Sergio Aguero is reportedly close to signing a new contract with Manchester City, confirming that the Argentine is a glutton for punishment.
Sources close to the player have confirmed that, following Sunday’s mauling to Chelsea, Aguero knows that he’ll never have to fear about losing his place in the starting XI – at this present time, Danny Tiatto, Kiki Musampa and Jeff Whitley are offering a greater threat to Aguero’s spot than the work experience lot that were on display at Stamford Bridge.
Aguero, who has 92 goals in 139 Premier League appearances, is believed to have been persuaded to remain at the Etihad due to the fact that Manuel Pellegrini is leaving the club and Aguero was never a fan of Art Attack.
The news of Aguero’s decision to remain with the Citizens will certainly raise a few eyebrows, with several iconic figures in the footballing world even suggesting that the Argentine is perhaps keen on doing his bit for charity.
Rumours are also circulating that the 27-year-old is open to finishing his career with Manchester City, proving that it is in fact the League Cup, rather than the Champions League, that is the greatest tournament a player can partake in and win. Here are Aguero’s comments on the illustrious competition:
“I remember playing against Sunderland in the 2014 League Cup Final; Look! I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about the occasion. The Black Cats’ pairing of John O’Shea and Wes Brown caused me trouble all day, and I was thankful when I was replaced by Jesus Navas on 58 minutes – even though I knew it meant wayward shots,underhit passes and crosses that end up in orbit“
