Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has told his family and close friends that he will be joining Barcelona next season, SportingLife reports.
Last month, Aguero confirmed he will be leaving The Etihad at the end of the current campaign.
It will bring an end to his 10-year stay with City.
During that time, the Argentine has scored 257 goals in 385 games.
Tottenham, Chelsea and Leeds United have all been linked with Aguero, with the option of him staying in England seemingly on the table for the striker.
A return to Spain has also emerged as another possibility for Aguero.
The 32-year-old made 230 appearances for Atletico Madrid between 2006 and 2011, netting 100 times.
However, it is Barcelona who are believed to be close to landing Aguero.
