Rivaldo has commented about the Champions League final and future of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero at Barcelona as the Catalan club held an exclusive discussion with the Argentine. The 49-year-old, Brazil legend believes Manchester City deserves a lot of respect for reaching the Champions League final.
He told Betfair: “To reach a Champions League final is special in the career of any player or manager and being able to do it with a club that’s there for the first time in its history is even more magical. So all Manchester City’s squad, management, and staff deserve to be congratulated.”
“Of course, when a club has as much money to invest as City their chances increase because they can gather a bunch of excellent players with one of the best managers in the world. But it’s never easy to reach a final and Guardiola took some time to achieve it with the Citizens.”
Rivaldo said: “Rumours tell me that Barcelona is negotiating with Sergio Aguero to sign him when he leaves Man City at the end of the season.”
“He’s been magnificent at City and, at 32, I’m sure he will be ready to compete with Barcelona. He still has a lot of football to play and would be a great signing for Barcelona, especially coming for free at a moment when our club is having some issues for financial reasons.”
Manchester City booked their place in the Champions League Final on a 4-1 aggregate victory over last year’s runner-up PSG. on the opposite side of the competition we have Chelsea who defeated Real Madrid on 3-1 aggregate, scoring 2-0 in the second leg.
Speaking about the final, Rivaldo said: “It will be a Champions League Final between two clubs that haven’t gone so far in recent years, so it’s tough to predict which will be stronger. But it will be interesting to watch a match between two teams that know each other well.
