Sergio Aguero has revealed that Bayern Munich were interested in signing him as a youngster, but that ultimately they ended up signing a rival teams player because he played so poorly in front of the German teams scouts.

Aguero burst onto the scene as a teenager in Argentina, having worked his way through the ranks at Independiente and eventually garnering interest from Europes elite.

He would eventually sign for Atletico Madrid as his first club outside of South America of course, but things could have been different had he played better when Bayerns recruitment team watched him in person.

Taking part in a question and answer session on Twitter, an old front page of Argentine publication Ole was put to the former striker, with the story seemingly making out that Bayern were on the verge of signing him.

Explaining what happened, Aguero said: “They told me what happened with that story. Someone from Bayern came to see me play against Estudiantes. I played horrible that day and they ended up falling in love with Jose Sosa.

“They bought Sosa.”

Aguero will surely be best remembered for his 93:20 goal against Queens Park Rangers, a strike that won Manchester City the Premier League ahead of fierce rivals Manchester United.

However, despite having spent five successful years at Atletico Madrid, the Argentine said his favourite goal in La Liga came during his short stint at Barcelona before having to retire due to a heart condition.

On his most special strike in Spains top tier, Aguero said: “Ill say the last goal I scored against Real Madrid, because I didnt know that later Id have to retire. It will always be special… even though we lost!”
