Man City's record scorer extends stay

Man City's record scorer extends stay

The striker, 30, had said in March he could leave City in 2020, when his previous deal was due to expire, as he wanted to end his career at boyhood club Independiente in his native Argentina - where his family are still based.

Sergio Aguero has signed a new contract with Manchester City.

"I am happy for this additional year", Agüero, City's all-time leading goalscorer, said.

"We are delighted that Sergio is extending his stay at Manchester City", he told the club's official media.

"My idea was being here for 10 years".

The Belgium worldwide, who scored eight goals and provided 16 assists in City's record-breaking league title triumph last season, picked up the injury in training last month. "This was the main reason I signed". "I'm very happy because they have treated me very well since the first day I got here". The Germany worldwide was withdrawn at halftime and replaced by Leroy Sane.

Better news for City fans is that Belgian star Kevin De Bruyne appears to be making a good recovery from his knee ligament injury which has prevented him playing since August. "At the same time, the youngsters are quite developed already, like Leroy, Raheem, Bernardo [Silva] and Gabriel".

"We have a good team, we need to be focused and if we are at 100%, we have lots of chances to do great things".
