Dortmund are reported to need now not decrease than 150m euros (£128m) for Norway world Haaland, whose agent Mino Raiola has met with Barcelona and Accurate Madrid just a few pass.
Haaland's recent deal expires in 2024, though it is miles conception to contain a begin clause of 75m euros (£64m) that might per chance per chance be activated next year.
England captain Harry Kane is one other conceivable option for City, though his Tottenham contract furthermore would now not expire till 2024.
Aguero, who signed from Atletico Madrid in 2011, is City's narrative goalscorer, with 257 dreams in 384 appearances for the club.
He famously scored the hurt-time winner in opposition to QPR in 2012 which clinched the club's first English title in 44 years, and has since helped City protect three more Premier League titles, one FA Cup and 5 League Cups.
Guardiola talked about it is miles "impossible" that City might per chance per chance replace the Argentine with any person that would replicate his achievements.
"All of us know the scheme crucial he's in recent and past, these choices are by no manner easy," he talked about.
"Perchance we'll pick up a recent player to interchange him but when it comes to numbers? Not seemingly.
"In terms of what he manner? Not seemingly."
