CHRIS SUTTON: Sergio Agüero was Manchester City’s star of the last decade, now Erling Haaland could be next … Pep Guardiola’s relentless nature has always served him well

With the grief Sergio Aguero leaving Manchester City, excitement comes to the thought of who might be signed to replace him.

You must think manager Pep Guardiola has a plan. City soften the blow by bringing in Erling Haaland? Wouldn’t that be something!

When the Aguero news got out, I wondered whose decision this was.

Sergio Aguero will leave Manchester City at the end of the season

Erling Haaland could be the man to take over as City's next star

If it was Guardiola, assuming Aguero is surplus to requirements at City, can we criticize him? He is on the verge of winning another Premier League title and his ruthless nature has always served him well.

Never forget that after the takeover of Barcelona in 2008, he immediately announced that Ronaldinho, Deco and Samuel Eto’o were not in his plans.

Then he went and won the Treble in its first season!

Guardiola is not one to make big decisions. He supports himself to emerge as the winner on the other side.

The decision to let Agüero leave is tough, but Pep Guardiola never shies away from a big call

I am sure Aguero will understand that this is the business of football. Attackers are getting older, competition is getting fierce, and everyone’s career must come to an end at some point.

Agüero will no doubt enjoy a few more goals full of goals before it finally turns into a day. They just won’t be with City.
