Sergio Aguero’s sparkling spell with Manchester City is set to come to an end with the Argentine announcing he is going to leave the club at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old’s contract comes to an end at the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign and the club have no confirmed that he is not in line for an extension, bringing to an end of the most trophy-laden union’s in football in the last few decades.
In a statement released on social media on Monday evening, Aguero wrote: “When a cycle comes to an end, many sensations arise.
“A huge sense of satisfaction and pride remains in me for having played with Manchester City for a whole ten seasons – unusual for a professional player this day and age.
“Ten seasons with major achievements, throughout which i was able to become the top historic goalscorer and forging an indestructible bond with all those who love the club – people who will always be in my heart.”
The Argentine’s spell with City comes to an end with him having made 384 appearances for the club so far and having become their record goalscorer with 257 strikes since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
He has also played a huge part in the club’s successes having lifted four Premier League titles – including having scored the famous last-minute winning goal that saw Manchester City claim the title in 2012. Aguero has also won five Carabao Cups as well as an FA Cup.
He could depart the Etihad Stadium with a quadruple to his name with Pep Guardiola’s men continuing to challenge on four fronts including the UEFA Champions League.
As it stands, Barcelona are the favourites to swoop for Aguero. The Catalans can be backed at a price of 11/10 with Betfair to be his employers after the upcoming summer transfer window.
