A host of Europe’s biggest clubs are hungry to seal the Argentine’s signature after a stunning 257 goals in 385 games for City.
Paris Saint Germain and Juventus are closely monitoring the striker’s situation.
But it appears Barcelona may be front of the queue after Aguero’s agent touched down an Catalonia for talks on Tuesday.
Meanwhole Aguero, who is missing City’s Champions League trip to Dortmund after an injury flare-up, was enjoying some upmarket Italian at Cibo restaurant in Hale with other half Sofia Calzetti.
But they could soon be dining out on as much Tapas as they can handle should he secure his switch to the Nou Camp.
A deal now remains ‘a real possibility’ as he targets a reunion with national compatriot Lionel Messi.
Barcelona are in the market for a new No9 in the summer and are also targetting Erling Haaland.
It is unlikely the club will have the financial capacity to land both Haaland and Aguero.

Aguero’s injury problems this season continued after he was left out of the travelling Champions League for Wednesday’s clash in Germany.

“He has a little, little – not a big issue – muscular problem and he is not ready.”
