Sergio Aguero extends his stay at Manchester City

Argentina striker Sergio Kun Aguero has extended his stay at Manchester City after signing a one-year contract extension.

The extension will see the striker remain at the Etihad Stadium until 2021, bringing to an end to speculation that he wanted to reunite with his parent club Indepentiente either after this summer’s World Cup or in 2019.

Although the former Atletico Madrid forward doesn’t see eye to eye with his Spanish boss Pep Guardiola, his performance has improved over the last two years.

Aguero joined Man City from in 2011 from Atletico for a fee believed to be in the region of £35million. 

At the start of 2016, he signed a new deal with the club but the deal was never officially announced by the club or the player.

"I am happy for this additional year," Aguero told CityTV.

"My idea was being here for 10 years. I’ve been here for seven years, it’s going to be 10 when the contract expires,” he added.

"Hopefully, that's going to happen. This was the main reason I signed."

Aguero has scored 204 goals in 299 matches for City – more than any other player in the club’s history.
