled a two-year pre-contract offer to the Argentine's minders.

Aguero is impressed and had told family members that he was to join Barca next season.

However, Cuatro says Juve have made their pitch to Aguero and with a superior offer.

While Barca's deal is worth €7-8m a year, Juve's proposal is a clear €10m-a-year and has Aguero rethinking his position.
