Sergio Aguero had a terrible ending to his soccer career as he was unable to continue due to his heart condition but the former Manchester City ace has kept himself busy while streaming. Back in 2020, Aguero started KRÜ Esports to promote gaming in South America.
Recently Aguero has posted on the KRÜ Esports social media that he is going to be joined by long-time friend and teammate Lionel Messi as the co-owner of the company. The Press release from KRÜ Esports read “The goal is to add their experience in the world of traditional professional sports to the universe of e-sports and new digital media.”
CEO of KRÜ Esports, Aguero has said that it is an honor that Messi is now a part of the team as he is the best player in the world. He also said that the presence of Messi is relevant as “he projects values such as perseverance, humility and resilience.”

Shortly after this announcement former Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea responded by saying “Okay, I’ll call Cristiano” hinting at the fact that De Gea, currently without a club can also go down the same path as Aguero and would be willing to bring in Cristiano.
Fans online went crazy after De Gea’s reply saying things such as “Great way to continue the rivalry”, “Crying on Instagram and here as well”, “So obsessed with Messi” etc. It remains to be seen whether Aguero responds to this comment or not and how much Messi plays a part in the development of KRÜ Esports across the globe.
The uncertain future of David De Gea
With 190 clean sheets to his name David De Gea is the player with the most clean sheets in the history of Manchester United. But during the past few seasons, the Spaniard had fallen off his great standards with his ball distribution abilities and goalkeeping abilities in general taking a hit.

During the start of the season, De Gea did not want to be a second-choice keeper and hence left the club without even a proper farewell. The player has also stated that he would only join a top club where he would be the first choice for the goalkeeper.
Clubs from Saudi were fast to approach him but the player opted to play in Europe. Reports suggest that the player is not concerned about the future and will likely retire without any regrets if no suitable offer comes.

There were also some reports suggesting that Manchester United might go for a short-term loan in January as Onana will be gone for AFCON duty but it looks unlikely that De Gea will return to Old Trafford.
A few days ago the player was spotted in Manchester as he looks to bring back some of the things he left back in his home. The player is reported to stay in the UK for some time before joining his family back in Spain.
