He came to be Messi's partner, and never made his debut: What was Barcelona's business of signing Sergio Agüero?

Sergio Agüero arrived at Barcelona almost 3 months ago, and to this day, he still could not make his debut. He came to the club to be Lionel Messi's partner, and he was nothing more than a burden for the Catalan team.

Barcelona lives with a reconstruction process that must face constant earthquakes on a day-to-day basis. The poor performance and the bad results, put the continuity of Ronald Koeman on a ledge that to top it off was combined with the crossed statements against President Joan Laporta. While trying to rebuild the culture of a team that lost Lionel Messi after almost two decades, the Dutch coach still has a letter in storage that he could not use due to force majeure: Sergio Agüero.

Sergio Agüero arrived at Blaugrana with the pass in his possession from Manchester City after leaving as the top scorer of that entity. Driven by injuries that marginalized him from his last tournaments in full with the club where he is an idol, the 33-year-old Argentine striker suffered a sensitive physical problem during his first training sessions with the Catalan entity and still could not make his debut.

The expectation for its appearance grows and in the last hours the tentative date for its premiere was known: October 17 against Valencia at the Camp Nou.

The Catalan newspaper Sport assured that the doctors of Barcelona calculate that Agüero will be available for that duel of the 9th date of the Spanish League. Koeman's team will face Benfica this Wednesday, September 29, for the second day of the Champions League and next Saturday (10/2) they will visit Atlético Madrid to play date 8 of the Spanish tournament.
