Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will join Barcelona on a two-year contract when his contract expires at the end of June. The Argentine, 32, leaves City after 10 years at the club, during which he became their all-time leading goalscorer with 260 goals in 390 games.

His last appearance came off the bench in Saturday’s Champions League final defeat by Chelsea. Aguero will have a buyout clause of 100m euros (£86m) at Barcelona. Aguero, who won 15 major trophies during his time in Manchester, will join compatriot and close friend Lionel Messi at the Nou Camp as the Catalan club look to improve on a third-place finish in La Liga.

They finished behind Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, having sold Luis Suarez to the former for just 6m euros (£5.2m) at the start of the season. Barca were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Paris St-Germain, but did beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 to win the Copa del Rey in April.

Messi was their top goalscorer with 38 goals in all competitions, with French duo Antoine Griezmann (20) and Ousmane Dembele (11) the only others to reach double figures.
