Manchester City’s legendary striker pens contract extension

Argentina international Sergio Aguero has extended his contract with Manchester City by a further 12 months. The striker’s previous deal was due to conclude in the summer of 2020 and the latest extension may ensure that he would complete a decade of service with the reigning Premier League champions.

In a report covered by City’s website, Aguero highlighted that he is pleased to have prolonged his contract with the Mancunian giants and he is hopeful of staying put for the entirety of the current deal.

Aguero has been a fantastic performer for the Citizens over the past nine years and during this period, he has gone on to become their all-time leading scorer whilst also surpassing the 200-goal mark for the club this term.

Despite this, the marksman has previously indicated that he would like to return to his homeland to feature for boyhood Independiente in the future and that could become a possibility when his City contract expires at the end of the 2020/21 season.

Aguero, 30, has shared the centre-forward position with Gabriel Jesus since the start of the current campaign but he has still commanded more starts, given his effectiveness in finding the scoresheet.

The Argentine just lasted for an hour during the recent 5-0 Premier League triumph over Cardiff City on the road but he nevertheless made his mark by contributing the opening goal of the game.

Pep Guardiola’s side are scheduled to make the trip to struggling League One side Oxford United in the EFL Cup third round on Tuesday night and the match may witness Aguero feature from the bench if required.
