Sergio Aguero said he hopes to stay at Manchester till the contract runs out, but ultimately his future will depend on the club.
“I have until 2020, I think. The truth is that I hope to see out my contract, and I’ll try to do my best from here until the end of the season, and after that we will see what happens with me.” – Aguero said to Goal’s Sam Lee.
When asked whether he would like to stay at the Etihad, he answered affirmatively.
“Yes, for me yes. Obviously my plan is not to change clubs. The truth is I’m very happy here, but as always, as I said before, the club has the last word, they’re the only ones who decide, because obviously, the club is the one who makes the decisions, they are the ones who say you have to go or have to stay, so I’ll respect whatever they tell me.”
Aguero’s time at Manchester:
The 29-year old has enjoyed a wonderful spell at Manchester City. He scored 33 goals last season, with 16 from 22 in this one. The arrival of Gabriel Jesus last summer meant Guardiola rotated the squad regularly.
Pep has transformed the City side in two years, with major signings and tactical changes. His style of play requires a lot of off-the-ball pressing an aspect which Sergio wasn’t acquainted with earlier. Yet, Aguero has been working hard to seal his name on the team sheet.
Jesus’ recent injury has sidelined him for 4-6 weeks. This spell could help Aguero keep his place at the club beyond this summer.
Guardiola’s past with players might affect Aguero:
Guardiola has shown in the past he’s willing to move players on if they don’t fit into the system he desires regardless of the talent they possess—he shipped Ronaldinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of Barcelona, for example—so Aguero’s phenomenal record and status at City may do little to spare him the same fate.
