According to The Times, Manchester City have finally confirmed that Sergio Agüero has signed a one-year contract extension with the club, keeping him at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2020.

This news hasn’t been announced publicly by the club yet, but appears on the back page of Saturday’s edition of The Times in an article by Paul Hirst, and appears to be information that has come from within City.

Hirst wrote, “City confirmed yesterday that Aguero has signed a new one-year contract extension until the summer of 2020.”

Agüero’s contract has been the cause of much confusion for almost a year now after multiple sources learned that he had extended his deal. City Watch received similar information and FIFA documents also confirmed some sort of transaction had taken place.

This news comes on the same day that rumours surfaced that Agüero could be on his way out of the club after a mysterious late night dinner with Pep Guardiola. While a contract extension doesn’t necessarily rule that out (especially if signed prior to this week), it is an encouraging sign that Agüero could stick around or at the very least a long deal protects his transfer value.

22:30 UPDATE: Pep Guardiola appeared to confirm Kun’s contract extension at his press conference today.
