Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports of Pep Guardiola’s interest in Benfica striker Darwin Núñez as a potential Sergio Aguero’s replacement.
Agüero’s peak is clearly coming to its end and there are concerns at the Etihad that Gabriel Jesus is not of the level required to be the Argentine’s replacement.
The challenge of replacing Agüero is certainly one of the problem areas of the Man City squad. The City’s record goal scorer will enter the final year of his contract this summer and there hasn’t been any indication that he will pen fresh terms at the Etihad Stadium.
According to Record Portugal via Sport_Witness, Guardiola considers Núñez to have the right ‘striker profile’ that he wants to replace Sergio Aguero.
The report claims It’s Guardiola who gave this ‘express indication’, and City now continue to monitor the striker following his €24m move to Benfica from Almeria .in September.
Mundo Deportivo (h/t Football Espana) say Benfica have slapped a €40m (£35.9m) asking price on Nunez’s head, but manager Jorge Jesus believes he will be the club’s most-expensive sale. Nunez looks a talented player who would improve our squad, but he won’t come cheap.

he’s top quality, but not what we need, more potential than proven

There’s one player we need to sign to replace Aguero. Everyone wants him, but now is the time to put our dicks on the table and get him. Håland is the answer.

As talented as he is, we need Haaland.
Let’s stop playing around and go out and get the best.
It’s about time we got a massive star. Wouldn’t be where we are in the league right now if we had taken the plunge on some of the big boys.
