Pep Guardiola has identified Darwin Nunez as a potential successor to Sergio Aguero. The Manchester City manager signed a two-year contract extension.
Guardiola is now tied down at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2023, and he still hopes Sergio Aguero will follow suit. The Catalan insisted last month that Aguero must earn a new deal, with his current contract set to run out next summer.
According to the Sunday Telegraph, the City hierarchy are beginning to draw up a succession plan as they look to replace the club’s all-time top scorer. Benfica striker Darwin Nunez is among the players City are keeping tabs on.
The Uruguayan averaged a goal every other game for Spanish side Almeria last term, earning himself a £21.8m transfer to Benfica in the summer.
