The Argentine has extended his contract until the summer of 2021
Sergio Aguero has signed a one year contract extension at Manchester City. He has extended the contract until the summer of 2021, bringing to an end the uncertainty surrounding his future at the Etihad Stadium.
He said of his new deal as quoted by Goal: “I am happy for this additional year. 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.This was the main reason I signed.
“I’m very happy because they have treated my very well since the first day I got here. I’m very happy with everything that involves the club, my teammates, the staff and the management team.
“It’s true that we’ve got a lot of young talent, that in the future can make the difference. At the same time the youngsters are quite developed already, like Leroy [Sane], Raheem [Sterling], Bernardo [Silva] and Gabriel [Jesus].
“There are a lot of players, that have got things to improve and learn, but being in this club you learn and improve faster than anywhere else.
“We have a good team, we need to be focused and if we are at 100 per cent, we have lots of chances to do great things.”
The Argentina International joined the English side from Atlectico Madrid back in 2011 for a reported £38 million fee, signing a 5 year contract. He has been an integral part of the team since joining them, winning three Premier League titles and is their record scorer with 204 goals.
However, the striker’s future was uncertain this summer and was suggested that he could leave this summer to his former club. But he is enjoying life at City and his representatives have been in talks with the club in recent weeks to hammer out a fresh agreement.
City’s director of football, Txiki Begiristain, added: “We are delighted that Sergio is extending his stay at Manchester City.
“He has been so important to this Club since his arrival in 2011 and he remains at the forefront of what we are want to achieve in the coming years.
“We are fortunate to have had one of the best strikers in the world at our Club for so many years and I’m sure our supporters will be thrilled with this news.”
