Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero scored 258 goals for Manchester City in the last ten seasons and is set to leave the club in a matter of weeks, but club manager Pep Guardiola isn't worried about how to replace him in the upcoming transfer window. 

Money and appeal certainly aren't a problem for Guardiola to prey a top scorer from another team, but the catalan mastermind instead of offering top money for yet another star might very well stay put, thinking he already has a top striker in Ferran Torres. The spanish, 21, arrived at the club as a winger but was converted to central striker this season, and early returns are positive for the youngster, who scored 13 goals in all competitions this season, including a hat trick for Spain in a Nations League match against Germany.

Just last night, Torres scored a hat trick against Newcastle, and Guardiola was obviously pleased. "He came as a winger but I really have to think of him as a striker", he said commenting Torres' performance. 

So maybe, when it's all said and done, Guardiola won't have to spend top money for a new striker, but he'll just trust Torres, and his own instincts.
